Batmobile in CA : one-of-a-kind


'Found 2 of my photos from 2007 and I know I have a few more photos on another device.

'Cool side view and back view, but the front is quite overdone. I was driving on the 880 freeway in CA and he passed me. I noticed when he exited the freeway more than HALF of the cars on the freeway also exited to follow him. That weekend I caught him parked in 2 different areas. 'Hard to get several clear shots with people swarming the car. Note the cowl between the front seats, made of the same black fiberglass as the car body.

That's pretty interesting. LLooks like it's built off a Vette.

I believe he still lives in Southern CA and I will check on which car he used, Ed.

I read this morning he DID use a Corvette as a base & bondo with blank surfboard material.

After all, I'm in Northern CA and he is in Southern CA - but

Everybody's gone surfin'
surfin' U.S.A.,
We'll be loading up our Batmobiles,
we can't wait for June.
We're on a Bat surfari,
we're on surfari to stay
All the Bats are gone surfin:
'Surfin' U.S.A.

The driver of the Batmobile is the guy in the upper right hand corner of my photo. He has an
American flag patch on his black shirt.

IIRC, the Canole Batmobile started off looking more like the '89, then the creative impulse took over.

Neat to see the effort that must have gone in to creating that. The 89 batmobile is my favorite and I can see where this pulled from that a little.
