I haven't seen prices for a while but think the original Hummer costs about
$30,000 more than the H2. They are very different vehicles. /jim

I once had to photograph an accident between a 1st generation Hummer and a
Jeep.  The Jeep had a bent front bumper, the Jummer had over $3000 damage
to the front of the vehicle.  They were supposedly traveling at about 35-40
mph (that's not very fast in kph)toward each other as they rounded the
curve.
