There was an odd side effect of the first Gulf War in the early Nineties. The US Army’s standard-issue vehicle, the Humvee, featured heavily in the wall-to-wall TV news coverage which prompted so many people to ask the manufacturer, AM General, for one that they put a civilian version into production.
As a car, the Hummer was pretty useless. Even in America, it was too big, the interior was tiny and it was desperately slow. But it was absolutely unstoppable and tougher than a concrete bunker.
Hummer thought the best way illustrating this was perching it atop of pile of scrap cars. Maybe it flattened them after breaking the crusher.
Unbelievably, a few H1s found their way to the UK, one of which is currently on the market for £50,000.
