I Got To Sit In The Batmobile!!!

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!
