Smile 2010 Transformers Special Edition Camaro SS/RS

Anyone have a Bumblebee ?? I Pick mine up next Friday !

I have been in love with this car since the first Transformers movie..

At the begining of the second movie while in the theater I said "I'm buying that car!". I started out by buying a little matchbox or hot wheels of my car and made my plan..

I knew what I wanted from the start, Bumblebee, but then came the confusion..

It was hard to choose between the manual and the auto. I have not seen a bumblebee with a manual by the way, have you ?

I was going to order a LS3 bumblebee, but they took the option off the GM website a week too soon .
I was caught off guard, and needed my car!!!!

I wanted that extra 26 hp soo bad.. The manual is an animal, but you can chill in the auto and it still has plenty of power...

I test drove so many camaros.. I think everybody knows how a 2010 camaro test drive goes.

It starts out with telling the salesman to hang on! And he replies "what happends on the test drive stays on the test drive" or "It's a sports car check it out!' or "I love camaro test drives"

And "I test drove them!"

LS3 vs l99 .. 426hp vs 400hp, "does it really matter?" they are all fast !

The v-6 even has some *****, but if I got the v-6 it would be the stick..
But the v-6 is a totally different car.

Any v-6 bumblebees out there ?

I looked at soo many colors... For me the Black , Silver, Blue, Red all looked good too.. I asked myself "Which one would be the easiest to keep clean?", "which one would show less scratches?"

In the end I got the one that I wanted from the begining..Bumblebee, but at another dealer because the dealer where I was going to buy the car they knew that I wanted it and tried to take advantage of me..

They were very nice in the begining, but in the end I was like taken for granted, and that pissed me off..

So I went to the next place and got it there.. ... @ a good price too!
They are all the same cars...

By next big dilemma is the front plate.. where to put it?

I drive for a living and I have an excellent driver discount on my insurance, so I don't want any tickets.. BUT the factory front plate mount is ugly.. I bought a show and go license plate bracket, and the dealer has another one that mounts from under the nose..

This is my story... To Be Continued...

One of the coolest things I did last summer was take my car to the drive-in to see TF2.

Now that was cool.. I'm going to keep some little yellow hot wheels transformers camaros in the trunk for the fans !!!!

Has anyone put the SS badges on the fenders? I'm thinking about it.. I think they stick on.. doesn't all the stuff like the words C A M A R O on the fenders, the SS & Transformers badges just stick on ?

Mine has the autobot badge under the camaro words or I would put them there like I just saw in a video, but I wounder how SS would look towards the front of the fenders ??

My step dad has the red SS emblems underneath the Camaro one but idk about down on the fenders. You might want to check out Camaro5, they've got a lot of info and pictures over there.

Luckily in WV you don't have to have a front plate on. Unlucky for me, the GT I bought was from Ohio, and had the holes already in there. :/

I like in mass. I don't know what the law is in mass. It's chapter 90 section 6 of the MGL. The RMV/DVM says that it is an equiptment violation. I insurance agent from arb*lla and Gi*co both say they can raise my insurance for that type of violation..

I drive a serious vehicle for a living CDL A /Hazmat... So tickets effect my employment & my car insurance... I have a driving clean record for a long time.

So any front plate solutions? The dealer has the factory one (not), & another one that bolts on from the bottom then a plate bracket bolts into that from the bottom center of the nose and comes up. It has foam behind it to protect the car. The other one is the show and go manual bracket.

Does anyone know is the license plate has to be in the middle(center) of the nose in Mass ?

The car is available right now. You might find one at the dealer. They stopped producing them about a week or two ago.

I'm curious to see how many there are. I've seem two in Mass. I bought one of them...

I don't think there are special codes in the vin for this option...
But GM says they know. Anyone know the code?

Anyone have a bumblee out there?

yep....camaro5...the rpo tag will tell you if it is a transformers edition or not. ended up being a rare run of those cars...I think it'd be neat for sure. I like my silver one with carbon grey stripes though.

I got it for $2300 under sticker, but I'm getting all the extended warantee, the road hazard tire coverage, & the Zylon (Xlon I don't know how to spell it) paint treatment for about $1800.. I think I got a really good deal on everything.

My biggest issue is still the front plate. I bought the show and go, but didn't like it because it looks like when it flips open in might press against the car. It flips open at a 90 degree angle but I think to mount it from underneath the nose is lees than a 90 degree angle.
