  • So, how does it look in your garage?

    High octane

  • Laugh I wish,I've loved that car since I was a kid. That's some stupid money for a car.

  • Who was the seller? Did Barris own it?

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

  • Which Batmobile?

    I.Y.A.A.Y.A.S.

  • It was the first Batmobile built for the series,It was a lincoln futura concept car that as used in a Glen Ford movie and then sold to Barris for $1.00 to be made into the Batmobile.I watched the auction and it was nuts! There was a total of six carsbuilt but this one is the original.

    don;t throw that away,i can use it!

  • The guy who bought it said" I will tear down a wall and put it in my living room"Indifferent

  • 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.
