Transformer optimus, Bumblebee, or A-Team? Such choices…

OK, so this is starcar news, really. I went to another auction to get my son a car for the summer. (see previous posts) So this time, I was just going to get a nice clean cheap car for him to get around in.

NO star cars. My son came with me and we did the shopping, looking over all the cars. He found a black hummer he liked, but that went for 20 grand. A bit out of his price range.

Then I spotted a yellow 2010 Camaro (aka bumblebee from transformers. SS version, all the do-dads, and alll Chris was going to get from this car was a photo. it went for 29 grand (plus 6 g’s in fees)

Let’s find something cheaper. So we looked around and there was Optimus prime sitting there, in his “Peterbuilt” disguise, and even though his paint was more purple than blue, a quick flame job and he would have been ready. Only 700,000 miles on him! As neither Chris or I could drive it or had the right licence, (and we were pretty sure mom wouldn’t approve of that as a “good milage get around town car” we moved on.

Optimus went for only about 9 grand!?!? Oh well.

So I was left in charge (always dangerous!) and the auction began. Made pals with the Camaro buyer who was a transformer fan (that’s the cheapest way to collect starcars btw!)

and all the cars went for at or over bluebook. even beat up police cars went for 2 to 3 grand!?!? So I had one last car that just might be in his price range.

After just a few bids, I got him a 1983 GMC van!

Of course I had to try the side door for an action exit to make sure it was the start of something big!

With the A-Team movie coming out in a few weeks, he and his pals are excited to transform this clean panel cargo van into a new starcar for starcarcentral.

RESPECT THE VAN! I PITY THE FOOL WHO DOESN’T DRIVE A STARCAR!

My Son’s A-Team is allready completely cast, now it’s just a matter of convincing one pal to get the mandinkin mowhawk haircut, and buy a LOT of gold chains…..

DA DA DA DAAAAAA, DA DA DA DA.
