For the combined metal content of these 2 wrecked specimens, I'm sure a whole quarter of the Queen Elizabeth-II cruise ship could be built

Whats that truck that has done so much to the big Humvee, is it Dodge RAM ? Never thought Humvee could be messed with so much by any other vehicle.

The Pick-up truck looks less damaged, considering the impact with H2..!

I'm sure there's also a plane which directly hit the Hummer, but just can't be seen in the shot.

The Ram looks to be the heavy duty version, with the roof mounted lights and the twin rear tyres. Thats a behemoth too!

Guys, the H2 is not a Humvee, but just a Humvee look alike .. [been discussed earlier, here].

But that was some crash.

This picture is used all over the web to show that a Hummer isnt tough. I believe any vehicle hit at three digit speeds head on would fall to pieces!

Sure the pick up is stronger. But it cant go over terrain like a Hummer can. can it?
