The Hummer was the answer to the question no one asked. “What happens if you take a truck, widen and lengthening it while making it bigger and heavier, then giving it the gas mileage and styling of a brick?” When it was first unleashed upon the world, it was quite the polarizing vehicle. While the conservationist folks wrung their hands at its wastefulness, high riding Americans uncaringly roared past, a huge All-American grin on their collective faces, which led to the successful sales of 3 different models, creatively named the H1 H2 and H3. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending who you ask) the popularity of Hummers started plummeting with the rising cost of gas in the early 2000’s. With prices at the pump quickly rising into the $3 a gallon range, owning a vehicle that besides being hugely impractical, was racking up huge gas bills hastened the Hummers fall from grace. The final death knoll for this vehicle was the recession and GM issues which culminated with the brand being discontinued in 2008. Well, with gas prices now finally returned to $2, the Hummer is powering back into the automotive story! Now, you can finally bid on a 2004 Hummer H2 and it’s not totally impractical anymore! Why would you want to? Easy! With the multitude of cars today looking more and more like over sized hot wheels, what other car is so commanding as this beast which unabashedly bellows “I am American.” With a huge amount of surface area and an “in-your-face red” paint job, this is sure to command the road. Its massive 6 liter V8 and seating for 6, makes this car ideal for weekend getaways, and the zombie apocalypse! Bidding for this America-mobile began January 13 at 11:00 AM (ET) and ends January 20 at 12:20 PM (ET) starting at just $100; and remember, what you lose in MPG you gain in SMG (Smile Per Gallon)!
