    Sam's dad bought him a 1974. How is he going to explain to his father how he traded it up for a 2008? Hehe. I'm sure Mr. & Mrs. Witwicky must know now - either what happened to their $4,000 or that they have a 25 foot tall alien robot living with them out in their driveway.

    Most likely, BumbleBee might find something similar to the '74 in a junkyard and rip it off and have Ratchet restore it for Sam for everyday use. I can see him being the boy's guardian and companion, but maybe not making every milk run. Then again, it would be funny if Sam got a paper route for the next movie. "Advanced Visitor From Another Planet Journeys To Earth To Become A Paperboy." That'd make a great headline for Weekly World News.

    But in all likelihood, his parents figured it out. I just don't know how it would work out in every situation though: Sam and Mikaela could never really be alone in his car ;) 

    If Sam and BumbleBee disagreed on a movie at a Drive-In, Sam might be sitting in the parking lot saying, "My car went to a different movie."

    And after what that dog did to Ironhide's leg, I don't think BumbleBee would want to drive to the veterinarian's.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that his parents know about BB, the autobots, and like...everything that had happened.

    Sam could just tell his parents he washed it and it worked wonders.

    For the amount of advertising that Bumblebee is indirectly doing for Chevrolet, I'm sure they would be willing to compensate Sam with a new one.

    Remember the scene where Sector 7 took them all in & Sam's mother said "if you hurt my dog I'm gonna kick your ass"? They pretty much know everything that happened.

    From the scenes during the credits with his parents unconvincingly saying "if there were aliens the government would tell us" They know what's up.

    Although I did think that when he first got his new form.

    Hey, I can see his Dad liking the idea.

    Alien, self-repairing robot, capable of driving himself, fixing himself, able to upgrade himself to the latest year's model just by driving past it, can fend off evil alien robot attacks and only cost $2,000.

    I suspect he was asking if there were any more for sale he could take off their hands. After haggling over the price of course. After all, they've got some serious mileage racked up, what with the wandering the cosmos and all. And is that whole Earth re-entry thing listed on the accident report?

    I would think they would tell them the goverment guys gave it to him in exchange for the '74 one. When they took it away because of the "national security crisis"

    Nah, if you watch through the end credits you know that they know what's going on. They're being interviewed in two scenes and when asked about alien visitors they get a little tongue tied and say the usual cleche 'government would tell us'/'government isn't hiding anything' lines.

    Also, there's another scene at the end where you see Starscream leave Earth's atmosphere...
