Don't we ALL need a Hummer now and then?

I suppose I need to join a new club.


I've always wanted a Hummer. So the other day, I bought one.

I'm not sure what attracted me, maybe it was the sleek, flowing curvaceous lines. (um, no.) Perhaps it's the blazing speed. (no again) Maybe it's just the fact that it will piss a few people off. (hehe!)

I guess I just want to know that, regardless of the weather, the circumstances, etc., I can always hit the road. I can help a few people out of the ditch. I'm up high enough to see everything that's coming my way. Kick it into low, and there are 600+ horses that can pull you through pretty much anything that gets thrown at you.

Nothing can penetrate the armour... you can't even see in, the windows are completely tinted.

I think we choose our vehicles for reasons that aren't always obvious... but if you analyze deeply enough, maybe it makes sense.

And now, for those of you who've waited for one last look at my taillights on the way out... this one's for you.

Actually, I wanted to leave a comment on your last post but it said that new comments have been disabled by a blog administrator. What's up with that?

i guess i'm okay with it as long as you promise to drive it in the mud every now and then. being from the hoity toity OC, i see soccer moms driving hummers using them to get their nails done and pick up the dry cleaning. those hummers must be humiliated.

i saw dennis rodman's dayglo hummer a few years ago. it was sitting in a storage lot at the hummer dealership. all show - no go.

make me proud, dave. get er dirty!

Hi Chris!

Don't get me wrong, my Grandpa was my hero because he worked for everything he got and never complained. If he could have afforded a better vehicle, that would have been great. I wish he were alive right now, I'd probably have bought this for him.

We're all entitled to whatever we can afford to buy for ourselves, I believe. It's when we start expecting OTHERS to do it for us that I have the problem.

Hope that clears it up.

I love me some Hummer too! Have fun! Don't let anyone give you any crap! Hooahh!!! :)

I got a hummer last night, but not the drivey kind. :)

I almost talked my wife into letting buy the vehicle last month, but we ran across a deal for a Chevy Trailblazer we couldn't pass up. I was kind of disappointed, but it was the right financial move to make. It made sense.

Good luck with the new vehicle:)

The only thing it's missing is one of those snappy magnetic "Save our Troops" ribbon on the back:)

Beautiful vehicle, great color.

the only problem with HUMMERs is the console. it is not very conducive to the other type of hummer....

where there's a will, there's a way.
