Hummer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (951 words)
Hummers were traditionally built by AM General Corporation, formerly the heavy industries division of American Motors, in its Mishawaka, Indiana assembly plant.
In 1990, two matching white Hummers were driven from London, UK to Beijing, People's Republic of China over the rough roads of the central Soviet Union.
The Hummers made the drive with ease, and highlights of this journey were broadcast on ESPN in the United States.
