Pimp Iraqis' Rides

With GM ordered to restructure within 60 days, its Hummer brand may be all but dead. Who wants to tell the Iraqis? The New York Times reports on “Al Sultan for Trading Cars,” a Baghdad car dealership specializing in Hummers. “Iraqis love them because they’re really a symbol of power,” says Ali al-Hilli, who runs the dealership. He has so far sold over 20 H3s, or about one every ten days. “In Iraq, people judge you by your car, and you’re not a man without one,” says al-Hilli.
