Fast forward… the year is 2011, she is now the alter ego of one Leica, charming fellow. So, yes, I decided to make you this “Hummer Cheat Sheet”..you know, it has been said, if you sit on the driver seat the wrong way she may not start…others even say that before you turn the key in the ignition you have to sing “Lady” by Modjo or else she won’t start. Others have gone ahead to say that she is the remaining descendant of “Bumblebee” from the “Transformers “.
But here she is….my girl..
1. The Hummer does not run or rocket fuel..though she can do zero to 80 kmph in under 10 seconds..she is just fine like that.
2. Her interior is not made of actual leopard skin...at least that's what my lawyer told me to say..
3. due to her unique aerodynamic design, on a good day the hummer can get lift and clear about 3 inches of the ground..yaa Einstein, you were wrong!!!
4. The Hummer does not have a voice activated ignition module..but it wont start if it doesn't like the drivers cologne, height, hair color etc. in short..she doesn't let anyone drive her unless you have shaven head, charming smile, you are a photographer and you occasionally wear glasses..and your middle name is Leica..PERIOD!!
5. On Occasion, she will periodically Show you have a full tank when you only have a drop..forcing you to quench her thirst and throw a tantrum.
that's enough from the world of the Hummer. She can be seen every other day along Mombasa road, Ngong road or any other high way, flying past you Land Rover Vogues and Lexus.....The Hummer baby...
