This yellow Hummer pickup is said to be the only one in the world that's been equipped with 34-inch Forgiato Finestro wheels. That's probably the second most useless world record after the most snails ever attached to a face or the longest distance traveled on a bicycle while playing the violin (yes, those are real).
This old H2 on donk wheels was one of many special projects Forgiato revealed at the 2014 SEMA show. However, the company says it was way more popular than the Ferraris and Bentleys they had on show, so we decided to give it a second look. And you know what? It's not bad. The interior is a well put together combination of quilted leather and a a killer sound system. As for the wheels… well they're not for everybody, but neither is the Hummer.

For those of you who don't remember it or weren't around back then, the 2005 Hummer Sport Utility Truck was a derivative of the H2 which had its rearmost part chopped. The standard engine was a 6-liter V8 making 325 hp, which sounds very impressive until you realize the 3 ton truck needs 10.7 seconds to reach 60 mph (96 km/h).

General Motors never officially revealed official H2 fuel economy ratings, but most people would consider themselves lucky with 9 mpg (26 l/100km). We're guessing both the fuel economy and the performance have been been affected by the 34-inch wheels. 34 inches… most people don't have televisions that big, right?

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
