Wow, good color.

Is it a 2003 or newer? It looks like the newest style of wheel.

I bought mine in Atlanta.

Thanks!

I'm digging it, too... :mrgreen:

And no, it's a 2000 (they stopped making the HMC4's in '01)... The previous owner spent some serious money on aftermarket "upgrades" (some good, some bad, IMHO :roll: )... anyhow the wheels were upgraded at some point to the 17" 2-piece aluminum's (makes finding new tires a lot easier!!! :mrgreen: )...

The only thing I'm a little apprehensive about is the import inspection... doesn't look like there are any "wide spots" in the exhaust (ie: Catylitic converter, muffler, etc...) Just hope that the inspector does not notice... :|

another "first" today...

was driving down the highway in the right lane at or about the speed limit...

little car passes in the left lane...

brake lights from the little car...

little car slows down, dude in the rear passenger seat takes picture of my truck with the camera on his phone...

little car accelerates again and we both carry on our merry way.

f*ck is this ever a cool truck.

I'm loving it!!!

You are probably in an area where these trucks have never been common. When I first got my truck in 2000, I coouldn't even come to an intersection without virtually every body else around gawking at my truck. Now a days, it is pretty rare that I spot somebody getting an eye full or even offer a word of praise. But, there have always been enough of these trucks here in the Phoenix area that you might see one on a weekly basis. Never owned anything else that gets the attention, regardless.

H1's are definitely not "common" in my neck of the weeds...

prolly only seen maybe 3 or 4 in the last year?

mostly HMCS's and the odd HMCO... haven't seen an HMC4 (other than mine) that I can remember...

It just hit me at the time. That was my immediate reaction when I saw the photo. When the "numbnuts" from the smart car forums find that picture, that will be the criticism they use to add to the public criticism of Hummers. I see them copying it and using it as a graphic example. Otherwise, no problem at all. :lol:

at least you guys in texas have parking stalls that can fit an H1's girth... :D

up here I have to deal with parking lots that have 50% "small car" spaces... that said, the hummer takes up 2 small car spaces quite nicely!!! :twisted:

If they want graphic examples, I will refer them to the crash test video of the "Smart" car. I wont get in one. I think a golf cart is safer than that. Only because golf carts are slower and thus less injury during a crash since they are about the same size.
