Hummer sales are plummeting all over the country. In the past year alone, eight Hummer dealerships have closed down, that’s an 5% decline in dealerships. And just the other day, Chop closed his doors. That’s right, The King of Cars, Dan Towbin, is out of the Hummer business. Apparently, he says he’s going to start selling Smart Cars and Vespas next year along side various mid-sized luxury cars. Can you image Chop selling Vespas?
Towbin’s known as a Las Vegas personality and Hummer enthusiast. He says the Hummer and Vegas are connected. “It’s all about bling and it’s in the desert,” he said. “I feel very aligned with the brand, neither General Motors nor I wanted to go this way.”
I just can’t picture The King of Car’s rapping about a Smart Fortwo. Can you?
