    I suppose this would still be considered a rumor until we can verify it ourselves, but this is a very reputable source.

    I expected something like this, not like I have a prayer in Hades of winning though.

    Worth a short. I hate GM but it's hard to complain about winning a car. I still think Bumblebee should have been a Dodge Superbee >.> silly GM....

    It's worth a shot to enter, but, I'm not going to put too much hope into winning it. I'd probably end up selling it if I did win it anyways :D .

    But I thought these weren't actual cars...so is it still okay to drive it on the road or is it just a display piece?

    The one in the movie was the "concept" car. The contest is for the production vehicles that will be made based on the concept car. So, yes, it'll be OK to drive.

    What interests me the most is how they put "Bumblebee Camaro". That almost leads me to believe that there will be a "Bumblebee Edition".

    To be accurate, the one(s) in the movie were specially made functional props by Saleen using molds from the concept car mounted on a 2006 GTO/Monaro chassis. They were as close as one could get to a functional Camaro, but not road legal.

    The contest versions will be modified production models and thus okay to drive - unless GM has fast-tracked production, expect the prizes to be delivered sometime late next year or the year after.


    Assuming the movie production schedule (and release date) gets pushed back, its quite possible by the time they get around to filming the second movie, GM will be able to provide real 2009 Camaros for them to use.

    If so, then being a completist for the movie line has to be one of the most expensive hobbies ever, given there's already an Ironhide edition of the Topkick ;)

    Man ... another contest open only to US residents. :( 

    Anyone willing to help me enter.... you'll only have to ship me the car if I win. :p 

    Cool contest ... I think the only way I'd drive a Camaro is if I somehow win one.

    I was about to write down... " Of course only for residents in the USA ", but those words are already posted on the main page. It makes me sad once more to see good contests only being held within some country and not world wide. To poor to take the big step. :( :cry :thumbdown

    And THAT is why I don't collect non-transforming Transformers. ;) 
    Though the Robot Heroes keep growing on me...


    Remember everyone, you have to be REALLY careful with these contests - if you win the car, you STILL have to pay taxes on it (and insurance of course :)  ). If I won, I would definitely sell it, but I'm not sure I could afford the taxes before that.
