Artist Converts Hummer Into Horse-Drawn Stagecoach
As a protest to American consumerism, NYC artist Jeremy Dean converted a Hummer H2 into a horse-drawn carriage "to show just how screwed and unsustainable the auto industry has become." Dean believes the gas guzzling SUV is the epitome of everything that is wrong with American consumerism. Whatever your political opinion may be, Dean's conversion is pretty striking.

"'I came up with the idea during the global economic meltdown,' Mr Dean said.
'I thought these hummers are the pinnacle of consumerism and a powerful status symbol, so what will happen when they are no longer sustainable?'
It took Mr Dean and a team of mechanics six weeks to 'decimate' the Hummer H2 and turn it into an engine-less carriage.
The project - called Back To The Futurama - made its public debut in New York's Central Park last month, where the hefty 1,800lb cart was pulled by two white horses named Diesel and Dean."
