Fanboys in motion: Inside Line drives pre-op Bumblebee

There's a movie coming out on July 4, 2007, and you might have heard of it. It's called Transformers. In case you haven't heard of it, it's about an epic battle between giant, impossibly sophisticated mutating robots fighting over the source of all life. One of those robots, Bumblebee, is a 1976 second generation Camaro -- an impossibly unsophisticated car. The movie will explain.

In the mean time, Inside Line got some wheel time with the slightly enhanced Autobot, who looks like he could have started his acting career as an extra in The Dukes of Hazzard. The original 4-cylinder was swapped out for a 350-hp 5.7-liter V8, but that and the other mods aren't outrageous, and don't really alter the fact that it's still a beat up old yellow Camaro. Actually, though, the car sounds like it'd be kinda fun -- especially the line locks. Inside Line has a bunch of pictures to go with, and while the '09 has a lot more obvious cool, the '76 looks like it has a lot more character. (No pun intended.) And it would need to -- Bumblebee hooks the lowly Shia up with uber-fox Megan. Let's see if you can do that with your yellow '76 Camaro.
