Boston Red Sox versus New York Yankees. Dogs versus Cats. Chocolate versus Vanilla. And Jeeps versus Hummers. As long as there have been civilian Jeeps and Hummers, there's been a rivalry. Often heated! One of the very first tee-shirts All Things Jeep produced was the "Hummer Recovery Vehicle" Tee. It was a best-seller, providing an accurate perspective of the off-road abilities of these two vehicles (as seen through the eyes of a Jeep dude.)
We sold a lot of these tees until the lawyers at GM contacted us one day and told us to stop selling them or else they would "take action". We were just a little Jeep company. We stopped selling them. But that was probably the first and last time Hummer ever bullied Jeep.
We've always enjoyed the debate, the name calling, the mockery. And the jokes about Hummers. Risque enough for us to not print them here! So, in honor of the passing of the Hummer, a small tribute. Hummer, we barely knew you. Which vehicle will Jeep owners hate now?
A lively debate from my friends at the Fun Times Guide.
Jeep versus Hummer
Rip Hummer. Long live JEEP.
