What you see here is a 1998 AM General Hummer that's very different from every other 1998 AM General Hummer. That's because this particular 1998 AM General Hummer is a fire truck. It's painted tennis ball green. It has an emergency light bar. It can fight all the off-road fires you can't get to in your normal fire truck.

Offered for sale with 65,700 miles for $49,995 by American Auto Group in Miami, this Hummer is equipped with all the aforementioned features, along with doors to hold firefighting equipment, a rear spotlight, a ladder to climb on the back, sirens and what appears to be some sort of complicated water-shooting system located in back. The entire seller description reads as follows:

"Firefighter truck has all the waterholes."

Seriously, that's the whole description. So we know from the pictures it's a Hummer, and it's got a lot of firefighting equipment, and the description has let us know it "has all the waterholes." According to the Carfax report, it's a one-owner vehicle that was registered new in Denver and serviced in the Denver area, suggesting it had probably been used to fight fires in the Rocky Mountains or the foothills surrounding Denver. Interestingly, it has surprisingly high mileage, suggesting it was used quite a bit.

Anyway, if you've ever wanted a Hummer that stands out even more than a normal Hummer, here's your chance. You'll probably have to remove the emergency light bar. You won't need to remove the waterholes.
