Wow that's a shocking number. I wonder if any of the movies that the Mustangs were in were as popular as the Transformers movie?

The first time I saw the Transformers movie on premier night, I made a promise to myself to get one.

Guilty as charged. Saw the movie saw the car. Had to have one. End of story.

I doubt I'd be in the process of ordering/purchasing a Camaro if Transformers never came out
...
However, Barricade/The Mustang in the movie chasing Bee was pretty nice as well. And I don't necessarily consider myself a Mustang fan

I would also like to praise Chevy for making the Camaro very much like the concept car that was shown on Transformers!

From the time they stopped production of the 4th gen in 2002 I've been hunting the Internet and looking at "5th gen concept designs" I that kept popping up and when it finally came out that they were actually going to build it I was hooked. The movie didn't do anything for me on the decision to buy one, I already had that set in my head. Buuuuuut I know a lot of people that didn't know About the car until the move came out. So it was a huge advertising thing for GM and I think it sold them a ton of cars.

When the first Transformers movie came out I wasn't even driving yet. The only thing I knew about the Camaro was that it was a ugly car that I beat every other car in Project Gotham Racing on the xbox in 3rd grade.

When I saw it on the big screen I wanted one bad. I thought I'd never be able to afford it, especially at this age, but that turned out to be false. I'd say I would of probably never considered the car if it wasn't for the movie.

...if you would of told me in 2010 that I would buy a brand new one in high school, I would have laughed in your face.

What a great decision GM made to put the car in a movie! I wouldn't have thought many people would have bought the car because of the movie, but then again what a great way to show the masses the car.

tons.

This car was and still is "the car" for young people today, and yes, mostly because of transformers but also just because of how good this car looks.

We always use to dream and compare our color choices for the body and stripes back in school... wonder what those guys and gals think of me actually getting one today! Feels good.

say what you will about TF2 and TF3 being awful movies, but the first is still actually a pretty decent film IMO. They really dumbed down the second one.

Camaro helped the movie sell in my mind. the movie was our only look at the 5Gen for 3 years and kept ppl from going crazy because it seemed like forever. I think the movie just was just advertisement just another commercial. LOL sorry to that Ford Guy advertisement is advertisement . how many movies was the mustang in ? and it was the only muscle car in most but haven't sold more than the camaro. the chargers was in the fast 5 movie but I don't see them selling much like the previous version

one movie vs millions of mustang commercials. You would think commercials would've sold more. No wonder the mustang Guy is complaining he's
