For Sale: CNN Hummer
Are you looking for that kind of vehicle which you might just be very proud of? Are you looking for that kind of vehicle which people could really recognize with just a simple look at it?
Sure, you may not be able to use your favorite Volkswagen auto parts for this one. After all, it is the Hummer that CNN has been working for its various duties.
CNN would be selling its Hummer for charity’s sake. This would be done at the No Reserve as part of the 36th Annual Barrett Jackson Collector Car Event. If you are interested, this event would be happening on the 13th of January up until the 21st of the same month.
The CNN Hummer has gone through various reports and through different areas. It has gone through the war in Iraq and has gone through the “Overhaulin’ ” stuff with Chip Foose and the rest of his crew as part of the Learning Channel. And did you know that this Hummer from CNN has got a name of its own? Yes, it has been lovingly dubbed as the Warrior One and it is a custom sport utility vehicle.
As the president of the Barrett Jackson Auction Company, Craig Jackson reflects, “The CNN Hummer will be one of the most history, inspiring vehicles to ever cross the block at a Barrett Jackson auction. This machine served with America’s brave soldiers in Iraq, and now it will help fund an amazing organization that supports the families of wounded soldiers. The future owner of this Hummer will capture a commemorative gem to add to their automotive collection.”
Before the war in Iraq, officials from CNN bought this Hummer in Kuwait. Then, the Hummer was later on used in various scoops and reports in different parts of the world. Correspondents, photojournalists, and producers from the station used Warrior One to do their reports and go from one place to another while being part of American soldiers’ vehicles. However, it was not only used as a means of transportation. The Hummer also served as living quarters and even as a storage for the crew of CNN.
