    For anyone that might be interested, there's been a curious phenomenon i noticed in my life outside TFW2005... in the Real World *shudders*; I'm in Australia and so we don't have much in the way of Chevrolets BUT what we do have are cement trucks.

    When I'm driving and I see the fat drum of a cement truck I get so excited and be all like, "omg omgz its mixmaster! plz to transform u r so cool!!!" and silently enjoy the moment. Sometimes I smile, too.

    This happen to any1 else? Anyone care to admit this happens to them aswell? (doesn't just have to be cement trucks)

    I saw a Mixmaster coloured cement mixer in Eastwood today. No giant Decepticon logo had been stenciled on, unfortunately.

    This is all your fault.

    I will admit that when I see a paticularly impressive silver sports car I hope and pray that it will Transform in Movie Jazz. Never does...

    Although whenever I see a construction vehicle now I'm going to be hoping and praying about that now. Thanks dude... Lol.

    Whenever I see the cars from the movie, my mind does jump to Transformers. If I'm with my g/f, who deals with this nerdiness :D , I'll squeal and say, "It's Bumblebee/Sideways/Optimus/Jazz/etc..."

    The day I see one of those Terek Excavators though, I might run the other way.

    The other day at lunch me and my colleagues were sitting the park out in front of the Houses of Parliament, when these 4 huge helicopters flew by, I said ''wouldn't it be cool if they just transformed into giant robots right now and landed here''. My workmates laughed at me but now I know i'm not the only one out there who thinks these things.

    When I went Christmas shopping last year, I pulled up to a stoplight and I realized that I was right next to a car that someone had painted to look like Barricade. It said, "State Security Agency" instead of "Police" but it had the "...to punish and enslave" thing on it and a Decepticon logo disguised as the police coat of arms thing. It took me a while to realize why this car looked so familiar but when I realized what it was, I yelled aloud and then avoided making eye contact with the driver...just in case.

    They could make a game out of this. Just imagine, you are going for a long car ride with a bunch of young transfans in the back who are yelling and screaming that they wanna be there already. You can just play I-Spy for Transformers! "I spy...a Bayverse Sideswipe!" "Wait, where?! A real Corvette, awesome!"

    It’s a little different for me; when ever I see a person dressed strangely, I hope they’re a time traveler from the future.

    In all honesty I'm planning on doing something similar to my car, maybe not as extreme as putting a huge autobot/decepticon logo on the hood, but something similar.

    believe me I feel the exactly the same.

    not just to cement mixers, but to all freight trucks.

    I am living in Australia too. My house is only next to a massive port loading zone. I got maybe hundreds trucks passed by in front of the house...every time when there is one driven by or parked near to my place, the first thing I do I will look directly to it and then look up into the sky above that truck picturing how tall it can be if it sudden transforms and stands up... it has been two years since the first movie but i just can't really stop doing that. LOL

    I always look at minivans, and think that if they transformed, they would be all soccer momish and instead of shooting missles, shoot orange wedges and Sunny D :)

    After the first film, I never looked at a soda-pop machine the same way again.
