Talking Rolled over mountain dew hummer

HEHEHEHE
YEs I was on my way to Kittery Maine when
going South bound was a flat bed truck
with a black hum V on it. It was totaled
You could tell it had been rolled over at least once. I didn't think it was possible to do that. My little bro was in the car and
wondered did BUSTA RYHMS do that.

I don't know if a rolled over, mashed up car is funny. But you might.

Actually, when the Hummer was initially introduced to the Military there was a rash of roll-over incidents. Seems it had something to do with the fully independent suspension and lack of any roll bars whatsoever. The vehicles were designed with offroad driving in mind, not highway speeds and quick transitions on pavement.

If you drive a hummer hard into a corner on pavement, you will get a ton of weight transfer (literally a ton) which can cause loss of control and a roll over. The military subsequently released a training video in an attempt to 'train' its personnel. In the video they had the Hummer on two wheels going through corners several times. It wasn't even that hard to do...

Ha! I'm actually looking to buy that exact Hummer. The guys who drive it out of Merrimack, NH rolled the thing four times. Their promotions business is right next to my father's photography studio and he told me the thing might be for sale. Depending on the damage, I may be interested in picking it up if it's just cosmetic.
