The SUV that made a name for itself for being one of the most intimidating of any vehicle on the road is going out in a whimper. The last Hummer H3 - and the very last Hummer for that matter - rolled out of General Motors’ production facility in Shreveport, Louisiana last Monday, culminating the official end of one of America’s most iconic SUVs.
The last H3 was ordered by rental car agency Avis, which if we were these guys, we actually won’t rent out because of the "history" attached to it for being the very last Hummer ever built. Who knows, the SUV might fetch a pretty good price in the coming years.
Whatever Avis does with it though, is their business. More important to us is Hummer’s quiet curtain call. The irony is definitely intoxicating.
Before General Motors officially winds down Hummer, one dealership is making sure that they can sell every last stock of their Hummers by offering prospective customers a deal that, quite frankly, is too good to pass up.
You might remember St. Louis-based Lynch Hummer dealership, which made the news last year for selling guns in their Hummer dealership to compensate for the less-than-stellar sales numbers of their Hummers. Well now that the SUVs are on their last run, the dealership is throwing in a free shotgun for every Hummer purchase.
You can’t say these guys have no eye towards cross promotion, can you?
The free shotgun is a Browning Citori White Lightning and it costs around $2,000. Prospective Hummer buyers will receive this shotgun absolutely free-of-charge, although they’re still required to file the necessary paperwork to apply for a gun license.
But if you fancy on becoming a shotgun-toting, Hummer-driving bad ass, you can kill two birds with one stone by going to the Lynch Hummer dealership in St. Louis.
