What It’s Like To Drive A Hummer H1 Through A Flooded City

Texas is inundated with torrential rain and biblical flooding. Roads are turning to rivers and carrying cars off all over the joint. Perfect time to take the ol’ Hummer out for a test drive!

Looks like there’s an outfit in Houston called EVS Motors that sells heavily farkled Hummer H1s as a brand called “Search And Destroy.” The trucks look straight out of a movie set, like some kind of superhero/black-opsmobile for rich guys who want to play solider.

They have three “Tiers” of progressively heavier loadouts but each truck is a rolling shock-and-awe campaign. I have to admit they’re remarkably cool looking.

Anyway, it appears that they’ve taken the Houston floods as an opportunity to test their mettle (“metal” too, I guess) in the kind of extreme environment people who own these trucks must pray for every day.

It’s a little more hardcore than the puddle-splashing DeMuro and I did in Philadelphia last year– at some points the water is well over the hood here.

I’m guessing from the square-orientation that this video was shot for Facebook live, but it’s still a shame they couldn’t get a passenger to hold the camera so it wouldn’t be quite so Cloverfield. Still pretty wild.
