My Hummer Experiences

August 16, 2003 will long be remembered as the day I got to take my first drive in a military Hummer.
My new friend, Ken, from Auto Dynamics Collision on the eastside of Indianapolis showed me the rig, let me take a short drive in it and then graciously took me on a tour of Auto Dynamics, a first-class, super high-tech auto rebuild center.
Now on to the Hummer...

This Hummer with Serial #107117 probably has some history behind it.
Doubtful it has seen any overseas duty, but this Hummer has seen plenty of state-side responsibilities, I'm sure.
As Ken explained, after its military tour of duty, it was used by a sheriff's department within the State of Indiana.
Today's Hummer is recognized world-wide with much of the credit going to two major conflicts.  Just as its predecessor's image, the Jeep, the Hummer stands as a symbol of ingenuity, freedom, might and the American way!
