Stupid money, maybe, but the bottom line is either you want it or you don't.

I am sure I will get hammered for this---I watched the series back in the day but I have never built or owned a Batmobile kit.  I confess, I have never seen ANY of the Batman movies.  I DO still have some Batman comics from the 60's.  I did build the Fireball 500 and Thundercharger if it helps clear my name any.

My wife and I have worked and sacrifeced our entire life.I thought we had made it to "middle class" status. Having watched the Barrett-Jackson Auction, I realized that with all the disposable income out there to buy collectalbe cars.....we are 1 meal away from being homeless.Laugh

Back in 1958...I just can't recall how bored we must have been without a computer,Play station, Smart Phone,X-Box and 270 HD cable TV stations. We only had playthings that required building, creativity, imagination, artistic skills, and physical exertion.

You and your wife are fine Dennis Cool.

That was some of the 1% you were watching bid Thumbs Up.

Remember. The wealthy have just as many problems as the rest of us. They just have more money to make themselves feel better Laugh Laugh Laugh.
