Hummer go "Bye Bye!"

No, not "Coming Soon:"

Gone away!  The Shreveport Times is reporting this morning that the deal between the Chinks, and GubmitMotors to sell the Hummer Brand has fallen through.

GM spokesman Otie McKinley said the company has begun plans to close the brand. He could give no details about when Hummer will be history.

"We're working on a closing date," McKinley said. "Our main concern right now is winding down operations as smoothly as possible."

The Shreveport GM plant produced the Hummer H3 and H3T, in addition to the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon.

GM suspended production of the H3 and H3T in mid-January. Officials said the company has no plans to shutter the local plant before the June 2012 target date announced last summer.

As a resident of the Shreveport area, I can tell you..."Ouch!  That's gonna leave a mark."

  1. This makes me incredibly sad. While Hummers ain't my cuppa they always make me smile when I see 'em. Prolly coz I KNOW they irritate the hell out of certain people.


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
