GM has revealed that they will be closing their HUMMER brand after an attempt to sell the brand to the Chinese Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machines Co. has failed.
I’ll ask you one thing: Can you ever imagine a Chinese Hummer??! Can you imagine a “MADE IN CHINA” tag on your brand new Hummer???!!
No I guess not!!!
My opinion is that closing HUMMER is for the best, selling it to the Chinese… well it just doesn’t sound or fit right. It’s like all those Daewoo shitty cars that got the Chevrolet badge (and fame?) overnight.. but for God’s sake they still look like Korean shitty vehicles!!!
For one the HUMMER, along with the Willys, the CJ-7 and several other traditional off roads are the epitomy of the Pure American off road vehicles. You simply cannot have a Hummer made in China, or a Wrangler Jeep made in Korea!
Sad news indeed, I’m not much of an SUV or Offroad fan myself, but Hummer took the cake for being ugly, monstrous, thus unique 😀
So long HumsHums
