The Hummer H2 doesn’t exactly fly under the radar. Measuring in at 203.5 inches in overall length and nearly 80 inches in height, not to mention the big, blocky styling, the H2 has a commanding presence on the road. But while the stock vehicle has a sort of off-roader, Tonka-truck-for-grown-ups kind of vibe, it doesn’t offer the same flash as, say, the Cadillac Escalade. Well, this custom version fixes all that with a blinged-out black-and-gold exterior – the perfect spec for one “Alligator Ron” Bergeron.
Captured in a Florida parking lot looking fresh and clean after a summer downpour, the black-and-gold Hummer H2 comes with deep black paint offset by 24-karat detailing for the front grille and bash bar, fender liners, door trim, sideview mirror caps, window trim, door handles, wire wheels, and a bunch of other bits and pieces. This is one H2 that’s hard to miss.
We’re particularly interested in the gold ladder in back and gold spare wheel housing on the roof rack. Cool details like that help to set it apart even further.
Seriously, this thing looks like a Las Vegas attraction on wheels. We wouldn’t be surprised to see a boisterous bachelorette party spill out the back as soon as one of the doors was opened.
It’s also worth devoting more than a few words to the car’s owner. “Alligator Ron” Bergeron is one of the most interesting public servants in Florida. Previously working as state wildlife commissioner, and appointed earlier this year to the South Florida Water Management District governing board, Bergeron is a former rodeo champion and a python hunter. He’s also wrestled alligators, hence the name. Country music star Tanya Tucker even wrote a song about him titled “Alligator Man.”
Apparently, Bergeron owns five Hummer H2 models, likening them to an “off-road Cadillac.”
We’re absolutely fascinated by this H2, not to mention its owner. Rest assured, we’ll follow up to bring you more info on it (and him) as soon as we can. In the meantime, subscribe to GM Authority for additional Hummer news and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
