desperate hummer h3 prices still too high

With things, erm, being as they are right now (economy in the toilet, SUVs being hugely unpopular, nobody buying cars, GM on the verge of evaporating and floating to China), Hummers are about as desirable as herpes. Although the Red Tag sale price of the H3 5-cylinder is floating around $26,000, there’s still a sub-basement. Some highlights from around the sales (or no sales) on FleaBay, Swapalease, and AutoTrader:

—2009 Hummer H3 – $22,985.00 – 13 miles – Optimistically want a 100% cash payment. eBay Motors

–2008 Hummer H3 Alpha – V8 engine – $34,900 – 1854 miles – Oh come on. eBay Motors

–2008 Hummer H3 – $322/month – 4000 miles so far, 30 months remaining, 28500 miles remaining. Swapalease

–2008 Hummer H3 – $18,717 – 15,048 miles – Listed as new – might never have been titled. Autotrader

–2008 Hummer H3 – $22,291 – 4143 miles – stick shift is actually marginally cool. Autotrader

–2009 Hummer H3 – $21,995 – Brand new – classic “one at this price.” Team Chevrolet Hummer, Pasadena

You can go to Hong Kong and buy a Bentley Continental, with all the extras, used one year, for USD 18.000 Sounds suspiciously like the $50 Rolexes they sell in Hong Kong, too. It does, doesn't it? But the poor man had luxury cars up his shiatsu, and just had to get rid of inventory. Totally legit. Looked like a car collector's paradise.

    RedStapler: "I’ll bet the wannabe H2 and H3s will actually have collectors appeal a 10-20 years down the line. Just as the 20ft long tail fin V8 Caddys captured the zeitgeist of the 50s they were all about the ez-credit go-go mid 2000s."More like collecting leftover 1964 Studebakers, which don't seem to have anywhere near the caché of the Caddy, even the avante garde Avanti. Ironically, during the brief height of Hummer popularity, GM was considering creating another spin-off Hummer brand. At the time, since the H2 still being built by AM General near South Bend, Studebaker was actually a name being tossed around for the new marque.

    New for $22K! LOL. The reason for Hummer hate given by owners is often people are jealous because they cannot afford one. It was always a bogus argument, but now it's just funny. By the time Hummers are collectors items, gas will cost $30/gallon, everyone will be driving small electric cars made of carbon fiber, and vehicles the size of Hummers won't be legal to drive without a commercial driver license. Even then the only Hummer worth collecting will be an H1.

You can go to Hong Kong and buy a Bentley Continental, with all the extras, used one year, for USD 18.000 CNN had a report from a luxury car reseller who had a parking garage full of automotive excellence waiting for excellent cash - and he wasn’t offering firesale prices, these were earthquake quotes. Rolls Royce, dozens of Astons, Bentleys — and cheap. I speak chinese. Let me know where this nice gentleman lives.
