We all know just how much Michael Bay likes to use his movies as a form of "explosion therapy." Even for Bay, though, destroying 532 individual vehicles during the making of his third Transformers movie seems somewhat excessive.

How (and why) did he achieve something like this, and who put up all the cars? The budget, you're probably thinking, must have been huge, and you'd be completely right in saying that. But none of that money went on the explosion-bound cars, as they were all given to Bay and his team by the movie's insurance company for free - every single vehicle was flood-damaged, and were therefore considered to be worthless. Much like the movie that resulted from all this. Burn!
