Doug DeMuro Buys a PT Cruiser to Park His Hummer On

Doug DeMuro Buys a PT Cruiser to Park His Hummer On

The Internet’s favorite ex-Ferrari owner and car guy Doug DeMuro has bought another car. But rather than another Ferrari like his 360 Modena, he bought a 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser. While there’s not many reasons why anyone should buy a PT Cruiser, Doug’s reasoning is pretty solid. He’s going to crush it with his Hummer H1 – the vehicle he really bought.

Before all the metal crushing takes place, he gives the PT an honest review – but with a twist. Anything that needs fixing or improvement gets immediate attention. The updates come by both a paintbrush and a hammer. You’ll get the idea as you watch.

Finally the time comes for the smashing conclusion. Turns out Doug and his friends have to buy a second car, a lovely Saturn sedan, to act as the other half of his Hummer ramp. Without spoiling the video, the destruction is somehow satisfying to watch. The breaking glass and crunching metal is viewed from multiple angles and with plenty of sound. It’s a fitting use for a car that was already hobbling on its last leg. Thanks for the entertainment, Doug.

2009 Hummer H2 SUT 6-Wheeler

2009 Hummer H2 SUT 6-Wheeler

Well, Mercedes-Benz did it with the G-Wagon, so why not modify a Hummer H2 SUT with an extra axle, two extra wheels, and an extra-long bed to cover it all? Yep, extra, or perhaps excess are the operative words. This massive beast actually for sale in the everything-is-bigger state of Texas for an equally large $98,950.

The vehicle started life as a standard H2 SUT with its Chevy Avalanche-like removable mid-gate and fold-flat second row. The one and only owner traded in the Hummer just before an unnamed “custom outfitter/limo company” purchased the truck. That company completed all the modifications to the frame, suspension, and body, along with the military-spec “Flat Dark Earth” paint color and custom interior job.

Now this H2 SUT six-wheeler is for sale and all it takes is green money. The seller says the vehicle has a clean record and only sports 27,000 miles. Of course with it being a Hummer, it comes with GM’s 6.2-liter V-8 and six-speed automatic transmission. Sadly however, the new rear axle is just for show and doesn’t get power from the engine. The H2 still has its trusty four-wheel-drive system for getting through the rough stuff though.

Hummer H2 by CFC

Hummer’s days as America’s monster machine may be numbered, but it doesn’t mean that people will stop tinkering with it. After all, it is one of those rare vehicles that seems to have grown quite a cult following in the US.

So what if the Hummer is a brand with no future? The truth is, cars like the H2 will always be an image of masculinity, a car that will always be given special attention. So, while GM has in fact announced that Hummer is effectively on its death bed, CFC company has nonetheless revealed a very cool tuning kit for the H2.

As part of CFC’s kit, the Hummer’s bonnet is covered in a black carbon film while the side and rear windows are draped with CutLine ThermoTec. There are also 28" TunerShop light-alloy and LSD wing doors.

Video: Modified Hummer goes for a swim underwater

Don’t you just love it when your car can do something other cars can only dream about doing, like, say, drive underwater?

This particular modified Hummer put its ‘swimming’ skills to the test as it drove head on into a river, completely submerging itself in the process. At one point, you can’t even see the Hummer, except for the exhaust sticking out like a snorkeling tube.

We’re pretty sure that his Hummer will come in pretty handy, especially during the wet weather season when floods begin to occur regularly.

Now if only there was a way to have more cars be able to drive effortlessly underwater.

Hummer HB concept car

Hummer HB concept car

Have you even wondered how the Hummer of the future will look like? One thing is for sure: it needs to go smaller and to be more fuel efficient. This is why Andrus Ciprian designed the HB concept - an extreme off-road vehicle with almost no front or rear overhangs, and massive wheels and tires for tackling almost any surface.

The Hummer HB features an all-aluminium chassis, with carbon fieber being the main material for the body. It is powered by a V6 engine which is biofuel capable. Power is sent to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.

The HB can be offered in two different versions: one would be equipped with a smaller windscreen split into three sections, and an array of cameras around the vehicle which relay video to screens around the driver and the second one is fitted with a more conventional single frame windscreen and is designed more for the serious off-roader with additional lighting mounted on the roof.

2008 Hummer H2 E85

2008 Hummer H2 E85

From the ’Better Late Than Never’ file, Hummer unveiled today a version of the H2 that runs on E85 ethanol fuel. The car brand known for being a fuel hog is getting greener. The H2 can actually run solely on E85 ethanol, gasoline or any combination of the two fuels. Other GM flex-fuel vehicles currently on the road are only able to run up to 85 percent ethanol (E85).

The latest developments that have enabled the H2 to run on E85 ethanol are being carried on to other vehicles in the Hummer line. The H3 will become E85 capable later in 2009. A four-cylinder turbo diesel engine is also being developed for the H3.

Hummer to feature biofuel capability by the end of 2010

GM announced that by the end of 2010 all the Hummer vehicles will feature biofuel capability. Recently a dealership called Classic Chevrolet / Hummer opened public biofuel pumps and GM revealed a 2009 H2 SUT, which was E85 capable, described by the public who first saw it, as a derivate of the HX concept.

The biofuel station called Classic Clean Fuels, located in Dallas, Texas, offers biofuel at nine dedicated pumps which cost over $500,000. The dealership announced that it will deliver E85 capable vehicles with an extra tank of E85 . “We sell a lot of trucks capable of running on alternative fuels like E85, and even though there has been some increased availability, we saw a need for more E85 pumps where drivers could fill up” said Charles Martin, general manager at Classic Chevrolet / Hummer.
