Holy Cheap Car Batman!

Over the years there have been many versions of the Batmobile in the Batman comics, TV shows and films. But my favourite will always be the truly iconic Batmobile that was used in the somewhat camp 1960s TV show starring Adam West. What have I learnt about that Batmobile recently that I never knew before?

Well I learnt that it was customised from an experimental Lincoln Futura that cost $250,000 to develop and was then sold to the shows producers for a nominal fee of $1. They in turn called upon car customiser extraordinaire George Barris. There will be a Batmobile documentary included on the DVD release of the Dark Knight Rises later this year.

I am not the sort of person that would collect cars but if I won millions on the lottery I would try and buy the 60s Batmobile or if that was not possible have one built for me. What do you think of this truly classic set of wheels? I really wish I had kept my toy version of it as well.

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
