transformers edition..

So the camaro I test drove a couple weeks ago was a 2ss manual transformers edition. I thought it was pretty cool, But I am a big fan of the movies only because of all the cool GM cars in it. The fact that the first one had a neat story to it made it better. But all my freinds think its borderline nerdy to drive one that looks exactly like the movie. I didnt thing so at first, but then I read some posts on here that agree with them, and am kinda in the middle now. I went from Gotta have it to sorta like it. Orange is my favorite color on the camaro. but I cant find any around here in orange with the options I want. But whats everybodys take on it? IM not a nerd, and I try my damnist to not be one. I hate star wars, star treck, lord of the rings, harry pottor, any of those stupid fads. I thought transformers was cool since it was all action and about cool cars and such. But I guess not.

If you want an orange transformers edition, do it. Just order an orange one with no stripes. Then get the parts from GM. The autobot fender symbols, the transformers stripes, the door sills, the center caps, and finally the arm rest.

All of these parts are available. I have all but the stripes, and the fender emblems on my RJT. I decided I was going for Cliffjumper and not Bumblebee.

I loved the yellow when the movie came out. When I ordered, I considered IOM but my BF told me to stick with yellow because I was talking about getting yellow for 2 years. I added the Transformer package @ 3 weeks after I ordered it. You've seen it so you know it's subtle enough that it doesn't "jump" off the car. I found a lot of people don't even notice the autobot logo under Camaro on the front fenders. It's probably borderline nerdy to about 1% of the people that will see it. More people love it than not and the reactions you get driving it around are indescribable and certainly worth the package.

IMO - get the TF and trade it for a 2011 IOM if you decide you don't like it.

This is a really good idea but not all of the parts are available. I've been trying to get a set since I got my car.

I had the same issue you do - I wanted that car the second I saw it in the films, before I even knew what it was....and when it came out and I was hoping to buy I knew I wanted the bumblebee....
Then I got hit with the realization that even tho it's hot I'd be associated with the film forever...did I want to do that? (Mind you this was before I knew there was a TE out...that would have made it a bit more awesome to ahve the yellow....)...I'm not a huge nerd (I heart alot of the things you list as 'nerdy' LOL - but I know next to nothing about the transformers universe aside from the hotass car in the flick )

I ended up falling in love with my RJT and I wouldn't trade her for anything....tho if I had the money I wouldn't say no to a TE one too...

Guess it just depends - can you see yourself driving a yellow car forever? (ok, for a while anyway) Do you always want to be associated with the movie??
If you don't have issues with either then go for it....

Part of me still wants one...but I heart my baby and won't trade her in...

Part no. 92242453. Has been on backorder since January. I'm told that GM may not produce or make available this part in future.

I personally wouldn't pay extra for Transformer badges but I am not going to put down someone that does.

Get what you want man. It is not about impressing anyone else. Who gives a s*** what they think.

Ok, get the standard black rally stripes, then get this font.

Create yourself a stencil, then spraypaint your vinyl in silver and be done with it

If I go for the transformers look I want an actual one optioned from GM since they only made 1500 of them. MY favorite colors are orange, yellow, and black in that order. I dont want red as my vette is victory red and I dont want them to copy each other. I love black but I had a black truck and it was dirty in hours after a wash. I love orange because Im a big dukes of hazzard fan and even though they had a dodge. Its still a coupe thats orange and looks awesome. My favorite color combo would be the inferno orange with black stripes on a black interior. My next favorite is the yellow with black stripes. And the dealer has two of those. One is a manual transformers edition and the other is a auto non transformers edition. Manual or nothing on this car. If I got orange I wouldnt put the badges on there as I hate that (just IMO of course) kinda like people putting gt badges on a v-6 and what not. None of the dealers around here have an orange with black stripes with the options I want. Its either a 1ss, automatic 2ss, or v-6 version. I have never owned anything less than a v-8 in my life and im not going to start now

You can always get the stripes added later - have you asked any dealer about finding an orange one for you from another dealership/state and having them ship it to you??

I've seen that, it's not the same, I don't like it. Been trying to find a shop that can paint them on because I'm not crazy about the vinyl, but haven't had any luck there either. Thanks for the idea, though.

I added the transformers package to my black 2SS. My kids love it. I was driving past a high school the other day and had to stop at the crosswalk. 2 students pointed and laughed at the autobot emblems.

So yeah, could be nerdy. I'm too old to give a crap though and my 7yr old thinks its amazing.

Don't let other people decide what you like! I purchased a Camaro closest to the movie car that I could afford. Why! because I thought it was the coolest car I have ever seen. I am 48 years old. Go with what makes you happy.
