Original Batmobile To Be Auctioned For the First Time Ever 51

Zothecula writes "In the past few years, not only has the Corvette-like Batmobile from Batman Returns been put up for auction, but a jet-powered replica of that same style of Batmobile has also been created. A drivable copy of the Dark Knight-era Tumbler has likewise been built, along with a working replica of the associated Bat Pod motorcycle. For many people, however, the only 'true' Batmobile is the original version driven by Adam West in the 1960s TV series – and it's about to be put on the auction block, for the first time ever."

    I always LOVED that car, and yes, I'm old enough for it to be the definitive Batmobile.

    I'd love to pull a Bat-turn on I-10 one day.........again, but in that car rather than my own.

    It's the definitive Batmobile to me also. I was old enough to still enjoy the (first rounds of) re-runs, and see it in an "antique" auto museum close to the area I grew up. I remember making a point of touching it, to see if it was a real car. Ah, the good old days.
