Trailbreaker's Yellow Camaro Journal

Hi,

First let me say I am a big fan of Transformers, NOT of the recent M. Bay movie crap but the old school stuff. Don't get me wrong I like the movies I just don't like to look of the robots or the childish humor that Bay likes to make the robots do in his movies. Here a picture of some of the Bumble Bee Transformers, I have a lot more Transformers but they have nothing to do with this thread.


With that said, I love this car and wouldn't trade it for anything EVER. Now this car was not ordered by me it was all done by my wonderful wife. How it was brought to my attention was on Transformers website that GM would be making a Transformers edition Camaro "I was looking at Challengers at the time" and I mentioned it to my wife. She asked which one I would rather have and I said it would not really matter I would enjoy either one, the whole conversation was irrelevant due to our money situation anyway. Well I followed up with my dealer to find some more information "my brother had an IOM Camaro currently on order with them" and I was told when they could start taking orders and that I should put mine in ASAP. I told my wife what new information I found out and it destroyed the idea of us getting the Transformers edition due to the time constraints and the funds to back it up. Life went on an I figured I would just get a Challenger in the following year. Well as you can guess the wife went to the dealership and ordered the car anyways in June without saying anything to me. Now when November came around the car came in, and two months before she expected it she wasn't sure how she was going to tell me. She decided that she was just going to tell me and see what I thought about it before she went through with the purchase. She started off by saying "I ordered you something and it has come in earlier than what I expected" being November I assumed it was something for Christmas and either needed my help getting it into the house or wanted to hide it in a room and didn't want me to use the room until after the holiday's were over. Then she just told me she got me a Transformers Camaro, I'm like OK but I don't really like the movie toys did you get a good deal on it? "No" she says the real Camaro edition car I'm like she says "If you want to see it, its at the dealership now" well what the hell we waiting for then. When I saw it, it was and I was like at my wife and a couple days later I was like to my younger brothers Stang.


Here are some pictures of my mods so far to Bee.


Added some vinyl to the side gills got them off of e-bay from a awesome seller. Todd Holloway

I highly recommend him!



Added an SS bracket above the SS for my Autobot symbol, and painted the bowtie to match the one from the movie.



Painted the rear bowtie to match and added a Autobot symbol to the back as well. Like my Personal Tag? Wife's idea, she's so smart.



Added floor mats and the MGW shifter knob. Also a little autobot symbol to the steering wheel. I have extra's if anyone is interested.



Key plate from Emblem Pro's, thanks again Roger looks great. Also Roger is making me a plate for my engine cover I will post pictures once I get it.




Other items that I have just waiting on is my yellow interior from GM Parts Direct as well as headrests. I plan on sending my headrests to have an Autobot symbol embroidered and SS done in red to match the floor mats. Also I have had 5" Magnaflow exhaust put on the car since the pictures, I will update with pictures next good weather weekend. Also getting the engine cover painted to match the car.


Edit:

Got my new headrests back from the embroider.



I still have to get some photo's of them in the car.



Edit #2:

Added and windshield banner and picture of my new exhaust.








UDPATE: 3-29-12

Too cool! I love your car and your wife is AWESOME! I too had to talk my husband into buying this car. But once he saw it, he fell in love and he hasn't been the same since!

Headrests

So do you have a contact for the people that did the headrests for you? Looks great. I did a black transformer addition to my 2LT/RS. Just love what you did to yours.

Thanks I get a lot people asking about the headrest I need to contact the guy again see if I can get some shirts and hats made. I don't know if he is still doing embroidery because the last time I sent someone the information they never got theirs done. I will update my first post with his information when I find out if he is still doing them.
