A wartime icon made famous during the Gulf War. A tremendous machine capable of traversing the most treacherous terrain. A menacing beast that inspired the civilian Hummer H1. This is the AM General M998 Humvee. Today I get to experience this mighty machine, explore its unique features, and recount its fascinating history. Then we make a quick stop at the American Military Museum in El Monte, California, to check out their huge collection of retired military vehicles. Come join me!

Big thanks to Turo for picking up the tab for this rental. I was already a huge fan of their service, having rented an Audi, Jeep, and Alfa through them in the past. I even rented out my Toyota truck on their service for a while. Give them a try—use my referral link and get $25 off your first rental: https://helloroad.tv/turo
