    GM to shut down Hummer

    CBC News - Money - GM to shut down Hummer after deal collapses

    Hummer, the off-road vehicle that once symbolized America's love for hulking SUVs, has hit a dead end after its planned sale to a Chinese heavy equipment maker collapsed late Wednesday.

    Heavy equipment maker Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machines Co. pulled out of the deal for Hummer, known for its military-like SUVs, because it was unable to get clearance from Chinese regulators within the proposed deal timeframe, the manufacturer said in a separate statement.A long row of unsold H3s sit at a Hummer dealership in Castle Rock, Colo., in 2008.A long row of unsold H3s sit at a Hummer dealership in Castle Rock, Colo., in 2008.

    GM said it will continue to honour existing Hummer warranties.
    Someone in the comments section said it best:

    "Bye Hummer - won't miss you, but be happy that your products will be held up to future generations as icons of a absurd and dangerously self-centered age."

    Feigned outraged, as though someone will read this thread one day and admire you for it.

    The Hummer is just a GM's Suburban frame with a fake Humvee like skin and almost non of the Humvee's abilities. Mostly they have been a waste of money.

    If someone wants a real Humvee they will still be around for a while and they are not made by GM as some thought when talk of the China deal first surfaced.

    I don't think they'll be missed either. I'd have call this no big deal.

    This is a serious win for sexual innuendo. From now on a hummer will only be a sex act.

    Can't believe it took them this long to shut it down.

    I honestly thought they were ugly cars and never understood why some one would want one. When my neighbor got one my father and I just mocked him constantly.
