Now we know why the Chinese government discouraged Tenzhong from buying Hummer: Waste of money. Chinese can build Hummers themselves. For $650. The man in the picture is living proof.

Carnewschina has it that Qu Zhibo from Zhigong on the Chinese island of Hainan built his own Hummer. Maybe not as big as a real Hummer, but starting small and thinking big is the Chinese way. Says Carnewschina:

“Instead he built his Hummer himself, completely from scrap, with a small tractor engine that drives the rear wheels. Qu’s Hummer is 2 meters long and 1.5 meters high. The building process took three long years and 4000 yuan, that is 630 US dollar. Lotta time and a lotta money, but Qu got it.”
