Now that's some marketing right there. That went to DVD awfully fast too! Wonder what the 3 camaro's will have in them as far as engines go?

Hmm, you think these Bumblebee Camaros will be released early? or will the lucky winners have to wait until the actual release date, like the rest of us?

Also, will these be actual Camaros, or will they be the "Camaro" from the movie?

Although it would be a bit misleading to own the GTO's that were actually Bumblebee (since they aren't really Camaros/Zeta cars)...just imagine the VALUE of those 3 cars in about 30 years!

I think if I were to win a GTmarO, I'd still have to buy a real Camaro come release day.

I can't wait. I'm probably one of the few people who haven't seen the movie yet.....I know, I know.

Well, seeing as the movie cars were nowhere close to being street legal, I'd say the winners will probably get production vehicles. They may have to wait a long time to take delivery though.

Anything is street legal if it's titled as a kit car.

It doesn't say you'll be able to drive it. If I'm correct, I believe they used a few GTmarOs in the making of the movie, and I would not be surprised if these were the cars they are offering. Merely as collectors items, not meant to drive around.

They only built one GTmarO for the movie. They had to be careful with it. The rest was just robot form parts. Only one actual car was used.

My mistake. I read so many different things at so many different places, it all starts to run together.

Customized seems to be the key word. I feel as if it would say "custom made" if they were the GTO Camaros.
Having one would be utter crap though. If you got it early, you would want to drive it, but you would realize it was only 1 of 3, which would discourage almost anyone from driving it any real distance.
I'm curious what the wait on these will be as well.

Actually, there were (2) GTO Camaros built.....one for the close ups etc that Scott S is traveling with now to different events and one for distance shots. It won't be either one of these though as already mentioned. Some additional reasons are, it probably couldn't get titled even as a kit, since there's no "kits" available, the hoods can't be opened without breaking the windshield wipers off, the doors can't be shut normally as there are no strikers or bumbers and Scott has said several times that they were resin paneled cars that have to be kept out of the sun as much as possible. The hood on the traveling car is warped in several spots. Oh, and the paint is a formula that changes colors depending on the light it's in and don't hold me to it, but I think I heard it mentioned that it was a $10,000 paint job.

Either way, if you could win one of THREE cars built......however they were built.....instant collector's item.....don't worry though, I'm sure they people that win them will be more concerned with how much they can get on eBay rather than being proud to own a part of automotive and movie history.

Sadly, I'm sure you are 100% correct. I'd like to think that I would keep the car if I somehow won it, but I seriously doubt I could afford the tax payment. It would be monstrous.

I'm gonna take another angle. I wonder if this isn't also a feeler from GM to see what kind of responce they'd get for a Bumble Bee option. I mean your going to have to register to put in for these three cars right? Why not have a survey attached as part of it . Now as for the three Camaro's I wonder what engine they are going to have in them?

From what I read, they're going to be production Camaros.

I really don't think GM is going to give up the car that they have. Gm legal wouldn't allow it.........However I could see them giving a production car away when they become available......

Dodge had something like this awhile back remember? You could win a 2008 Challenger or a Jeep something or other. Never heard about it since.

remember that Bumblebee was also a 1976 Camaro in the movie, so they might be giving away '76 models that have been modified to look like the one in the movie.

oh, and NVM is right: there are two surviving Bumblebee 5th gens, they are resin bodied cars and their paint jobs are quite expensive, although the number that I had heard was $8000... GM wont be parting with the Bumblebee cars anytime soon.

So far, it looks like the 3 Bumblebees that will be offered up in the contest will be "special edition" production Camaros which will be limited in production...meaning only 3 made w/ the special paint, etc. It appears as those will be a car collectors dream!

That said -- there will be more info. forthcoming after the actual contest is out there -- and the vehicles that will be won are production Camaros -- specially painted in the Bumblebee color..........

..........so those WILL be collector cars!
