The rumor mill is spitting out the news that GM has sold the Hummer brand to the Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Company Ltd., based in Chengdu.
So the first of GM's divisions goes to China.
Is this a smart move?
Hummer's sales are down 67 percent  in 2009 and fell 51 percent last year. (The auto industry's worst drop)

what's the PRC gonna do with the gas guzzler...

the PRC is already announced that by 2012 all cars must be able & capable of 45mpg or more but no less, which is a stricter rugulation than the US itself under the allnew obama administration guideline  

*just dont tell me the PRC is plan to export back the gas guzzlers to america at a lower cost
