What the heck has the Mini done for the French military...Oh nothin since the French military has done absolutely nothing either.
Agreed that the Hummer is an American icon even if it's (road going version) no longer in production. I've always been a small/light car fan but watching those hummers last year was beautiful, I really hope Robby gets a good fair run this time around.
Got to say but; what does the Mini have to do with the French military? It's made in the UK and owned by the Germans.
