    I've seen it described as a 74 Camaro in a lot of different places. Was that the year that particular model of Camaro was introduced?

    It is the first year of that body style .
    Only real differences are is the back window is square not a wrap around ,
    and the door panels are different .

    Will post pics soon just sorting threw the about 8gbs of pics me and my friends took .

    I only finished my "Beaterbee" in November of last year .
    I bought it in the summer of 2007 after loosing out on the 77 from the movie that was sold on ebay .

    It was the first showing for them together and was extremely well received .

    I was working so much on my 77 that my 2010 Camaro only has 1506 kms and I have had it for almost a year now .

    Very nice cars. I always wanted a car that was once a transformer... sadly, closest I could come is my new (well, used, I think it was a lease) Chevy Cobalt... Which TF07 Swindle was, but mine's an 08, 4-door, and white. ;)  Also, a hell of a lot cooler than the toy... lol

    Thanks , I was tempted to dent it up , spray primer , slap some bondo on the quarter panel and even spray it over with a light coating of white ( the way they " Custom faded " the movie cars ) .
    My only problem was my car was a Florida car all original and it had "naturally fadded paint" but was rust free and straight .
    So it would be a shame to trash the poor car.

    I wanted to leave it all road grimmy for shows to still kinda have the same effect . But the Toronto Auto Show made me shine my beaterbee up for the show :(

    I never remember the numbers. I thought Bumblebee has been a 78 Camero, 2008 concept and then 2010 concept (only just googled to see what concept meant in this case).
