    While browsing seibertron.com I found an article that spoke about the TF movie and the inclusion of the Camaro and Mustang in the movie. The article played off the rivalry of the two cars and how that would be translated onto the movie.

    This got me thinking, what other 'car rivalries' exist today and how could those rivalries be reflected through TF mythology. The article mentioned the Dodge Charger.

    The movie is using Bumblebee as the Camaro and "Brawl" as the Mustang but who would you pick instead of these two characters. Who would you choose for a Dodge Charger? What other "rivals" exist for these cars? What other "rivalries" exist? For example, what car would be a good rival for the WRX? What about the Dodge Ram SRT-10, what truck would be a good rival for that model and what character to use?

    Personally, right off the bat, I'd say that Ford F150 might be a good rival for the Ram. Motormaster perhaps or... Ultra Magnus?

    A battle between a 1976 plymouth celebrity and a 1982 Geo Metro would be friggin' sweet.

    Loads with great potential, Jaguar (XJR, XKR) vs BMW (M5, M6), Toyota (Supra RZ) vs Nissan (Skyline, 300ZX) or even for the Aussies, Ford Falcon vs Holden Commodore.
    Or failing that all supercars compete with one another in one big rumble, Pagani vs Ferrari vs Lambourghini vs Koeniggsegg vs Bugatti vs Maserati etc etc.

    Pffft not even!

    Its more like Lamborghini vs Ferrari

    Hell thats the only reason why Lamborghini went into making exotic cars was because Enzo Ferrari blew off Feruccio Lamborghini when he made comment to his personal ferrari's transmission.
