Recently we published a photo sent in by a Bat-Blog Fan named Bob who just recently bought a Vintage 1958 Corvette that was customized, in the 1960’s, to look like Batman’s Batmobile car. That post was pretty popular & I asked Bob to send some more pics. He was very gracious & here they are! In these you get a great view of the front & back of the car. Also, the “comic book graphic” at the top…I think that is Bob’s idea on what this car might look like after it’s restored. Let’s hope so because that’s pretty sweet. Actually, any kind of restoration would improve it right now. It’s a little banged up from so many years of neglect. But we all know that Bob is going to give it some tender loving care. I wanna thank Bob for sending us some more photos & keeping us updated. It’s actually kinda thrilling to get to see this really great custom automobile come to life. If you missed the 1st post, or would like to see the 1st photo again, then here’s a link to check it out, just CLICK HERE!
OK, I thought I’d do a quick post to share this ultra-rare piece of Bat-History! These photos are of 2 items that recently sold on evil eBay. One is a Store Display Poster for an offer to buy an OVALTINE Mail-Away Premium “JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA” T-Shirt. Those bright day-glo colors must have been seen by every little kid for a 3 mile radius, ha ha! Then, the next photo shows the actual JLA T-Shirt you could have got back in the 1960’s ( I’m guessing around 1966 or 1967 ). Oh man, the retro-style graphics are totally beautiful and it even features Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, and The Flash! I wish I had these 2 pieces, especially that poster. But, I guess I’ll just have to enjoy these pictures because this stuff is so ultra-rare it will probably never be seen by me in my lifetime. It’s what we serious Vintage Toy Collectors call a “Museum Piece”.
