Guess Who Dropped by the FF Shop?

Post by Mark Racop » Thu Jan 14, 2016 1:40 pm

This might possibly should have gone into off-topic, but considering the 1955 Lincoln Futura was the car that became the 1966 Batmobile, I wasn't sure.

Guess who dropped by the Fiberglass Freaks' shop to check on the progress of his 1955 Lincoln Futura replica restoration? Here he is, checking out the Futura emblems for the hood and fin.

It was awesome. Here's a video of Jeff to bring you up to speed (there is some language, so please be cautious):

Dunham is a huuuuge Batman fan, by the way. He owns the On Star 89 replica, a 66 that we restored, and the late George Barris' Bat Smart Car!

Andy, that was hilarious as I was thinking the exact same thing! :lol: Now that Mark said it was Jeff Dunham I recognize him and, yes, he is funny with his dummies like Achmed and Walter. I remember I first saw him back in the '90s on The Nashville Network's Statler Bros. weekly variety show. Back when TNN was worth watching.... :roll:

Mauled, you'd be a celebrity that everyone would know! It's time to plan your visit to the Logansport Batcave, good sir!

Please do, Ben! That would be great.

Fanboy, you're absolutely right. Jeff owns the On Star 89, the 66 that we restored, and the only driveable 1955 Lincoln Futura replica.
