About this book
Part company history, part business tale, and part action novel, Hummer tells the story of the Humvee's rise from a utility vehicle bred for military use to a suburban status-symbol. More that a simple story of GM's clever branding scheme at a perfect juncture in automotive, consumer, and world histories, this book is a cultural dissection of what images make American's open their pocketbooks so readily, and how buying American consumers was never so easy-or conflicted. - The H2 is a huge hit for GM- Hummer is an American icon like the Corvette and Ford Pickup- This books offers a fun-to-read story- H3 is on its way in 2006- Interest continues to grow in this unique vehicle, with buyers pushing GM production numbers up for the HummerAmerican's got their first real look at the Hummer during the first Gulf War. Interestingly, because of the advent of 24-hour news at this same point in time, the Gulf War served as priceless free advertising for AM General's war machine. After seeing the Hummer in action, movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger reportedly helped to convince AM General to prep the Hummer for civilian sales and was one of the first to own one.The attention garnered by Schwarzenegger and other celebrities like Tom Clancy, Shaquille O'Neal, G. Gordon Liddy, and any other high-profile American with $100,000 to spare spurred General Motors to acquire the Hummer name for a new range of smaller SUV's. With a well-timed second war in Iraq, General Motors saw sales of its Hummer H2 skyrocket, just as "Ahnuld" prepared for the debut of the third installment of his Terminator movies, which cemented his Hollywood status as the king of action movies since the first battle in Iraq.They say timing is everything. With the exploration of everything from consumer buying habits and American economics to global military action and big-budget Hollywood star power, HUMMER tells the story of how priceless and valuable timing has been for America's largest and most recognizable SUV.About the AuthorMartin Padgett is the editor of the Web's Automotive Authority, www.TheCarConnection.com, and contributes regularly to Stuff magazine as the resident "road warrior." He also writes car news and columns for Import Tuner, Edmunds.com, and other publications. Padgett lives in Atlanta's Morningside neighborhood with his partner of seven years and four cats, an ever-changing roster of cars in the driveway, and easy access to the Gulf Coast.

    Nice WHITE LEDs fo my 2010 Hummer H3

    Outstanding customer service. This package is for 8 LEDS but the Hummer H3 has 10 bulbs. Emailed customer service and they sent out two more LEDS for free - really nice of them.About the lights....They are easy to install - takes 5 minutes to put all 10 in. The hardest ones will be the two in the front on the floor. They are tough to see and you have to put the front seats back and get under the dash to see them. Once there you can use a flat head screw driver to slightly pry the OEM bulb up and out. Then grab it with your fingers and pull it out. I wore latex gloves during installation and I recommend you do so as well. Also, press in the interior light override button so the lights don't come on when the doors are opened. This is located next to the headlight knob switch. That way the OEM lights won't be hot when removing. Safety tip. For the dome and reading light bulbs just use a flat head screw driver to pry the plastic covers off and the bulbs pop right out... 5/5 BOGY.

    One of those fine smell which you will try to remember, unfortunately it's very short lived

    0 3/5 Salman (San Diego) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hummer 2 By Hummer For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 4.2 Ounces (Health and Beauty) Hummer H2, smell wise is satisfactory. Indeed a very pleasant smell, however it fades off after about 3-4 hours of wearing it. I know the stories about olfactory, however I am sure that it should have stayed longer, but it does not.Had it been for smell only, the product would have received somewhere around 4.5 stars, however it has serious longevity issues. You can wear this if you are going for a date and know that the whole session would not last for more than 3 hours. Nice perfume to wear when you are spending some quality time with your partner. NOT advised for an all-day affair. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 21, 2014

    Hummer

    0 3/5 Derek - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hummer H2 12V Two Seater, Yellow (Toy) I bought the Hummer for my 5 yr old son in July of 2013. Assembly was fairly easy and took half an hour. The only problem I had with it was the cover to the switch that makes it go 2.5 mph or 5.0 mph. I had to take it off because if I tightened the screws too tight the hummer would not move at all. No big problem if you don't mind what setting its on.After owning it for 3 months, the hood has broken off. This car is not kid proof. They will inevitably crash it into things or each other. The hood is screwed threw the thin plastic by two screws and does not hold up to kids opening the hood too far or crashes.Battery life is ok but in my opinion, it doesn't last long enough, maybe ~50 minutes if you are lucky. Price is too high!My opinion is based on a Power Wheels lil car that I have and compare the hummer to. Battery life is longer and have zero issues with it, even after a year and a half. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 6, 2013

    Cheap knock off, Caveat Emptor!

    We've had this hummer for a little over a year now and its been nothing but trouble! Worked ok for the first 8 months or so but my kids were scared to use it so it got very little use. When my little guy got brave we broke it out and it finally got some actual use. Unfortunately it was hardly up to the task of operating like it was designed to. First the battery wouldn't hold a charge but it turns out it was the cheap charger they supply had crapped out so i bought one for 30$ at local battery store. Then not a month later the battery melted at the terminals so I bought one for 25$ on amazon. Next the bolt that holds the steering arm together fell off because the nut had rattled loose. Once I found the hardware in my yard I used some Loctite threadlocker on that sucker, would have been nice from the factory. Now the motor on the left side wheel has crapped out on me. Only the right side works which will get you nowhere nor is it good to run it like that anyway. Having trouble even... 3/5 rayman 850 - See all my reviews This review is from: Hummer H2 12V Two Seater, Yellow (Toy) We've had this hummer for a little over a year now and its been nothing but trouble!
