The Hummer of Charnwood. Images of Canberra

By johnboy - 29 April 2011 32

Charnwood Hummer

Owen has sent this in with the following note:

Photograph taken at the back of the Charnwood shops, and on the back of the vehicle are the words, “3.9 tonnes of pure muscle”

Google tells me ( while looking for the price of the beast ) they went out of production last year. This fellow is in first class condition.

Black? I thought these things only came in

– Oops I just backed over my kids red

Out communing with nature (just don’t ask too many questions about how they got there. What? No! No! That’s not my Land Cruiser parked over there).

It the mountain bike over here.

I just looked up ACT rego’s website. If it is 3.9 tonnes then it seems that they pay $1194.40 rego (not counting any additional cost for the rego plate). Doesn’t seem anywhere near enough to me. They should be taxed off the road – especially since they don’t seem to serve any purpose.

In America apparently you can buy bumper stickers that are along the lines of:

When you’re finished lookin’ at ma truck, come around the back and you can check out ma small willy”

Do you think they mean a Hummer owner invariably has a Jeep as well?

Waddayareckon p1 . . . it’s conspicuously free of retrieval points, innit?

I don’t think that’s because it doesn’t need them.

I’ve seen one with tow points. Pretty sure they were plastic.

Tow points or no, I’m certainly not bloody towing that thing with my car.

I wonder where they stole it from?

No bullbar, highway tyres, a helicopter-like thirst for fuel, oh yeah, the ultimate off road vehicle.

In the US they rent out bright yellow ones from JFK airport, a very appropriate environment for them.

I have footage — on a DVD at home — of one of these out ‘wheeling’ with a couple of (not entirely standard) Jeep TJ Wranglers and Toymotor Land Cruisers in East Gippsland (where it can get a bit, er, damp and the trails a bit, um, ‘slick’). At one point that Hummer became nothing more than a 3.9 tonne bobsleigh down a descent as it’s ego wrote the cheque its ability was never, ever going to be able to cash. Lucky it stayed in the ruts. Could have used a scrub chain to slow it up a bit.

Driving a vehicle like that would make me feel less secure about my masculinity.

Hummer H2 . . . an Isuzu ute in a party frock. I know what it’s 3.9 tonnes of (and it ain’t muscle).
