Batmobile Sold!

Back in the eighties, me and a couple guys drove up to Fargo to the car show just to see this amazing feat of automotive magic: the original TV Batmobile. I'm not sure we ever saw the real one, but it sure looked like it. After all these years, a custom Futura seems to have really gone up in price: the TV Batmobile sold this weekend for just over four million dollars. It, amazingly, had been owned by the designer who originally built it, but now it's moving on to live with a car collector with deep pockets. Wait...a rich eccentric man buys a crime fighting car? I hope he doesn't plan on donning a cowl and jumping from rooftop to rooftop. Look where that got Adam West.
