DETROIT -- Two doomed General Motors Co. brands -- Saturn and Hummer -- are getting their last hurrahs on the assembly line.

GM assembled 1,037 Saturn Outlooks last month after not making any Saturns since October.

“We are building out a few Saturns to utilize existing material,” GM spokeswoman Kim Carpenter said. GM will assemble Outlooks for a few more weeks, she said.

Meanwhile, a fleet company has ordered 849 Hummer H3s and H3Ts, so the Hummer line in Shreveport, La., will restart April 12 to build the vehicles. GM has promised to finish the Hummers by May 13, GM spokesman Otie McKinley said.

Hummer production stopped in January.

GM is winding down both Hummer and Saturn after deals to sell them collapsed.

Nothing sad about it. GM left Saturn and Pontiac to die a slow death we all know why HUMMER is dead. Now GM has another chance, lets see if it's the same old thing or something new.

Ok I guess you can find a sad thing in it .... GM of the past 30 years.
