’Original’ Bumblebee Camaro is going up for auction
To be clear, the original Bumblebee was a Volkswagen Beetle so we’ll get that matter-of-fact statement out of the way.
What we are talking about of course was the first incarnation of Bumblebee in the movie Transformers and if you’ve seen the movie, you know it’s not the 2010 Chevy Camaro but rather a dilapidated looking 1977 Camaro. We’re saying all of this because it’s been brought to our attention that the said car – yes the one that chased Sam Witwicky while he was riding his mother’s pink bicycle – is now up for sale.
The car, naturally, is far from peak condition, but it does have all the necessary equipment to make it functional. Plus, it also comes with a certificate of authenticity from Bay Films, which means that this specific car was, in fact, the one that was used in the first movie and the very same one Mikaela (Megan Fox) called a ‘piece of crap Camaro’forcing Bumblebee to upgrade his model.
We don’t have a price on the car yet, but we’re hearing that it’s being sold for around $12,000 – to $15,000. Considering the world-wide fame – or notoriety – this car was able to garner from being in the movie, we think that it’s a bargain worth looking into.
