Thumbs up Nuts about Transformers & Bumblebee Camaro?! Not as crazy as these Chinese fans.

Featured on Homepage.

To celebrate the release of Transformers 2 in China, a hardcore group of Transformers fans organized a drive through the streets of Beijing. Only they didn't do it in their regular looking cars. Each participant has transformed a normal daily driver into a bumblebee camaro style looking automobile.

The organized event was arranged by Autohome.com.cn and a Chevy dealer in China even got in on the act, taking a rally yellow Camaro and applying paint to the front fascia so as to mimic the second generation Bumblebee Camaro's front end.

What's most telling to us is the universal fan base that GM has apparently managed to build with the design of the Bumblebee Camaro and its shrewd placement in a blockbuster movie. Seemingly, movie and automotive fans alike from across the world of different ethnicities and fans of all varied makes of cars have taken very kindly to the movie and its star transformer/car.

If you look really closely, I think that's a stock front fascia with black trapezoids painted around the fog lights. It's amazing how much that mimics the appearance of Bumblebee's actual pocketed fascia.

LOL cute, but I think most of those cars are Rally yellow except I think 1 of those cars. In the ariel view it should be the car diagonal down and to the left of center. Yeah I think the fronts just been painted black and I know they couldn't have gotten a Z28 hood for it yet so it's missing that, BUT it's pretty nice.

I was considering getting bumblebee striping on my Mustang since I have screaming yellow, but probably not... I'd be doing myself an injustice to a car that I want to eventually have.
