Transformers Car Lot

One of the greatest trilogies in the past few decades is the Transformers trilogy. The box office giants have brought in hundreds of millions and catapulted Shia LaBeouf to superstar status. I'm not a huge fan of fictional stories where machines rule all, but Michael Bay does a good job giving these characters likeable personalities and creating an intriguing storyline.

If you can think back to the first Transformers, you will recall the late Bernie Mac was a car dealer that sold Shia's character a yellow muscle car that would soon transform into Bumblebee. Bumblebee is an awesome character who protects Shia and makes the viewer wish they had a similar guardian. Imagine a loyal dog that could smash, shoot and shred enemies.

The pictures above are of that car lot where we first see Bumblebee. Fun fact, this spot is just around the corner from the Wedding Singer house where Robbie lives in his sister's basement.

This location is at:
900 Morada Place
Altadena, CA

Below is a picture of the school where Shia gives his presentation in the beginning of the movie. He looks outside to see his father waiting for him to head to the car lot. The cruise to the lot and are greeted by Bernie Mac, as we discussed above.
