That’s all fine and dandy but what does that have to do with the auto show? Well, both Sideswipe and Bumblebee make special appearances at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show. In fact, a 17 feet tall, 13 feet wide fully transformed Bumblebee stands watching over the attendees making sure nothing jumps off.

In addition, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Concept makes a strong presence. It’s essentially an evolutionary interpretation of the 1963 Stingray.
