    I don't like Mustard yellow on a car. Maybe a nice Black/Blue/Silver would make that car rock?

    Meh, not that nice.

    What really got me is this:

    Uh, what are the "so many horrible things" he did with Sideswipe? Sideswipe was a minor character in the movie and when he did do stuff he was utterly badass.

    Even standing still he looks badass and dangerous.

    There aren't any. It's nothing more than yet more anti-Bay whining.

    alright, by now i'm sure we have all come to the conclusion his movies are extremely polarizing to the fans. Not a surprise someone would spit on Bays films yet again:lol .

    Other than taking shots at Michael Bay, this has nothing to do with Transformers. Moved.

    Yuck. Besides, only Ferrari's can be yellow, and only if it's Ferrari Yellow.

    Not worth getting upset over. The whole article is written in over-the-top style for entertainment purposes. The swipe at Bay was in the same vein, and besides, what they're saying here is that Bay actually has better taste than to go with something like this.

    Looks nice but I wouldn't want it seeing how the payment on it would kill me and the mileage on it.

    The ebay listing made me LOL. That thing is a monstrosity and not a good "replica" at all; it honestly looks cheap and crudely done. I just looked at my pictures from the 2010 Denver Auto Show (where the real StingRay made an appearance) and uh... just wow.

    Compare this to the "replica":

    I definitely wouldn't pay $40,000 for that yellow POS. But that's just me.

    That's not 'movie style', that's 'hideous cartoon' style.

    why couldn't a company offer a body kit or some thing (like how you can buy replica Shelby Cobras) that would just allow a Vette owner to make his own Sideswipe?

    ever since i held the toy in my hand, i have been wondering how a company like Chevrolet can produce the BB Camaro, but seem to think the Vette concept wouldn't fly off the lots.

    it is the first Vette design i have seen since the earliest Stingrays of the 60s that i have fallin in love with.
    it's really as close to a batmobile you can get (if bought in Black) sans pop out guns and a jet engine.

    as for this auction/article...if the car had been built better (QC was top notch) the article should have to keep its snarky-ness to a minimum.

    in all honesty, it would be interesting to see a body kit of G1 Sunstreaker...

    This person seems to have no idea what he's talking about. Nothing like the good old internet as a forum to allow people to shit on everything in the world, though.
