Just reminded me of this. haha

That poor skyline. Lol

I noticed in one of those pics the rpm gauge is at about 3000 rpm, weird.

True this! Just like in TF1 when they have the hood of the '76 up, Megan Fox talks about having a double pumper carb on it (and in real life it had a awefull looking carb'd engine) but the cut scene in the movie showed a very clean fuel injected engine with a hildebrand looking intake set up...

They rarely ever car about the actual cars except when they are borrowing a prototype...

Transformers 4 will be shooting scenes inside GM's LDT assembly plant this Saturday and Sunday...

yeah that has nothing to do with the Sonic (who, I thought I read somewhere, is definitely one of the good guys?), just thought I'd throw that tidbit out there.

It's crazy seeing the difference in a car in an exterior, and a car while filming an interior scene.

Why does a transformer need redbull? WTF!

I mean Goodyear I get, VP I could understand, but I ain't seen no autobot or decepticon drinking no redbull.

If anyone finds out where you can get the fender flares from that car, please post.
I would love to have rally fenders on my car.
