Ready This Storm Trooper is Not
No fleet of project cars is complete without a Storm Trooper! In its stock condition it may very well fall prey to any variety of Jedi Mind Tricks but with a few customizations, it will be ready to beat down anything Force.
Although the last Hummer H3 made its way down the assembly line at the Shreveport, Louisiana plant on May 24, 2010, its iconic soldier-boy design continues to make it one of the most easily recognizable vehicles on the road. Model year 2008 came with a new front bumper design, new distinctive Hummer front grille insert, new protective front skid plate and a new finish on the standard 7.5 x 16-inch alloy wheels.
The Hummer H3 is powered by the GM Vortec 3.7 litre, inline five-cylinder engine which delivers 180 kW (244 hp) at 5,600 rpm and 328 Nm of torque at 4,600 rpm. The H3 offered, as the first Hummer ever, the choice of a manual or an automatic transmission.
