I think all movie themed cars are absolutely childish, and unless your Camaro is HOK Sunrise Gold, Your car is not bumblebee, and as someone already said Bumblebee is actually a VW. I mean you don't see me going around driving a Charger that looks like the General Lee, a Challenger that that's straight outta Vanishing Point or a TransAm that looks like K.I.T.T. To each their own but to be honest little plastic badges like those of the Autobots Emblem just make this car look lame.

For what it's worth Waspinator is the opposite of Bumblebee, he's green though.

It really says something about you if you drive a movie themed car and your not still a teenager. I always get a good laugh when I see a grown a$$ man in a decepticon or bumblebee camaro.

I mentioned this in a similar thread, but I'd be tempted to do something styled after the Seekers, especially if I had a black car. You could even leave the faction logos off and just have it be a styled "sleeper," as it were.

These are what I came up with before.

Starscream


Thundercracker


Skywarp


I'd love to have the Skywarp color scheme, but I don't think I'll ever buy a black car.

The OP asked for the different views I gave them mine. So sorry sometimes I forget that Camaro5 is a communist nation.

C5 is to be a friendly nation. And sorry if my post seams rude. It's hard to discuss topics and others take what your typing as if your mad or ?????? .not sher if your a dad or not but if your child who you take to shows and what not wants to be dif. This is something I do with my daughter and keeps her and me working together. Childish maybe but I'm respectful of others also. I can tell your not into theme cars and that's cool (but it don't mean we cant have a beer and be friends). There is more with my car than just a decepticon theme like very cool body kit a drop spring kit and havok spoiler and abl. Hell it's a Camaro under all that. what's not to like!!

I'm all into theme cars but at the same time I believe there can be times where it gets too extreme, if you understand my meaning. There is a reason Bumblebee and only Bumblebee is a Camaro, I mean how many people were pissed about the GT500 King of the Road that they used to portray K.I.T.T. in the, excuse my language, basterdized version of Knight Rider? I love the Old Theme cars and to me if everyone is making their Camaro a damn decepticon or an autobot it kinda gets on my nerves. In the end do what you want and it's sweet if your daughter gave you the idea and will work on the car with you because of it.

I should hope I don't have any kids I'm 19 also if your ever in Edmonton, AB then for sure there is no reason we couldn't talk about Cars over a beer or whatever your poison may be

Forums can be hard, because everyone takes what people say the way they feel it should be, which is almost always negitively. I will however say that the first bit in my first post was intended to be rude. I don't go around dissing cars that I know will send my Camaro fleeing, but I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion. My next car which I'm hoping to purchase this spring will be a Red GT500 with Carbon Fibre Stripes and a Glass Roof, it may be slower than the ZL1 but I already have a Camaro and I have no desire to loose money trading my SS or spend $80,000 on a Camaro. Stupid dealer mark up, a base Vette up here is $100,000 in some places.

Your totally right about the wantabe nightrider car. And REALY I think we think alike also. Some times theme cars can be very over the top. I like the subtle aproch. By the way the glass roof on the new stange is a very awesome looking deal. iv said this before. C5 is a very cool club were ells could you line up 50 plus 5th gens and not one is like the next.

I think its fine if you go through with a transformers theme. If you dont like it, dont do it to your car and quit b!tching about those who do. However, IMO the actual physical car is very easy to over-do. Sure, you can name it after a transformer, just dont cover your car in badges and throw a bunch of stickers on everything. I wanted subtle hints on the cars theme, which is decepticons. However, I didnt want people to think a twelve year old decorated my car. So all I did was my bowties. Nothing else. I know what happens when you put the cars theme on everything. It looks like sh!t and makes the owner look like a tool. I test drove a 2011 Subaru Sti. After we got done driving it, we counted 12 "sti" logos on the exterior alone, and 9 on the interior. This is one of the reasons I like my SS so much. It says "SS" twice on the outside, and 3 times on the interior. Its not shoving the idea down your throat, it just gives subtle hints that the car is not a base model (no offense to LT drivers). Pic related, its my bowties:

But an anti-Bumblebee Camaro would be black with rally yellow stripes I'd think.

Anti-Bumblebee is technically Waspinator.……

…… and he is Green. Though your idea could be a kinda Bizarro Bumblebee or something.
