Transformers - and the Camaro - return

Everyone knows it's been a cruel summer for General Motors. What gets less press is the lone bright spot in the company's current situation: the new Chevrolet Camaro.

The muscle car stars in the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (out today), and it's also a hero in real life -- for while its parent company crumbles like a skyscraper swiped by Decepticons, the Camaro has been ordered by more than 25,000 people. Not bad for a car that was built to appeal to retro-minded gearheads.
