1966 batmobile

Post by Austinunc »

I'd like to start out by saying that I'm kinda new to the forum but have been a batman fan since the age of 5. The 66 batman was always really fun for me because of it being live action, with this said I attended my first comic con event today and was able to see the 1966 batmobile and sit in it. Needless to say it was incredible and an event I really wanted to share. I'm currently putting together my 66 suit with everything being put together by chuck Williams and I am VERY excited to recive my cape and cowl from him. Thanks for listing fellow bat fans!

Glad to hear you attended your first con AND got to sit in the Batmobile. I have been lucky enough to sit in the #1 and #2 cars. It was a thrill to be behind the wheel.

There are about 150 1966 Batmobile replicas around the world. If you are attending a comic book convention, the odds are pretty good that you will see another Batmobile. :)

Does anyone have any idea about roughly how many Batmobiles there are here in the U.S?

Most of the 150-175 replicas are here in the US. I'm not sure how many are completed, drivable, turn-key cars, though. Many are just fiberglass shells just sitting in a garage or barn, hoping for greatness.

Holy Welcome Newcomer! I think you'll find a lot of fun here on the board. Congratulations on getting to sit in the Batmobile. I got to do that myself at one of the Cons years ago! It's always worthwhile to try fulfill the desires of my bucket list. We look forward to hearing some more from you.
