    Alright guys so here is the story. Back in september of 2007 my foot was ran over by a forklift at work and every bone in my foot was shattered.
    fast forward 2 years and i am coming into a big settlement from the company.
    so i decided to get a new 2010 camaro because of the transformers movie and the fact that i am a ig collector. but i don't know which one to get. Do i get the bumblebee camaro ( yellow with black racing stripe ) or do i get the camaro black concept with a yellow racing stripe like the stealth bumblebee toy. can't decide so i need help. here are links to both cars pictures. let me know what you guys think i should do.
    thanks

    heres the link to see the regular edition of the camaro in bumblebee colors
    Chevrolet Camaro | 2010 Chevy Camaro Image Gallery
    and
    heres the link to the 2010 camaro black concept as well as the description.

    Chevrolet Camaro | Special editions of 2010 Camaro featured at SEMA Show
    Camaro Black Concept: It's hard to go unnoticed in a 2010 Camaro, but the Camaro Black Concept suggests a stealthy approach to street style. From its matte black-finished hood and ground effects to its dark wheels and red-glowing high intensity discharge headlamp halo rings, the Camaro Black Concept is a sinister-looking urban tuner vehicle.
    The Camaro Black Concept prowls the streets with the following equipment:

    GM Accessories Ground Effects Package and rear diffuser
    High intensity discharge headlamps with unique red "halo ring" color
    Revised, darker grille finish
    RS taillamps with dark-tinted lenses
    Color-matched exterior badging
    SS-model spoiler
    Matte Black hood finish
    Tinted glass
    GM Accessories 21-inch wheels1 with darkened finish
    Brembo Four-Wheel Disc Brake Package

    The interior also carries a slightly sinister ambience, with:

    Black chrome trim accents
    Dark-finished accents, including the shift knob, radio face, steering wheel ring, gauge trim and door handles
    Custom sill plates
    Leather-covered seats with gray accent stitching

    The Camaro Black Concept also features a Premium Audio Upgrade Package with Boston Acoustics speakers and amplifiers

    There's also the red with silver stripes camaro (cliffjumper), and Im sure GM will put out the typical white with blue stripes camaro, white with red stripes as well.

    I believe they're only offering white, black, and gray stripes, but i could be wrong. I'm sure yellow isn't a stripe color though, you'll have to get it done at a body shop, and that won't be cheap.

    its not that expensive depending on who you get to do it (well it depends on what you think is expensive I guess) and you dont have to have them painted on he could use vinyl and that's stuff is dirt cheap and if he does not like it he could remove it later on.

    I'd say ignore the movie and get something you really want, you can tag on an Autobot logo and boom fan character

    The black concept would make such a better KITT.

    If that's the case... you should go with the black concept Camaro and fashion it as your very own KITT.
