    Its like asking, "what would you perfer? Yellow Spandex?" only witout the snarkiness of Cyclops and spandex. I, personally like both versions of the vehicles but if you asked me what my favorite was, it would be the 1977 Camaro. I bristled like a cat when Mikaela called it a "piece of crap Camaro". All it needed was a little LTC.

    What's your opinion? Do you perfer The 2008/9 or 1977 model or both variants?

    I like the 77 better simply because the 08 model does not look as good as ealier concept models had been shown to look

    I like the 77 model. It made Bumblebee more of an underdog. And besides all the 77 version of BB needed was a new paint job, and he'd look really Nice!

    '09 = homage to '69.

    '69 beats the pants off '74-77, whatever the hell it is.

    '09 FTW.

    neither. the 77 camaro is not a favorite of mine, and the new camaro in the movie was a pontiac GTO with a fiberglass camaro shell. it IS a nice shell though.

    I prefer the semi-classical look of '77 Bumblebee, all he needs is another custom paintjob.

    The Concept Camaro is beautiful, and when transformed Bumblebee's chest didn't look as cluttered.

    So what you're saying is that Bumblebee's new alt mode was a Monaro in a party dress?

    Yes, that's what he's saying. I gather that the Holden Monaro is the Australian version of the US's Pontiac GTO.

    I would take either car, but definetly paint them. Yellow is nasty...

    Actually my understanding was it was the other way around, the Monaro being built in a factory in Adelaide and then shipped and sold in the US under the Pontiac brand. Maybe I misread the article on said car....


    Either way, the Monaro is much sleeker looking car.

    While the concept camaro is sexy looking, my favorite might be the '77. I'd love to get one for myself.

    I like the Concept better, more sleek, not saying that the '77 isn't nice, I want a car like that, but my dad hates any car that's not a Toyota
