Seeing the Camaro in the Transformers movie
 
Well,

The movie a lot of us were anxious to see has came, and I can only speak for myself(and probably the folks in the theater with me), but when they showed the clip of when bumblebee swithched from the '76 Camaro (which I dug being that was when I was born) to the Concept Camaro, there were a lot of oohs and ahhs, claps, whistles, heavy breathing, and excitement from the movie watchers. My wife, who is usually a stuck in the mud at the movies, seemed a little excited and said " I can see you in that car!"
It was a beautiful thing to see.

Anyway, I wanted to know how most of you felt seeing this beautiful car on the big screen? I know for me it made me go to see this movie again. I was literally shaking after seeing this movie,twice. What were you guys emotions?

When, the Camaro showed up in the movie. The whole movie theater was yelling and screaming. The hair on the back of my neck stood up and I couldn't stop looking.

Lessk 07-09-2007 05:56 PM

Yeah I heard a bunch of people make a comotion along with me. Heh

And my wife was like "Oh that is sexy! That would look so good next to your '69!"

....Yeah!

Must have......I admit I'm at the obsessing stage in regard to the 5th gen.

I just got back from seeing the movie and all I can say is WOW:eyebulge:
It looked awesome in motion burning the tires and driving agressive. When it first came on screen a few people were like OOOHH MAN!! I almost jumped out of my seat in excitement but i controlled myself. I want it to hit the showroom floors already so i can be driving one with a hot chick in the passenger seat!!!!!

1bad67camaro 07-09-2007 10:04 PM

:laugh: lol soflaz my wife had to hold me down that car is sweet it is sick !!!!! cant wait to test drive one

daddyseth1 07-10-2007 12:03 AM

A guy in the seat next to me said that "so many people are going to buy this car and in this color(bumblebee yellow)". I said to him, " Amen!, but I am going to get the silver coupe".

my gf leaned over when BB changed to the 09 and asked if that was the car I wanted. when I told her yes, she said "that looks so much better than the camaro you have now, do you want one? we can get it."

The theater was mostly empty when I saw it...but of the Ten or so groups in the audience - there were many laughs...screaming, so I could only imagine what it would have been like had the theater been full!

but! when Bumblebee got pissed that she called him a "piece of crap Camaro", and dumped them out - my heart started racing, because by this point I'd been like - wtf, where's the 5th gen? I knew now it was coming VERY soon. when bumblebee came screaming down the street in 5th gen form, I was panting, and twitching with excitement. Of the few people, I was claping and whooping, the old people in front of me gave an approving grunt, some younger guys (25ish) stated: "damn...", and the people nearer to the screen were heard to say "oooh, I like that, yeah! That's really nice!"

needless to say, I was intensely proud of myself, 'cause that was "MY" car on the big screen! and people were already oohing, and ahhing! I can still feel what I felt in the theater! I'm smiling so hard my face hurts right now!:laugh:

daddyseth1 07-10-2007 01:11 AM

It makes you want to see it again and again. Well the good thing about this is that movies nowadays take three months to come out on video. So around halloween or thanksgiving, we can have this movie for our own viewing pleasure!

Dragon, now imagine yourself going to see and touch the concept tomorrow. That's how I feel. I went to see it on Tuesday, Wednesday and then rev it up on Friday and Saturday.

:D

BTW: All of the friends I saw the movie with were drooling and asking if it was the car I had been babbling about for the last 6 months. When I replied yes, they said they could see why.

1bad67camaro 07-10-2007 01:49 AM

guys that car is going to kick major rear ends all over i wish it was late 2008 so we can see it on the road smartest thing that gm did is bringing back are camaro

Mr. Wyndham 07-10-2007 01:53 AM

...our Camaro...sorry, it's an old joke - that nobody will remember (faulty grammar). :laugh: (sigh).

but I agree, very smart - chevy was starting to get bland, the Corvette can only make up for so much lack in interesting product...now the Camaro's back...and things are going to get interesting :evil: :laugh:

And Mindz, you lucky Dog - touch it for me, will 'ya? ;)

Mindz 07-10-2007 02:10 AM

I already touched it a few times. The guy that revved the concept while loading it on the youtube video was the head of security for it and watched it like a hawk ALL DAY BOTH DAYS. He went to get food or go to the restroom a few times. I took full advantage.

1bad67camaro 07-10-2007 02:13 AM

I was soooo anxious to see this movie cause of the camaro and i loved the whole camaro vs mustang part..which we all knew the camaro was going to knock the socks off the mustang.

Then when the that girl called bumblebee a "piece of crap" which i cried just a little cause you dont call a camaro a piece of ____ and then when it came back as the 08-09 camaro and heard that beautiful engine sound my heart started racing and i got giddy like a school girl, hit my boyfriend in the arm and told him we are getting one those the day it comes out...I cant wait untill that car comes out.

P.S : Im new to the camaro board ...nice to meet all you guys ;)

My friend and I touched the silver coupe @ the Philly Auto Show. We were there on the press day that we were invited too thru here.

My friend placed his finger on it for a pic and said 'Oooh, look, I got to touch a multi-million dollar concept car.' LOL So since the woman standing watch didn't seem to have a problem with our fingertips touching it, I did the same thing.

Not quite the 'touch' some others have gotten, but it still counts. haha

And note what the young woman said. 'This car looks pretty FUTURISTIC.'

I'd be willing to bet that a lot of non-enthusiasts are going to see more 'futuristic' and less 'retro' when it comes out.

I admit, I find it FAR more 'future' than 'past'.

Welcome Z28CamaroGirl84!

Glad to see another person from the bay area on the boards. I've been the only one so far. The same thing happened to me. My girlfriend didn't hit me on the arm though. She just said "OK, you can get one."

shibbychevy15 07-10-2007 04:44 PM

My wife said "man I don't even get that kind of reaction out of you!" :iono: ;) :laugh: anyway she did like it alot better on screen in action then in the pics. hopefully thats the final go ahead!!

~Cheers~ :drinking: :smoking:

The coolest part of the movie, is just before Bumblebee updates to a 2009, he just casually sees one already driving around in traffic. At that moment, I believe you can see two camaros on the screen at the same time. The one in traffic, you see the back of the car driving away and the front of the Camaro Bumblebee immediately changed into.

The movie concept Camaro is amazing in that at all times you see these ridiculously large wheels on a camaro, which are perfect for the movie, but I would not say realistic if you actually had to drive that. The movie Camaro is as stylized as you can get.

Yes seeing the new Camaro doing burnouts was pretty sweet. My spouse kept staring at me to see how I reacted to the car. She Also did not really know what this car looked like, though she had heard about it. i just sat there and pretended to be "normal" level of impressed when I was really extremely impressed. she knows I want to buy one.

And I AM going back to see the movie again ONLY to see the car again LOL :laugh: The car just being in the movie is going to add I estimate $100 million in extra ticket sales. :)

MerF 07-11-2007 02:29 PM

I popped wood.

Not really...but close.

I'm taking the GF to see the movie this weekend, hopefully.

Well I am going to be a big contributor to that figure, because as crazy as it sounds, I am going to see it for a third time, but I am going to take my neices and nephews to a Saturday Matinee to see it (1 neice and three nephews). I cant help it. :bow: :bow: :drool:
