Hummer is expected to close by the end of this month if a buyer does not emerge.
I know it's bad to gloat, but the Hummer has always struck me as a perfect encapsulation of just about everything that's been wrong with North American transportation.

Let me hear an AMEN!
It heartens me to see one maker of Suburban Assault Vehicles thrown on the scrap-heap of disastrous ideas.
The cited NYT article does not support the quotation ascribed to it.
If it could fly and go to space and had some kind of futuristic casimir engine and could plumb the depths of the ocean it would be cool.
Why report this as a news article and reference a Times article that does not support the claim? Even the credited "the daily score" offers 0 references,
While GM may quit Hummer production, there is nothing in your article that supports that claim.. Pleas do not turn this site into the myriad of others that uses fear or false claims to gain support...
The italicized piece is not a direct quote, but a piece of information "gleaned" by the author from reading the NYT's article. Not sure, however, where his specific information comes from.

I recently saw a news article on TV profiling a Vegas Hummer dealership that is closing and opening a Smart Car Dealership.
