Florida Today had a pretty cool picture in it today of a Nascar car with weapons on it I'm assuming. Not sure which transformer it is

yeah people are speculating that those are "The Wreckers" don't know much about them. but they're suppose to be autobots.

Sorry, reading this from the iPhone site which doesn't show many pics.
If the neighbors think you're the rebel of the neighborhood, embrace it and be the rebel. It keeps them wondering what you'll do next...

More photos of The Wreckers at KSC

haha...I can just imagine what the security guard would want to ask the driver, only to find none!  ;)
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

You mean narcotics?  The guard can find that inside an OPF.

Weapons?  Well...

It seems like quite a bit of the movie will take place at KSC rather than just a quick scene

not necessarily, chicago filming took about a month and that's the entire end of the movie from what they said (i think it was like a half hour) so the week in Kennedy, maybe 10 minutes? gotta think about how much filming they do over and over and dont use every piece.

Ah, the irony of that is that it's apparently not far from the truth.  From what I've heard, the Pentagon did establish a project to use Hollywood writers to create training scenarios (this has been reported in numerous places).  The problem was that after awhile, the project got rather removed from reality and just wasn't producing useful material.  It may still be going on, however.  So bringing in Michael Bay and having him waste everybody's time isn't far fetched.

The Title of TRANSFORMERS 3 Is “TRANSFORMERS: THE DARK OF THE MOON”

technically it's still speculation, although there is reason to believe it is it, i'm going to wait to see it from bay's mouth (or website)
