click image above to see more pics of Tupac's H1

Like the rapper himself, his accouterments also refuse to die. Tupac's H1 is for sale on eBay, after having been raffled off in a contest on BET, then sold to someone else, then sold or given back to his family, then transferred to his entertainment company, Havenotz Entertainment. And now, their forced liquidation sale is your potential gain.

The 1996 H1 hardtop is remarkably lightly altered, with nothing more than a lightbar, and a couple of Hummer logos and "Eliminator" badges on the rear fenders. The tan interior doesn't look to have a single DVD player or 10-inch LCD in sight. Apparently, bling does know some bounds, and if you can call an H1 'tasteful,' then this is it. The current bid: $200,200. If you just gotta have it, the Buy It Now Price is $500,000 -- which should buy you a nice slice of heaven in Thugs Mansion. Check out the gallery of pics below.

      I'll take an FJ thanks. Seeing as they can do as much/more than any Hummer can, and for WAY less money. Hell, thats the only thing Toyota is good for.

        Taylor: Don't be silly, the FJ is the least capable stock rig between the Jeep Rubicon, Hummer H2/H3, and FJC. The FJC is a great rig, but it has the worst angles and ground clearance of the three. Comparing an FJC to an H1 is just stupid.

        MXRZ: LOL, people who say a vehicle isn't 'real' make me burst out laughing. That's funny, it says HUMMER right on them... Then again, I can't take any offroad discussion seriously from you, you don't seem like a guy who's ever wheeled in his life. The H2 and H3 have better angles and ground clearance than an FJC, so you ARE obviously talking about the H2 and H3... :)

        The H1 has 16 inches of ground clearance, the FJ has less than 10... Approach and departure angles? No point in comparing. Thanks for playing. The FJ needs serious modifications to match Hummer's offroad capabilities. (I'm obviously not talking about the H2 or H3, those aren't real Hummers).

      @ Franze, nicely said I agree. They do a good job doing what they do.

      @Jaymez, yeah I agree Tupac will always be a legend. I still listen to rap and I really like the music that is out now, but the old stuff was pretty good too.

      That's an outstanding non-sequitur, Jack

      That said, I thought the H1 was a great sports car, if your idea of sports is to drive over boulders, and through reservoirs.

      Am I the only one who gets a gallery for a 2008 Buick LaCrosse CXS? I scrolled down and was like "Whoa"... Wow... didn't know you guys hated H1's or what.
      But, man...

      if anyone actually listened to rap music in the nineties, there was very little bling about it. that was 'gangster' rap.

      the whole ridin on 20s bs didn't start until long after tupac died.

        Thank You...someone with sense, even though today rap music is garbage the rap music of the 90's was quite good

        After about 97 it was a materialistic garbage that you hear today

      @ Edsel

      I understand your point, but most rappers if even slightly popular make Alot of money.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Not just rappers. The recording industry is like a giant money machine. But as a popular artist, in addition to your signing bonuses and royalties from record sales, you get endorsement deals, advertisement contracts, not to mention the money you make going on tour and performing live. Call them uneducated if you like (@ Edsel) but I think they're pretty damn smart to turn their otherwise useless hobby into millions. I wouldn't pay $200k for any Hummer though.

      I do see the similiarity between Pac and Elvis. Pac knew he was going to be killed, far in advance. So he made a LOT of music to be released after he died. He also knew these certain songs would be released after he died, and those songs made references to him being eternal or resurrected, that's what was so eery about it.
      There is still great rap and hip hop being made, but it is not always what is currently popular on the radio,mtv, and bet. Young jeezy is my current favorite. I too started on rap, then went to metal, now I am all hip hop and metal.

      $200k?

      Having retired with two advanced degrees and a professional career under my belt, I'm perplexed at how an uneducated thug could have amassed so much money.

      Hey, at least I'm still enjoying life.
        • 7 Years Ago
        2Pac was not uneducated and he was not ignorant. He knew plenty, he was very street smart. Even with your advanced degrees, I bet there is plenty that pac could of tought you. If you came from nothing, which I know you didn't, pac was part of your ciriculum. He was a god to many people in the lower socio-economic group. His music did make sense, it informed the youth, and tought them lessons about life. Yes, he was a thug, but I wouldn't call him uneducated, and of course he knew he was going to die.

        "I'm perplexed at how an uneducated thug could have amassed so much money." Really? Even with your "advanced degrees" you can't figure out that a musician/actor who started as a teenager and then became the top selling rapper of all time, with 75 million copies being sold, would become extremely wealthy? Wow. Also you use the word thug, in a demeaning way, it's not his fault his mom was a crack addict and his father a criminal. Give credit where credit is due, don't hate.

        I'm a 51 year old white guy. Conservative beyond belief.

        Tupac was extremely talented. Damn shame how he went out.

      It's so funny how people say 90's rap is better than todays rap. "It wasn't about bling in the 90's." Yeah right, why do you think rap is the way it is today? It's because they tested the waters and got away with so much then. It may not have been about Dubs, but it was definitely about bling. In the 90's it was about bitches, ho's, guns, rides, cop killin', and dope. If you don't believe me, go listen to it. It's actually a little cleaner today. There's not so much emphasis on drugs, guns and cop killin', just sex, women, rides and the new alcohol or clothing line they are trying to push.

      The best rap was the late 70's, early to mid 80's. They kept it clean; even if they were talking about selling dope, stolen goods, or making it through another day, it was called hustlin'. They rapped about everyday life on the streets (the struggle), no matter if it was a good story or a bad story you could still listen to it with your kids. The best part about it was that they could relate to it too. Bling was a 1" thick gold rope and a Kangol hat. When NWA dropped, it was all over for clean rap.

      But enough about the rap history lesson, lets get back to talking about cars.
