Here at the Bat-Blog, awhile back, we did a story about a guy in Ohio who bought a Military Drone Helicopter Engine & used it to make a Batmobile Replica Car that was unlike any other. Well, I guess he has decided to sell it, it’s on eBay right now. OK, before you get ready to go hit eBay & bid let’s just say that it’s pretty expensive. I mean, the “BUY IT NOW” price is $620,000.00, ha! Yes, over half a million bucks! But the car is pretty impressive & would totally turn you into a complete Chick Magnet! So, go bid now! Here’s a LINK.
Our buddy, known as “Bat-Dave”, just recently got to ride in the Batmobile!! No, seriously, he sent us some pics to prove it ( Be sure to click on them for larger, sharper versions ). Plus, he has a great story about it too. Check this out:
I was having a cold beer last weekend at The Beachcomber Bar & Grill on Seaside Heights boardwalk where MTV films that horrible ‘Jersey Shore’. I commented to this older fellow to my left wearing a ‘weathered’ Batman tee how much I liked his shirt. It turns out that the guy is Jay Weatherby, New Jersey’s coolest Adam West/Batman impersonator!! Not only is Jay a walking encyclopedia of the 1960’s TV series, he even had his own costume tailor-made and… get this…He MADE his very own BATMOBILE!!! A few years back, Jay sawed the entire top off his 1980’s Ford Mustang and has basically customized it as a homage to the 1966 George Barris vehicle!!! Jay does parties and other personal appearances from time to time. It was a real thrill when he took me for a quick spin around Seaside in his trusty ‘Batmobile’! Kids of all ages on the boardwalk were loving it!
