I Got To Sit In The Batmobile!!!

April 24, 2007

The Batmobile — the real one, from the classic Adam West TV series; not those post-Armageddon mockeries from the movies — came to Satan Staten Island!

Weep, wail, and gnash your teeth over these photos (I took over 200!!):

Final Batmobile

What a car! No, I don’t own it yet. But finally, after wanting to for decades and decades, I finally, finally got to see it in person and to sit in it!

It’s been a good day!

Thank you, George Barris, for making the greatest car in the history of mankind!
