I went to the major GM Nationals car show in Carlisle, PA this past weekend and had the honor of seeing the concept convertible and the bumblebee from Transformers (original) in person. Here are a couple pics I got

This makes me wonder more if the Bumblebee in TF2 is an actual Camaro, not a Saleen'd GTO...

Well............this is definately one of the orginal Bumblebees, of which there are 2 or 3 i think???? Sooo they could have easily modded the others cars and not this one. I do remember when the cars were pulled from the show schedules specifically to begin shooting the 2nd movie. But I hope you are right!!!!!!!

This bumble bee is not a converted GTO to Camaro by Saleen. I think this is the red fiberglass push car from the show display that was just repainted to be bumble bee while the real movie car is off shooting the new movie. The wheels on this bumble bee are real not simulated alloy hub caps. Just my observation, i could be wrong.

Compare the concept convertible's front wheel clearance to the concept bumble bee's wheel clearance from these photo's. The bumble bee has the look of a car with no engine.

You're half-right...if I've got my facts straight.

This was a fiberglass silver car, that was painted bumblebee's color, and given the correct lights, and rims, etc.

Again, that's if I remember what I read from Scott correctly........

I have to agree. I love that 4th gen. And I love everything they have done to it the 1/4s, rear spoiler, all aluminum 427. Its just a sick car that I would love to own.

yep thats the silver push pull car that was repainted to look like bumblebee. The Penske 4th gen. car will never be destroyed, by GM anyway.

GM brought a whole bunch of nice cars. Really nice examples of Impala's along with some Camaro's.

This is how I envision my Camaro. The closer to this, the better. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

+1 You know agree with you 100% on that. Oh and did you see the lovely open vents with the inserts? I hope that makes it to production as well.

On that note I'm going to begin Bumpergate. I want to know who is with me and Capt Awesome.

I can't wait for the release, so the "True Story" behind the development of this car can be told.

I want the complete delineation (sp?) of all the concept variants that were produced. In other words, if the first concept was repainted a different color to go to another show two months after being "carved," I want to know.

In a similar vein, how many (total) vehicles were produced BEFORE the IVERS, and what were their histories? (construction, colors, features, etc).

AND - I want a comprehensive set of interviews from the drivetrain, design, and interior teams at GM that detail all the trials and tribulations that will (and have) led to what will be the final product we all will see soon.

Not to mention, it would be nice if there were a special "bonus feature" that made mention of the effect that all of us enthusiasts had on the final product, were it actual, usable feedback -- or more subtle things like the fact that the dev team enjoyed our humorous posts along the way (meaning, the whole "Shunt" experience on this forum, for example).

Considering the length of time it will take to get this thing to the showroom after the concept was first unveiled, this documentary of the Camaro (And Zeta!!!!) development should last at least two hours.

I'd buy it!!!

You?

^Everything he said x 1,000,000. I'd buy it in a "heartbeat."

Seriously...I'd but it. Watch it. Watch it again....and again....and again....

The silver push was an overseas car. It needed to be repainted so GM brought it back and painted to look like the Bumblebee car. To my knowledge there are 6 concept cars. Silver running, vert running, red push, silver push
and the two Bumblebee cars.

Sorry to those who wanted to see the 4th gen next to it - I would have gotten pictures if I could but I am Enochlophobic (fear of crowds) :( so I had to get outta there since everyone was around the cars.

Hopefully someone else who went to Carlisle on this message board did get some pictures for everyone, but I was in, snapped pictures, and got out.

Though it may not be the "real" bumblebee, it was still a very good looking car sitting there and I can't wait to order mine! I am just hoping for the classic blue with white stripes

I was also at Carlisle last Saturday. A GREAT time, especially seeing Scott.

Scott and John (Fitzpatrick) also had a Q&A regarding the Camaro.

AS for the GM Performance 4th Gen., here is a pic. I dug up from a past Carlisle show.
