Default Last Rites for the Hummer

After the Army said they would not buy any more Humvee'* from AMC/General, GM announced today a deal couldn't be reached with the Chinese and is shutting down the Hummer Brand.

Another urban assault vehicle off the road! Didn't much care for them, but still sad to see an another American car swirl down the drain.

Yep, and I had my doubts as to where it would have gone in the Chinese'* hands. The H3 was already a Tin Can wannabe of the original.
