|Here's something DaimlerChrysler execs have been wishing for...|
It's almost too good to believe - a 20-year old Jeep coming to the rescue of a brand new Hummer H2. It all happened at Camp Jeep 2004 -and there are photos and video to prove it. Here's a snippet:
This is just one of those moments you are glad you have a camera with you. I was in Virginia at Camp Jeep during July 15-17th. As many of you know, to attend Camp Jeep you must own a Jeep and drive it in to the event. As large as it has become during the last few years, vendors are starting to appear on the road going into the event. I had stopped at one of the vendor tents on the road leading into the event. I was in the tent looking around when out of the corner of my eye I saw a Hummer H2 pull up into the parking lot. Mind you, there were probably 20 jeeps of various types in the parking lot and a Hummer pulling into the parking lot is probably not the most welcome there. It would be like going to a Harley Davidson rally and stopping at a bar full of Harley owners on a Yamaha rice rocket.
Well, I just happened to see the front passenger tire of the H2 spinning freely. I just assumed someone was just messing around and having fun. After looking closer, the owner had proudly pulled up his Hummer over a small tree stump in the yard.And upon trying to leave, found himself "stumped" with a problem. He had hung the frame of the H2 on the stump. The stump probably could not have been over 12" total height from the level gravel only 2-3 feet away.
It gets even better when you recall an article posted on this site on 8/3/04 in which Gary White, GM vice president in charge of fullsize trucks, said, "It would be a cold day in hell before we had a Hummer that was not capable". Hmmmm.
This is a must see for all Jeep lovers. Check it out here.
