The Chevy Camaro Bumblebee Edition

I just saw the new Transformers movie and all I can say is, if I were to buy a car right now, I would head straight to GM for the Chevy Camaro Bumblebee Editionβ€”so cute. Yes, girls decide on car purchases based on cuteness. My last car before I moved to New York was a silver Chevrolet Optra. I got it for sentimental reasons. When I sold it though I said I would never buy a car again and just use public transportation, since I was moving to NY anyway (where everywhere is a subway ride away). Plus, I’m so lazy to drive these days. Although if I decide to move to the West Coast, I’ll have to start driving again. Oh well.

A new car is definitely out of the budget right now. A regular Camaro goes for USD 23,000. I can’t seem to pull up Google search results on how much the Transformers version would cost. According to MotorAuthority.com, production of the Bumblebee Camaro started today, June 24, and orders for the car opened first of the month and will continue throughout December.

Anyway, I had fun at the movie. Megan Fox was superhot as expected and everyone had their game faces on. Jon Turturro was hilarious. It was also amazingly Hollywood how they were able to incorporate Shia Lebouf’s broken hand (from a real-life car accident) into the film. And of course, the Autobots and Decepticons were just awesome to watch.

UPDATE 06/26/09: Correction, everyone. Adam Denison of Chevrolet Communications left a comment saying they haven’t announced a Bumblebee edition, but one can get a yellow Camaro with black stripes easily. That’s still good news, right?
