Who buys the gas version of the H1? You spend 75k and don't check the $3000 option for the diesel?

He should've simply tried. I think he actually went backwards with his aero mods...

He's doing a whole series on living with a Hummer. He bought the gas version because the diesel engines tend to fail catastrophically.

Last week he took it to a race track. That was entertaining. I Raced My Hummer On An Actual Race Track

He also imported an R32 GTR from Japan, right hand drive.

Yep, same shtick, which I find entertaining, until it become too predictable.
