Hummer H3 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hummer H3 SUV is a vehicle from General Motors' Hummer division, introduced in 2006. The H3 is the smallest of the three Hummer models, and though the H3 concept car was a pickup truck, and currently introduced as a conventional SUV, with a future model close to the concept being planned to be launched in the third quarter of 2008. Its GMT345 platform is based on the GMT355 which underpins the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks. The H3 is built at GM's Shreveport, Louisiana factory. Export versions are produced at the General Motors South Africa facility in Struandale, Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
In the American market, the H3 is priced from $29,500 to just over $40,000. Sales have been strong, with the 33,140 sold in 2005 making up 58% of Hummer's total sales for the year. For the first two months of 2006, 8,071 H3s were sold, 74% of all Hummer sales.

The H3 uses the 3.7 L (3653 cc) Atlas straight-5 engine, the same engine that is used in the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks. This 20-valve DOHC unit produces 242 hp (180 kW) at 5600 rpm and 242 ft·lbf (327 N·m) at 2800 rpm. It is available with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission that includes GM's Stabilitrak vehicle stability control. Its 111.9 in (2842 mm) wheelbase is 1.1 in (28 mm) shorter than the GMT360 SUVs.

It includes an electronically-controlled dual-speed transfer case and electronic locking differential. The H3 has full-time four wheel drive, meaning all 4 wheels are permanently powered.

Since it is rated at less than 8500 lb (3856 kg) (GVWR), Hummer is required to provide official fuel economy ratings. Tested by many companies, the Hummer H3 with automatic transmission is targeted at 15mpg, approximately 13 in the city and 18 on the highway. The H3 is also available in manual transmission, 16mpg, with 15 in the city and 19 in the highway. While the Hummer H2 will ford 20 inches (0.5 m) of water, the H3 will handle 24 inches (0.6 m) of water (it has been tested in depths up to 31 inches).

Unless you OWN this vehicle or can show documented evidence that the owner has given you permission, you cannot give up copyright to these pictures because you never had it.

This applies to many other images you have on this site as well, for example the Stanley Cup. Just because someone took their own picture, does not mean that they own the rights to the content.

hey Anonymous i'd just add that your final point IS well taken

"Just because someone took their own picture, does not mean that they own the rights to the content."

if an image is of an thing that is, A. copyrightable and B. copyrighted, say a mural on the side of a buildimg painted after 1923 and with a renewed copyright or a public statue that meets the same criteria, an image taken of that thing would not entitle the photographer to copyright of the image of that thing.
