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.
