Time to sell the lightsaber collection.
I wonder how expensive insurance would be for that
well i know what i'm getting when i have a mid life crisis
The owner of the company is a friend of mine.
From hanging out over at the '66 Batmobile messageboard where this is a common question,from what I understand, the insurance is based on the "donor" vehicle VIN number which is usually and older Lincoln.
So in other words not as bad as you may think.
These cars are showstoppers in person!!!!
That's my favorite car of all time! $150K is, unfortunately, out of my price range.
Is the licensee the same guy that goes by the handle "Batmobile Broker" or is it somebody else?
For the past two years Monstermania in Cherry Hill, NJ has had one on display outside of the building. Wonder if it's the same people?
The DVD player ruins the authenticity for me. Shouldn't it have an 8-track.
I am DEFINITELY getting one of these when I win the lottery.
Okay this is all kinds of awesome!
Soon as I win the lottery I'm buying one!
But to be serious for just a smidgen, I wonder if there would be any concern about having a red flashing light on top of your non police/emergency vehicle?
I'm sure the police would turn a blind eye to it though- or maybe not?
Would it have to be covered up while travelling on the road? I don't think "just leaving it turned off" counts.
Would like to hear what the police officers around here think.
Sorry if I sound like a worry wart- I'm just curious is all.
Don't get me wrong though- I love this car! And I was serious about buying one if I win the lottery.
How cool is that?? Thanks for sharing that info...
It would be so cool to drive-up to the drive-thru with that!
Big congrats to Mark, and everyone else at FF! Heh, I remember him when he worked at the Tinderbox tobacco store in LaFayette Square mall!
Not street legal in Texas, no windshield wipers.
I absolutely LOVE this car! When I was around three years old, I had a toy Batmobile, I think it was a hot wheels...and I played with that thing for hours. Then I had my mom pin a towel around my neck, and I would put on my Batman and Robin shirt and run up and down my block singing the Batman theme song all the while clutching that car...thinking oh yes....one day it will be mine. I can be Batman Yeah I know, but chicks digged it...I got my first girlfriend at age three
I think I need to sell my entire comic book collection.
Can you rent?
Ok... I want one
A couple of years ago I was driving my kids to the coast and they were watching the 60s Batman movie in the back of the car. Right as the title music started my youngest daughter pipes up "there's the Batmobile" while she was pointing out the window.
I think to myself "right" and check out what she was pointing at to humor her. It was the exact same classic Batmobile that some guy had a replica of and was driving on the road.
Needless to say it was a pretty cool moment for the kids and me but damned strange timing wise.
I've known Mark for near 20 years, have to say this opportunity couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
I would love to have that car. It's the Batmobile!
That's it, I'm running out right now to buy lottery tickets.
Very cool. Shame about the Chevy motor though. The Batmobile was a Lincoln, so it should at least have a Ford motor, like the supercharged 5.4 from the GT!
OK, I want one.
No... I need one.
Let's see, I have two kidneys...
like many of you, I too ran around the back yard with a bath towel pinned around my neck...and the Barris Batmobile was the car I dreamed of owning some day.
As much as I like Nolan's new DARK KNIGHT movies, Adam West will ALWAYS be Batman to me.
BAM! POW! ZAP!
very cool post.
