About six weeks ago, we featured artist Jeremy Dean and his rather unusual work of art, a horse carriage made from a Hummer H2.

After months of hard work and painstaking labor, Dean finally took his ‘Futurama’ ride out for a leisurely stroll around Central Park. Pulled by two horses he appropriately called ‘Duke and Diesel’, Dean certainly drew a lot of attention for himself and his SUV-inspired horse carriage.

Continued after the jump.

Dean set out to build this carriage because he wanted to emphasize a world where the dependence on natural resources would come to pass rendering all those high-powered, gas-guzzling vehicles entirely obsolete. He uses his ‘Futuruma’ ride to illustrate a lifestyle of independence from the world’s resources so if and when the time comes where our resources have come to pass, Dean is fully-equipped to handle the situation.

Besides, when you’re trying to figure out what to do with an SUV that has no other purpose any more, maybe you can draw inspiration from this man who seemingly had the foresight to do something cool with one without even having to use a drop of fuel to enjoy his ride.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

No guys, I think they are just giving the old vehicle a recognition. I think there’s nothing wrong with that.

Pathetic. They just messed up the car. If they couldn’t afford to maintain the car, they shouldn’t have made themselves a laughing stock. I wonder though on why Hummer is not making any hybrid or electric Hummer.

What the hell is that? They just messed up the H2, I really don’t know why GM can’t replace the h2’s engine with a fuel that is an efficient one.
