    Hey -

    So I just got back from the Chicago auto show. First let me say that I cant wait to see Sideswipe in ROTF, this car is BEAUTIFUL (and Im a Ford Guy). I talked to the rep, here are a few details, most of which we already knew -

    1 - There was only 1 fully functional Corvette StingRay Concept created, the other 2 were shells.
    2 - This was created specifically for ROTF and will NEVER be produced

    The car that was there was a shell with no true interior but still it was gorgeous. Also the new Bumblebee Z28 is nice. The few body modifications are the only true change and the Chevy spokesperson also said the Z28 might be produced, all depends on the economy.

    The Bumblebee on display was a fully functioning Z28 and was sued in filming which was easy to see as the windshield was scratched to all hell and the car had a few nicks and dings on it. Still very impressive.

    Pics uploading now...

    Nice pics! I like the Auto Show in Chicago. Were you able to go in any of the featured movie cars?

    These are hot. Camaro, awesome as always. I'm digging Skids, but not Mudflap. The Stingray concept is sick, I just don't like the exhausts. Wish I could see these in person, guess I'll jsut have to settle for the LA auto show ;)

    The stingray is awesome apart from those 4 pipes on the back. Man why did GM's designers suddenly not become bland and unimaginative when they could very well go bust any time soon?

    When I saw the Chevy Volt, then took note that the character who turns into it is named Jolt, my first thought was "How appropriate... makes it easy for us to remember that Jolt is a Volt."

    Nice Corvette. Such a shame it was created only for ROTF and not going to be produced. Corvette fans are so going to want that car.

    well its actually known as the Stingray concept now and it was made to celebrate the anniversary of the corvette (or some other chevy annie I dunno) and it just so happens that its in TF2 (uber product placement) but sadly their are no plans for production but it might set the tone for the C7

    Actually not correct. This was designed on paper (or PC) for a tribute to the Stingray but got put on hold. Then after the success of TF 1, the producers and Chevy got together and the green light was given to produce 1 functioning version specifically for ROTF.

    Has nothing to do with product placement as this car is never going into production.

    The only reason this car saw the light of day was due to the success of the first Transformers movie.

    As far as the C7, it will share the body of whatever year Corvette is out when (and if) it is made as is the tradition of all the Corvette C series.

    Ah bummer tell me you filmed the footage of ROTF playing on the screen, the alternate trailer playing. I think you should post all this pictures in the CAS topic in the news section.
