My dream car sold for $4.62 million at the Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction in Scottsdale last night.
Mike pretty much echoed my thoughts.
If you watch a car on television as a kid and are able to purchase that exact iconic vehicle later in life, you're probably pretty successful in life. Or you've chosen a TV show with the worst piece-of-shit clunker ever that somehow holds appeal for you.
The man who purchased the Batmobile, Rick Champagne, said he planned to put it in his living room. His wife must be awesome.
The Los Angeles Times has a photo gallery of the Batmobile under construction.
I would totally go to pick up my niece from preschool in the Batmobile. Although it doesn't really look car-seat friendly, which could be a problem.
This is reminding me that I'm long overdue to watch The Dark Knight Rises on Blu-ray, which includes a documentary on the history of the Batmobile.
