So, I went to Transformers 3 last night. I parked so when you pulled up, you could see my car right away. I then waited outside for a bit til the movie started. As I was waiting, I counted 20 people stopped and took a photo of my car with their phones. And mine isn't even yellow! How cool is that?

Need a Camaros in the movies fix? Check this site out. http://www.imcdb.org/vehicles.php?ma...=Camaro&page=1

Most are fleeting moments of Camaros but still fun to browse through. Who would of thought there was a Camaro in "Attack of the 60 foot Centerfolds"?

Vanishing Point Challenger is a very iconic car; however, I agree that the Autobots Movies have put the Camaro in front of otherwise non-Camaro people who may not of cosidered it prior to those movies. For car people like most on here, it did not change that we wanted the Camaro, it just made our car that much more of an icon.

You can't tell me that EVERYONE--young & old alike don't think of S & B when they see a late 70's TransAm with that screamin' eagle on the hood. Yes...5th Gen Camaros/Transformers is close, and the Mustang/Shelby will invoke both Bullit & Gone in 60 seconds in a car enthusiasts brain. But no car/movie combo will ever be as ingrained in our minds as Smokey & the Bandit...IMHO.

And to the product placement question....yes. Cool cars in cool movies will have people going out and at least wanting if not actually buying that car. After I saw Fast Five, I told my husband, "If those new Chargers really do have enough power to pull a safe out of a concrete wall....that will be my next 4 door."
Absolutely true. A C5 member even named his camaro "Elanor" I saw that and was like "wtf?"

Yep. I have had many Mustangs and the Camaro...my first...and no Mustang got the attention that the Camaro gets...probably becaue it looks like the one in the movie.

Fast 5 didn't make me want to get a Charger. Even if it could pull a concrete safe.

I just wish they hadn't killed Pontiac so we could be talking about Smokey and the Bandit and the Trans Am.... The ultimate movie car in my opinion, followed by the General Lee. I love Camaros but even Transformers doesn't show enough of the Camaro to make it a big deal to people who don't own Camaros. That's my opinion anyway.

I was talking to a Chrysler engineer at their proving grounds, and they, the engineers, were trying to convince Chrysler to take the 68 Charger body, and start producing it with the modern upgrades. As can be expected, Chrysler refused, saying a retro car like that would not sell. No wonder they are in trouble. I would buy one in a heartbeat.

Absolutely! To me that is what makes the Camaro so popular. It is very close to it's roots. Of course, the Challenger is too. I've said for years that if someone built a new car with modern amenities and a 69 Camaro body that it would be a hit.

Re: the amount of "retro" in the modern (c5) Camaro.

I think the ratio of retro to modern in the C5(50%) is much better than in the Mustang(70%). there are some aspects of the old camaro that MUST be in the C5, to be sure. The "wasp waist, for starters and other elements. There are simply more modern elements Id like to see in the next gen. A steeper raked hood, for example. Just MHO.

All I know is this.. When I got my car, almost every little kid said, "You got the transformer car!?" or "You got bumblebee!?" I have never heard a mustang being referee as a car from a specific movie.

Honestly, 28., if I ever get ahold of an SS front fascia* I plan on finding a way to make it do that "KIT" red light thing. EVERY time I see the mail slot SS FF I think of KIT. Best. Childhood. EVER!
Cheers.

I used to love the Night Rider Mustang. Especially when it talked. I used to watch it all the time.
