Hopefully Only The Domestic Model And Not The Military Model
I used to make the domestic Hummer Class-A body Panels. They were a pain in the ass. They didn't make the military version in the same plant. Outsourcing the domestic Hummer brand isn't really a big deal, except to the poor bastards in Shrevport Louisiana where the vehicle was assembled. Exporting the military version would be a whole different matter.
"Tuesday, GM struck a tentative deal to sell its Hummer brand to a Chinese manufacturer, while also revealing that it has potential buyers for its Saturn and Saab brands. The brand would go to Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Co. of China, said a person briefed on the deal."
