    Oh if we're counting just regular Yellow Cameros I've seen SO many Bumblebees. There was also one one guy I overheard him calling his daughter Makala and thought damn this dude is really into Transformers but turns out he had no idea. Never actually saw the movie, he just liked the car. And his wife named the little girl so it's just pure coincidence that she happen to have the same name as Megan Fox's character.

    Oh, and I've seen a few G1 Bumblebee's too... and I guess new movie Bumblebee since he now has the same vehicle mode as G1. I'm not sure who owned it but when I was a kid the parking lot by our house always had a yellow VW parked in it. Oddly now that house is a parking lot and the parking lot that was there is a fire station.

    There's also one time, I wish I had a camera on me to take a picture but there was a VW and a Camero parked right next to each other at Wal Mart. The VW was the wrong year as it was one of the newer style bugs but was still kinda funny seeing them parked right next to each other.

    I've also seen Tracks in the real world a few times... sort of... most of the time when I spot a car from Transformers it's the wrong color for that character. I think I may of only seen a true Tracks once, most of them are typically black rather than the blue he should be.

    I've also seen a lot of vans that could be G1 Ironhide but they're never red. I have seen Movie Ironhide... all the freaking time cause black GMC trucks are quite common around here. I think I've just become more aware of them since 2007 but they've always been around.

    Saw a movie Jazz once too... in a very unusual location... made me question how they could afford a brand new car like that but some how also qualified for food stamps.

    I've seen movie Optimus and Sideswipe cars in person. I've driven next to a Bumblebee edition Camaro. And I drive the A-02 black Fairlady Megatron, if that counts.

    I met Bumblebee (Transformers Promotional Version) at the North American Auto Show in 2010, and took a picture with him. Today, I drive a very similar 2013 Chevy Camaro. He's not officially licenced or anything, but he is yellow with black rally stripes, and looks pretty close to his appearance from the first movie.

    I have seen the original vehicles of all five Autobots of the new team (in Paramount garage and during London filming of TF5), plus Hot Rod and Barricade:)  I also have seen 1974 Camaro similar to Bumblebee's one in TF1 (in Saint-Petersburg car museum)

    I have met and sat inside ROTF Bee & AOE Bee. Met DOTM Sideswipe, DOTM Megatron, and have also seen the Chevrolet Sonic rally car up close. I daily drive a 2015 Bright Yellow/Black Rally Stripes combo Camaro, with the official GM Autobot Fender Emblems. Lots of kids and adults call it Bee :) 




    That is so cool. I knew he has the Optimus Prime from the auction and Ed Welburn told me Hendrick has a TLK Bee Camaro. I've read he had some of the Wreckers, but I totally had no idea he has DOTM & AOE Bumblebees! Wow! I'm so shocked on how cool that is!! What a true treat to be able to see his private collection AND meet the other Transformers movie vehicles!

    I went to the Lincoln monument and all I could think about was how big Megatron was to sit in the throne like the monument is HUGE

    Bit more old school, but I’ve seen plenty of G1 Prowl and co around: the Datsun 280ZX was fairly popular in Australia.

    A few brave souls even started dropping Skyline GTR engines in them :p

    I saw RotF during premier weekend at the Arclight theatre in Hollywood. Most of the Autobot vehicles were parked on the side in the promotional display area. That was along with the lobby having several display cases full of props and costumes. I got to see the actual Matrix.

    Ironhide was BIG.

    Arclight is awesome.

    Bee, Jazz, Ironhide, and Skids. It's amazing how big the Topkick is.

    Nice, I'm Air Force too!

    I've seen a few aircraft that match Transformers alt modes, to include the Sikorsky MH-53 Pave Low (Blackout/Scorponok since he technically transformed into the engine), F-22 Raptor (Bayverse Starscream), F-15 Eagle (G1 Starscream/Seekers/Air Raid), F-16 Falcon (TF Prime Starscream/G1 Skydive), A-10 Thunderbolt (G1 Powerglide), F-4 Phantom (G1 Fireflight/Bayverse Blitzwing), and the Harrier (G1 Slingshot). Also V-22 Ospreys, which did get TF toys but not an actual character on screen.

    I would like to see the SR-71 Blackbird (Bayverse Jetfire) but I can't recall if I ever did in person; perhaps I did as a kid when I was younger visiting the Smithsonian on family vacation but I forgot?

    I've seen Barricade's alt mode Saleen Mustang a handful of times but not one with actual police markings. I do own a black Mustang that was partly inspired by how badass Barricade was. :D  And of course, Bumblebee's yellow Camargo with black stripes is pretty ubiquitous on the roads in America. I've seen his G1 VW Beetle alt mode in yellow here and there.

    In Japan, I've seen older Datsun/Nissan Fairlady cars that resembled G1 Prowl/Streak. Nissan GT-R and Fairlady 370Z for Alternity Transformers too.

    Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take a photo of it but I once saw an orange 1980 Chevrolet Corvette. (G1 Tracks)

    I once saw a Bumblebee deco Camaro (they're a rare sight here in the UK) which my friend insisted was a Mustang :rolleyes:

    Plenty of yellow Camaros with black stripes here in SoCal. They're always an ugly, repulsive lemon yellow, though. There's the occasional Corvette C7 though, which is always a treat.

    Saw an SLS AMG parked outside a Dollar Tree once, not quite silver like Soundwave, more of a Jazz gray. Actually wish he was that color after checking it out in person. That thing has a HUGE hood.

    I've seen a few Aventadors, a gray 458 Italia, and possibly an Audi R8, but never got a good look at them because they were driving past. :/

    EDIT: Oh yeah, always a surplus of black Mustangs, but naturally no custom police cruisers. But hey, generic black Mustang is my headcanon Evasion mode for Barry, so it counts for me. :D

    I just remembered. A superfan brought his customizesd G1 Ratchet styled van to my local theatre for one of the movies, part 1 or 2 I can't remember. He had a speaker set up to play voice clips. There was even a model Ravage sitting on top. He must've had some connections at the theatre because it was displayed right next to the box office in between the entrance.

    I saw it driving around the neighborhood later that night with the siren lights flashing. Pretty cool.

    I took a few pics, but that phone was ancient and died and I never got around to setting up a proper account to transfer them off of there? :(
