Calling all: Transformers Special Edition Camaro owners!
 
How many Transformers Special Edition Camaros are out there and what are some of your best stories regarding how people are reacting to your car??
:rolling5thgen:

I picked up my Transformers edition Camaro on Friday of last week (10/23)... Since then, I have become quite popular... Last night was the best reaction thus far... I was taking one of my daughter's friends home and after turning onto her street we came across a bunch of young (5th grade or so) boys playing in their front yard. As I pulled in front of their house, they basically just stood there in shock (mouths hanging open). As I pulled away they started yelling "Bumble Bee!" After I dropped the friend off, we came back down the same street where the boys were still gathered - only this time they were on both sides. They were screaming "Bumble Bee" so I decided to honk for them... That sent them into a frenzy! It was so funny (and so much fun)! ;-)

Although I didn't get the Transformers Edition, I did get it Yellow with black stripes.

I love when kids call out it's name. Of course I find myself talking to it too.

Countless, its like being in the movie (Although nobody stopped Sam and asked howd get a future Camaro). Just like yours. Ive had moms with kids throwing a fit, I let people take pictures inside of it, I even let another poster drive. Everybody loves it. I had a Mustang say "Id race you, but I dont want my car to totaled!"

:headbang:My wife and I traded cars one day (Her Acadia needed work done.) She's driving the car for the first time and tells the kids that she really likes it. She then say's that maybe she should get one. My seven year old says" You can't because dad has the only Bumblebee!"

All the rest of you must be fakes!

I looked at one in my area and it sure looked good but for the pricetag they were asking I could have bought a 2LT and a 2SS...

I can't wait for mine! I have a TPW of this week and I am waiting for a VIN. I need the car so bad to because my 2009 Dodge Challenger went back last week under lemon law.

1badSS/RS 10-30-2009 07:22 AM

Love it. People not only comment on it all the time(parking lot, gas station, driving down the road, ect), but people actually stop and take pictures of it regularly. She sure gets the attention.:)

wrek 10-30-2009 07:39 AM

Kids at the school like seeing it.. then I hit the sound effects and they go nuts. Even the Moms enjoy it ;) ;)

philipdistefano 10-30-2009 08:04 AM

Personally, I think Bumblebee is more orange than yellow.

Anywho, I ordered my RY 2LT/RS a few weeks ago and my TPW is next week. No Transformers package, but I'm sure I won't need it to hear someone call it Bumblebee. :P

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...t=custom+sound - I had to install the 516L module AND a keyless entry module in order to get it to work via remote. The keyless entry module doesn't have anything to do with the car, I simply use it for it's RF receiver and outputs for door locks and trunk to fire the 3 custom sounds on the 516L. Then I recorded the two transformation sounds and Optimus's famous, "Autobots! Transform and Rollout!"

I hooked up buttons to also fire the three custom sounds so I can reach under the dash and press one of 3 buttons to broadcast the sound.

The sound comes from a loudspeaker/siren mounted under the hood so it's nice and loud.

You don't need the Transformers package for the kids to be calling a rally yellow SS with Black Stripes "Bumblebee". I get it all the time...

The TFE package is not bumblebee anyway, it's a Transformers tribute package. It just happens to resemble the car/actor from the movie.
