Ditto. Except I think I want it to be metal and not clear. That way we don't lose the coupes roof lines.

Something I'd also like to see is a spare tire key holder so the darn key lug doesn't have to roll around in my center console or glove box. Plus, it'll make it harder for theives to steel the tires off of the car if they break in real quick. They won't know the key is in the trunk w/ the spare. That would piss off the theives!..and keep my tires/rims!

Yeah, piss off those thieves.
Personally I like to see, an anti-theft system that either opens the door with 150 pounds of force, knocking the thief flat (and scaring the sh** out of him), or a system that locks him in, and disconnects all power from the starter, plays music as loud as possible and flashes it's lights....

According to one of the Transformers sites (not the most reliable, but it's something), it will be using a T56 transmission, which is hydraulic clutch.
I believe it's the transmission the GTO uses, and the Bumblebee Camaro is just a GTO with a new body on it, so it's far from definite.

Of course, it is also what the Corvette, CTS, and SSR use(d), so it's very possible.

Thank you.

And I believe it is, everywhere I check says so at least.
I'm far from the expert when it come to transmissions though.
...Of all the cars to forget.

That's my bet as well. The c5 and c6 vettes in manual form use the T56 and have hydraulic clutches. If you track your car or drive it hard, periodically you will need to get a turkey baster and suck the dirty hyd. fluid from the clutch reservior and replace it with new fluid. You'll know when you need to as the fluid will turn black. In the c5 vettes a lot of people had issues with their clutch pedal sticking to the floor after repeated flogging if they didn't change out the fluid.

Umm...that sucks. I hope they improve that design, because the last thing I want to do is get into a car accident because the clutch pedal became stuck.
