Haha, I was trying to figure out what you were talking about before. I'm watching it right now. I think he's was joking or just being an ass.

From an article on the car: "To simplify, the bodies were chopped off the two 5.7-liter, LS1-powered GTOs while box frames of steel were welded up to compensate for the lost structure"

GM realizes this liability when providing cars for movies. I remember reading somewhere Arnold Schwarzenegger totaled 8 Corvettes while filming a movie.

joking? no
being an ass in front of the rustang faithful? yes
but he is right. ford does know how to build a car. built the same chassis from 79-04!
and they've perfected the live axle too

If you paid close attention to Sideswipe in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, you can clearly see that GM was giving us a sneak peak at what the C7 could look like. While not identical by any stretch, the resemblance is clearly not a coincidence. If I recall, Ed Welburn even discussed that in an interview. GM gave us a preview of the ZL1 front end in T3 so I don’t think there is a doubt that we will see some hints of new GM cars and specifically the Camaro in T4...

Even saw Steve Saleen ripping on it because it had a V6 (as if GM doesn't in fact have V8's.)
What are you 5 years old? Can you not use a search engine. You should try it before spreading false info.

There you have it, LS1(a v8 engine if you never heard of it) GTO provided by GM along with body panels.

If you watch the video posted above he does say it was a v6. It's wrong but it's what he says. Calm down.

Don't think this was the accident.

While transformers 3 was being filmed in Hammond Indiana (cline avenue bridge) an extra (woman) in a vehicle and a cable snapped and came through the window and hit her. She survived but was pretty messed up.
