Bumblebee Movie - New Photos From Santa Cruz Shooting Location Show Off VW Bug, Datsun ZX, and More Vintage Cars
As it turns out, Santa Cruz is within driving distance of BaCon! So he's down there now, snapping photos of the Bumblebee
set. So we're posting his first round of recon photos along with the info he's gathered so far, plus a list of some of the classics cars on location we could ID. Keep reading!
The shooting has so far taken over the boardwalk, and shooting is expected to take place in the amusement park through Friday or possibly Monday. BaCon's spotted a black Datsun 300ZX - also sold in Japan under the "Fairlady Z" name that Prowl, Bluestreak, and Smokescreen's Nissan 280ZX was sold under. A blue Chevy Monte Carlo was also seen.
BaCon is still on the scene, so hopefully we'll have more info and photos for you as it becomes available!
