BRIDGEND CLASSIC CAR SHOW

Bumblebee The Transformer in Swansea

Bumblebee is a fictional robot superhero character from the Transformers franchise. In most versions, Bumblebee is a small, yellow (with black stripes) Autobot with most of his alternative vehicle modes inspired by several generations of the Chevrolet American muscle cars (with the live-action film versions being very real Camaros: the original vehicle mode was based on a classic European Type 1 Volkswagen Beetle). The characters and related events are described, below, using in-universe tone. He is named after a genus of bee which inspired his paint scheme.

Hundreds of residents and tourists descended on Newton Road in the Mumbles for their annual summer festival.
