GM closed Hummer the day they bought it (the name, that is). This is
only the final admission that they had no concept of what the original
(and ONLY) Hummer, basically a civilian version of the HMMWV, was, or
what it meant to the owners.
They continually tried to fit a square peg into a round hole, with the
idea that it was a potential mass-market vehicle, when in fact it was
an exotic with little or no appeal to most.
It is not surprising that they failed so miserably at what they
did--but let's face it: GM has had years and years of destroying those
companies and product lines it accquired.
