I'm gonna get me a Hum Veee...(10 posts)

I'm gonna get me a Hum Veee...rwbadley

and not one o' those candy @ssed Hummer II's either.

The incentives for harnessing alternative power have been gutted. The tax breaks for buying the Hummer as a company vehicle are impressive. I figure it'll cost me the same as a Toyota Corolla after the tax the subsidies.

My wife, never an extremely good driver, can now feel safe in a vehicle that will suffer little when she has that 'minor mishap'.

My son the leadfoot, will learn how to control himself and his heavy right foot when he has to cough up $75 for a weeks worth of two mile trips to school and back.

My only question is; do you think I oughta go with the green one or the tan one?

I like that color.Are you getting the H2?
The only downside is going Christmas shopping in Dec. It is hard to find spots in crowded parking lots. You need to find two spots in a row to park. I usually just pull up on the sidewalk and park there.

Years ago you rode the little yellow bus to school. Now you can ride the little yellow bus to work.

did a U-turn on the Fairfax County Parkway this Friday--over the median strip? I'm not making this up. The guy, caught in a row of cars, just went across the grassy median and got back on the road going the opposite direction. Good thing I didn't hit him.

Often I'm driving down the street and I want to change my tire pressure on the fly, but I can't, because I drive a Saturn. If only I had a Hummer.

If you use vegetable oil instead of diesel, it will cost you a fraction of the cost, possibly even free if you can pick up the discarded oil from McDonalds. Plus, it won't pollute! Only the pleasant smell of french fries will come out your tailpipe. If everyone drive vegetable powered Hummers, we'd all be better off, but we'd be hungry all the time.
Great idea...rwbadley

then I can rest assured with the satisfaction of curing two of societies evils at the same time. The disposal of liquid waste into a harmless gas, and cutting down on the rising body mass index of our population...

wait a minute... what day is this? ;-)
Buying the wife something to kill Honda drivers with?Cory

Jeez, Ron, I dunno if buying a larger, stouter vehicle is exactly the right solution for a bad driver. One might suggest improving her skills and concentration... :~)
What's wrong with that? :)No_sprint

Everyone chooses what they drive.
Well, isn't a car something to kill cyclists with? nmDougSloan
