Crash course

General Motors has decided to park the ultimate gas guzzler in that big garage in the sky. GM thought its plans to sell Hummer to a Chinese company had the green light, but got run off the road this week by the Chinese government, ironically, over fears of pollution. Enviros who say fuH2 may be cheering, but what will they make fun of now?

UPDATE: The pearly garage doors may not have shut on Hummer quite yet, as two previously shunned suitors have come a-callin’ to GM.
