Yes, that's right folks. Fresh off of last week's release of this summer's ultimate shift-your-brain-into-neutral, CGI-dominated, action-stuffed, Robogasm, the Transformers crew is auctioning off the 1977 Chevy Camaro that stole the show playing Bumblebee. You can be the envy of car geeks and movie buffs alike, and all for a good cause.

The proceeds of the auction are going to the Fisher House Foundation, which helps out veterans by building homes to accommodate the families of injured military personnel.

As of this writing, the price was just over $12,000 – a hell of a deal, even if the car was lambasted for being a beater by the oh-so-delectable Megan Fox. And considering that the star spent some time in the passenger seat, we'd consider paying top dollar for the upholstery.

Top tip JW!

      Does it come with the motor as seen in the movie?

      I think there's a reason this is being sold on eBay somewhere than "eBay Motors"...if you study the picture briefly, you'll see this car is built on/attached to a trailer. It no doubt has no functioning drive train, but was pulled behind a camera car for close-ups and such. For the current price of over $24k, I think I'd find my own Camaro beater, paint it to match AND put in the requisite engine, and still have money left over (and I'd avoid the $14 shipping charge!!).

      The 1976 Camaro had a top engine choice of 160 HP but the 1977 had a choise if 185 cause of the Z28 option. Oddly enough. The Firebird Trans Am had a 200 HP engine option with its Pontiac engine and won car of the year for 1976.

      I thought they were 1976 Camaros?

      Anyways, from what I've read, both 76/77' Camaros came with Chevy crate engines that were good for around 300 HP.

      I liked the movie (what a real surprise!), but I'd have to pass on that junker unless it really transformed into a laser-toting giant robot. Even then...$10,000 would be my highest bid.

      Personally I was hoping Brigade would tear Bumblebee apart, but that's just the Mustang Fanboi speaking.

      I easily slid my brain into neutral for this flick. Good times.

      I liked how Megan Fox referred to the "high rise double pumper" on the Bumblebee's very obviously fuel-injected SBC. There was nothing even *resembling* a carburetor under that hood.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I think they just wanted miss fox to say "double pumper" while leaning over looking at an engine.... hehe

        She's hot so does it really matter?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Of course not. I'd give her and E for Effort and then an F for... Fun. ;)

        I'm just surprised GM let such an obvious car-related flaw into their commercial/movie.

      Will this have the engine that the movie car had? Fully built it looked like? Regardless of what the car's exterior looked like, the engine bay was pretty clean.

      Someone needs to tell the author of the auction that "penultimate" means "second to last" and not "super-ultimate."
