The Hummer Mystique
Photograph by Sarah Leen

"This is my everyday vehicle," says this Hummer lover, who puts 40,000 miles (60,000 kilometers) a year on her H1 running errands that include a fast-food stop for lunch near her bicycle shop in an Atlanta, Georgia, suburb. Two years ago she bought the Hummer as a cool, outdoor come-on for the business. "Everyone's reaction is still, Wow! she says. "A lot of people want to sit in it." With two small children, she also likes the safety that such a big vehicle offers. The price? $110,000, plus $60 of diesel every three or four days—worth every cent, as far as Linda is concerned.
