Hummer News

Arnold Schwarzenegger Hummer H2
I’ve never given much credence to the Drudge Report — and still don’t. Here’s why: A recent blog post by Carla Marinucci on SFGate.com questions a recent article linked on Drudge that claimed Arnold Schwarzenegger was turning a new GREEN leaf and getting rid of his 4 Hummers. The article claimed Schwarzenegger “has ditched his beloved $950,000 fleet of Hummer cars in a bid to save the environment.” It noted that the former “Terminator” “is devoted to the sport utility vehicles for their “precision,” and let’s face it, their macho appeal. But this week, with Attorney General Bill Lockyer announced he was suing six major auto manufacturers — Toyota, Nissan, Ford, Honda, Chrysler and General Motors over greenhouse gas emissions, that was the catalyst in the Hummer-dumping, the item said, adding “ex-movie star Schwarzenegger felt it was prudent to make the change.” Arnold still has 4 Hummers — three registered in California and one in Idaho — and a source close to the governor has treated the article as a joke. Its also no surpise that some of the UK Tabloids are publishing the matter as truth.
