Is that a Hummer??

The most annoying comment we get from friends and strangers who ask about the Jeep! It's become a private joke now though...

Yeah I just got mine last week and a friend commented on how cool it was that it almost looks like a Hummer.

Being yellow I've heard it.
I tell them it is a Hummer Recovery Vehicle.
Then give them the HI SIGN

One of the first things my neighbor said to me the minute I pulled into my driveway after picking my JK up from the dealer: "It looks like a Hummer!"

Felt my blood pressure spike.

Yup, pretty much immediately got the same response. I really like that I got the hummer look for less. I am going to get that new hood add on that will make it more like it. I am going to see if the dealership will order me some of the Original H3 stickers for it too.

Yeah right after we got it our IT guy commented "those things are cute, like a baby hummer". Really doesn't bother me though.

I once read a guy said he parked next to an H2. The owner got out and said "oh a poor man's Hummer". Now that would really make you . I thought of a great comeback in case it ever happened to me.

No you bought a poor man's hummer, this is a REAL Jeep.

Couple of my GF's friends have made the "looks like a cute little hummer" comment, didnt bother me.

What did was when my neighbors 8 year old was playing in the back of my Jeep in the driveway and an H3 drove by all chromed out and he said,"WOW that guy must be RICH, that's the coolest truck ever!" I asked him what he thought my Jeep cost and he said "Two thousand dollars?" I know he's only 8, I'll make sure I take him out with me next time I go wheelin and make a fan out of him.

I got the "poor man Hummer" from my buddy & his family. I laughed at them. I see people on public assistance that drive Escalade's-and they drive a Durango. They are still bent over the Rubicon cops calling their vehicle a "mini-van". Now THAT was Priceless.

I have had the "Baby Hummer" comment and I am tempted to repeat the bumper sticker I saw recently "If I wanted a hummer, I would have asked your sister".

Just waiting for the next comment.

I don't get the Hummer hatred, but did get a comment that brought a smile to my face recently, "That's what a Hummer wishes it was"

I freakin wore out an H1 while in the Army.... they actually retired it when we got back from Iraq (the easy one).... it was cool but I still like my Jeep better than anything else that I have owned. My dad bought one of the H3s several years back and I have never been a fan. Would rather drive the wife's Tahoe... he sold the hummer and bought a 2dr jeep... I wish I had taken it off his hands when he sold it...

My favorite comment is when you have the doors off and someone ask "Does it come like that?"

I get guys in hummers staring at me as I drive by all the time. I cant imagine what is going through their minds - the regret must be horrible.

Heh, I work for GMAC mortgage, so there's a fair share of H3's in the parking lot. There's also a group of three or four Jeeps (mine included) that all park in a row when we come in every day. '

Can't wait to find out if my personal plates get approved:

NADAHMR

That'll go over well
