Datsun 510 Spotted on Transformers 3 Set

There are many reasons why Michael Bay’s entire Transformers franchise should be buried under a volcano and ignored for a million years, but perhaps there is one glimmer of hope for JNCers looking for an excuse to watch this, uh, movie. A photographer has caught Shia LaBeouf with a lowered Datsun 510 on the set of Transformers 3 in Milwaukee. Also, someone puts their foot in the engine bay, whatever that means.

UPDATE: Rumors on the Internets now say this is either Bumblebee (yellow/black stripe paint scheme, “Bee-yotch” air freshener) or a doppleganger. Videos and pictures below the fold.

    I just pray to God that they dont destroy it in the movie, like so many other Hollywood films do to old cars….

  2. E-AT_me says:

    so… is this the new bumble bee?

  3. Komeko says:

    But will one good car lift the garbage story and pathetic acting up to a level that anyone could stand to sit through a Transformers movie?

  4. cesariojpn says:

    After the snub for the VW Bug in the first film, and the Twins “street slang,” do I really want a third reason to hate the franchise?

    By the Matrix, simple as hell formula: A cast of Robots in Disguise, plus a token Human character. Not a cast of one-sided human actors, with a special guest appearance by the Transformers.

    Fuck You Bay, Fuck You!!

    I’m thinking its Bumblebee under-cover…

  6. solidstripe says:

    Can see the prices of 510’s go up alarmingly straight after the film is released as 14 year olds try desperatly to get their lil mits on them.

  7. Komeuppance says:

    510’rs… your days are numbered.


  8. solidstripe says:

    And what’s the bet it “upgrades” to a brand new GT-R? Can’t exactly seeing it upgrade into a 2010 Bluebird Slyphy ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Shouldn’t it be a hako then?

  10. bert says:

    All you guys spewing about how bad the movie will be, the purity of the 510, and how Bay will ruin it, the price’s going up in the future and the “OMG! I hope they don’t destroy the poor car!” Your’e missing the main point, wich is, WHO’S THE HOT BLOND CHICK IN THE WHITE DRESS!!!

  11. matt says:

    thx bert. i was waiting for that
    here she is victoria secret model turned actress

  12. Camshaft says:

    Heavens, she is quite ugly.

  13. Hakosuka says:

    So Kostamojen was correct.
    “Iโ€™m thinking its Bumblebee under-coverโ€ฆ”

    Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Patrick Dempsey and Bumblebee that’s disguised as a beat-up Datsun.

  15. Ben says:

  16. bert says:

    Ben- Get ready to pay a premium for a horde of ugly yellow 510’s with black stripes and mismatched old school dish’s, that you have to kick in the starter to get running. Hot chick in white dress sold seperately, batteries not included.
