I can't stand the Transformers movies, I bought my Camaro despite its appearance in that crappy movie.

Even though I thought the Transformers movie was kind of hokey (never saw it, just some clips, etc.), car models do become popular from movies..

And if anything, Chevy got the idea from Mustang....Look what movies like "Bullit" with Steve McQueen and the Mustang from "Gone in Sixty Seconds" have done for those car's sales and popularity....It's nothing new, just sayin'...

Ford truck sales even went up after the movie "Mr. Majestyk" with Charles Bronson...lol

Always thought the design was killer but it wasn't until SGM was released that I absolutely had to have one. Therefore Transformers was not the influence though I did first see it in the film.

When I was first looking for a vehicle I was looking at 3rd gens.

I love all the odd number generations 1,3,5 but the evens don't wow me as much. I'm actually hoping that follows suit with 6th gen considering I just got my 5th gen 2 months ago.

Currently, mustangs has been in a few movies like that stupid war car movie even was in the transformer movie. Nobody saying mustang sells wouldn't be what they are if it wasn't for the movies they were in. Poeple love to hate something that's great .

Yep. The movie was just a bonus for me.

What's funny is the Camaro in the first movie was really a GTO with a Camaro concept shell over it. All the GTO guys could recognize the interior of the car everytime they showed the inside.
