Hummer H1

Hummer H1

It’s been over a year since the last Hummer rolled out of GM’s production facility , but Cam-Shaft was able to snag one of the remaining off-road monsters for a little virtual makeover. The premium wrapping team in Steinbach were hired by the owner of this H1 to turn the vehicle into a rolling tribute to Call of Duty, a popular first-person and third-person shooter video game series.

This special Hummer H1 was created with the help of co-operation and joint efforts which discussed the project thoroughly before coming up with various sketches (some accepted, some rejected). The final goal was to create a perfect combination illustrating their love for cars and video games.

The H1 was then transformed with a matte black vinyl wrap and various "Call of Duty" logos and inscriptions, as well as other minor styling modifications. In the end, they added a special set of games logo and other styling details and a special set of giant wheels and offroad tires to complete the menacing look.

There are eyesores and then there are EYESORES.

This custom-made Hummer H1 we found on Ebay must have had a cruel -yet extravagantly rich - owner whose sole purpose in purchasing this Hummer was to outfit it with an inordinate number of LCD TVs. How else can we explain this monstrosity of a creation.

On the outside, it looks like the Hummer was butchered and replaced with separate parts from an array of metal sheets that somehow ended up resembling a vehicle. If the vehicle`s exterior isn’t enough to drive you away from this monstrosity, the interior will most definitely will – unless of course you`re a big fan of ostrich leather dashboards and the aforementioned number of LCD TV`s that has somehow turned the interior of this Hummer into one of those military-issued mobile HQ units.

Now, of course, we`re not exactly demanding you to never entertain the thought of buying this car, but if you ever wish to be taken seriously by all of your peers for the rest of your life, use this one and only time to heed our suggestions.

If you browse through the Ebay page of the seller, you`ll notice that he said that over $185,000 were put into this Hummer to make it look like what it is now. But then you`ll also realize that the `Buy it Now` price only rounds up to $89,000 – almost a 100,000 less than how much he spent for it.

We`ll say it again, this is one bargain you`re better off not pursuing.

Every history comes to an end. So is with the car’s life. And 2006 brought with it the demise of a slew of auto models, cars, and trucks that won’t be back on dealers’ lots in 2007, including vehicles of every stripe from exotic supercars to plebeian sedans. Farewell to: Ford GT Ford GT - Many consider the GT the greatest American supercar ever—a product from Ford no less. Reception of the concept version of the vehicle at the 2002 Paris Auto Show convinced Ford to produce the car on a limited basis. (...)

Off-road desert racing is possibly the most grueling form of auto racing in the world. Recognized around the globe by races like the SCORE Baja 1000, “Best in the Desert” (BitD) Racing Association’s 500-mile Vegas to Reno, and the 1400-mile Dakar Rally, it also is the ultimate proving grounds for manufacturers to push production vehicles to their limits.
