  2. Tutan Camon says:

    Nice job,nice stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think if someone likes a car – he can do it himself

  4. Jewels Vern says:

    A Hummer is not a Humvee. No resemblance.

    • Pom2Ter says:

      No resemblance??? You mean beside the fact they clearly picked a name that is almost the same and gave it the same look and style just to fool people into thinking they are buying the same truck. But no resemblance… A hummer and a humvee don’t look alike because General Motor clearly wanted to copy the look of a toaster when they made it… The hummer is just a cheap GM lookalike copy of a military car made for people that want to feel like GI JOE and fill an inferiority complex…

      • Jewels Vern says:

        The only resemblance is the flat windows.

      • Nelson says:

        Oh my… besides all your jealousy….

        The Hummer and Humvee looks almost the same, don’t know wtf you are talking about. You are talking a lot of bullshit about these twins, which are hard to beat by a factory off road vehicle.

        regarding the work, can’t be mistaken for the original, but nonetheless nicely done. Now put a real Humvee and the chinese copy right next to this GAZVEE!

        • Darius says:

          You both are right. The H1 was based on Humvee. The H2 and H3 are nothing like Humvee. They just made it to look from outside as boxy as H1 and Humvee.

          “In 1998, General Motors (GM) purchased the brand name and marketed three vehicles: the original Hummer H1, based on the military Humvee, as well as the H2 and H3 models that were based on smaller, civilian-market GM platforms.”

    Humvee knock-off. Well done!

  6. Muzzlehatch says:

    If he had converted a Hummer into a GAZ 66, that would have been something!

  7. Taroman says:

    Well done!
    Great idea, executed brilliantly.
    Probably a better truck than the original!

  8. OldBikr says:

    I do not know why anyone thinks the Humvee is special. The work this person did is excellent, so good in fact, he could have built something even better looking/running than a Humvee!

  9. Pom2Ter says:

    You guys do know that an AM General HMMWV (Humvee) is a quarter million $ US armoured military truck right? you are probably talking about a General Motors hummer because there is no way in hell that rust bucket assembled in a shed can be better than a multi million dollars in R&D project made for the military… Come on people use your brain for a minute… It’s not that hard to figure out that a guy using parts from a graveyard in a shed with a blowtorch to assemble them together will never match a military project that’s been spent tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars into…

    • tom bauer says:

      seriously? HMMVEE, the real ones are junk. crap engine with many problems, not armored until to late, plastic fuel tank underneath completely unprotected. defrost system hardly worked. the US govt got took!

    • Nelson says:

      funny that you talk about using brains, when thats what your comments seriously lack of.

      You are missing the intentiions of this work and try to troll people, why is that. In other comments you don’t even seem to know what a hummer is.

      • Pom2Ter says:

        You know that beside the Hummer H1 (who by the way beside the frame and the look shares very little with the Humvee since the engines and drivetrains are different) the H2 and H3 aren’t in any way related to any humvees ever made… I think you are the one that knows nothing about Humvees.

    • Oscar Goldman says:

      According to US Army vets, the Humvee was a total rip off. And deadly… Small wonder why the US ows trillions today.

      • Pom2Ter says:

        I’m French, I don’t really care about the US debt but for you to think the humvee as a relation with their deficit you really seem like the kind of person they should trust with their investments…

        • Oscar Goldman says:

          I didn’t call the Humvee a rip off. US Vets did while they were active in Iraq since 2003, and realized their armored cars weren’t armored… It took a lot of additional cash (and shattered lives) to upgrade them.

          • Pom2Ter says:

            I wasn’t talking about that part genius… I was talking about the part where you made the connection between the humvee and the debt of the United States… Where you clearly say: “Small wonder why the US ows trillions today.”

            • Oscar Goldman says:

              @Pom2Ter: LOL. Please check the cost of the U.S. 10 year “search” of WMD’S in Iraq. And the U.S. Military budget each year. The cost of the F-35, the Zumwalt ship… The Humvee additional over-charges after failure is just a simple example. Red again if you still want to replay “something”.

              • Pom2Ter says:

                @Oscar Goldman: I know about all these.
                The crazy cost of just dropping 1 bomb (Let alone a bombing run from a B52) + the cost of the actual bomb itself… after fuel and logistics. Or the amount of cash lost to buy out information from Tribe leaders by the CIA about Al Qaeda positions and other intel… I read took some time to read from what came out of wikileak… I was not talking about all these things since what you were talking about in this particular case was the cost of the humvee itself. Next time mention these in the conversation when you explain why the US owe trillions of $ in debt if you want to talk about those from the beginning…

                • Asmodeus says:

                  Pom2Ter, do want to buy one Humvee? Before or after it’s armor upgrade? Otherwise, your postings are just troll nonsense.

                • Oscar Goldman says:

                  “you made the connection between the humvee and the debt of the United States”. Yes, I explained in this thread how you can lose (and ow) trillions upgrading already expensive military equipment that didijn’t quite work as expected…. If you still can’t make a “connection”, please write some more. It’s getting fun to help you out.

                • No Mame says:

                  Pom2Ter, Next time, please insist even MORE about a point that was already explained pretty well from the beginning… You’re becoming a kind of entertainment here!

  10. Ivan says:

    I don’t care if it’s a copy or not… IT LOOKS GREAT!

  11. john says:

    Fantastic job.very cool.

  12. John says:

    Looks excellent. I wouldn’t be surprised if it happened to be better than a real Humvee.
    Like even more rugged for the off-road.

  13. Ivan says:

    The only thing I’d change would be the paint… too green and too bright. Otherwise awesome.

  14. Oscar Goldman says:

    I really need a mechanic like that

  15. Nikolay says:

    In what properties this car better than Gaz-66 or UAZ-469. For what all this work? Gaz-69 looks more cool.
