Transformers is the epitome of every mecha lover’s dream; after all, what’s cooler than cool cars that can transform into even cooler robots? Unfortunately, this morphing technology exists only in science fiction. For now, people in the real world will have to make do with the non-transforming vehicles. For anyone wanting to give away their old cars as car donations in San Francisco, and buy the latest “Transformer” rides, Neil Miller for Film School Rejects lets you meet the new cars of the upcoming movie Transformers 4.
From a completely new character played by a sleek green Corvette Stingray to the awesomely named 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP, there are many new toys to drool over in the newest installment of the successful movie series. The Pagani Huayra, aptly named after the Andes’ ancient god of wind, zooms into the movie screen from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds, while the Hound from Oshoksh Defense boasts its ruggedness and military might. There’s also the graceful and incredibly expensive $2.4-million Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse, and a more subdued, less masculine Freightliner 2013 Argosy, which has people speculating on who this new truck will be alongside Optimus Prime.
Speaking of Optimus Prime, the great leader of the Autobots gets a custom upgrade from Western Star, sporting wicked flames that should warn any Decepticons to get out of his way. Of course, the most famous and most loved Autobot, Bumblebee, gets a makeover as well, with not one but two new looks in the new sequel. People get old and new school with Bumblebee’s 1967 Camaro style and his “final jewel in the Transformers 4 crown” 2014 concept design, giving his loyal fans something to scream about in the premiere.
Sadly, not everyone would be able to simply trade up for these special vehicles. Still, that doesn’t mean you can’t stock up on good karma while making a car donation in San Francisco because you never know what cars are right around the corner for you. What’s more important, though, is to make sure your old clunker is going to the right place. After all, the last thing you want to do is to donate your car to an illegitimate company.
When looking for a car donation company in California, make sure the business is registered with the California Attorney General’s Office as a commercial fundraiser. Aside from this, you can check out the Better Business Bureau’s records to see if the business has low ratings or a history of bad complaints marring its records. To give one example of a reliable car donation company, take a look at Harold’s Car Donation Service.
In the end, donating a car is a charitable venture, going a long way towards assisting someone else. Just remember that what goes around, comes around. If you give up your old car for a new cause, maybe you’re about to drive in a much cooler one soon.
