How fast were they going? Jeez!!!
That's what vehicles today are supposed to do, from what can be seen the passenger compartment is intact, it's not supposed to be built like a Sherman.

every car or truck out there will look like this after a crash due to new government regualtions about crumple zones. its not just the hummer so lay off.

Probably did.

corvette - You do realize the H2 chassis is basicly a suburban chassis, right?

That definately proves that the crumple zones work, that front end is trashed, but the cab looks to be in almost perfect shape.

The engine compartment on the Hummer is almost gone, with the passenger compartment almost intact. My question is, where is the engine? Is it in the passenger compartment?

The engine in most modern vehicles are designed to be pushed out under the passenger compartment. They still must have been movig at a fair pace to do that much damage.

Why would anyone want a Hummer anyhow? poor gas mileage, insane insurance prices, it takes up the road, its heavy, and to top it all off, the original version had a whopping 148 horsepower (might be 198, can remember).

Plus, its uglier than a mud fence and because of the weight, size, and lack of power, it can only drive on the highway- and it does a lackluster job of that too.

Sorry to all the Hummer fans, my opinion.

If you have to ask, then you'll never understand.
