The World's Worst Batmobile?

Obviously, this isn't the real Batmobile. It's someone's rough interpretation of the Batmobile, based on a wrecked 1994 Pontiac Grand Am. At $600, the price seems a bit steep, but I'm guessing the seller is willing to entertain offers. Here's a bit of the description.

"Yes, this is the Batmobile! Talk about a car that turns heads! Every time I drive it I get cheers, honks, and pictures taken. It's been super fun and I love this car. It was my summer project last summer and my daily driver all through the winter. I'm moving to Nashville and unfortunately can't take the Batmoblile with me. It is street legal- I have the paperwork to prove it signed by an officer. Check out the pictures below to see the logo on the roof, the fins, and reshaped front end."

"I'm moving to Nashville and unfortunately can't take the Batmoblile with me."

Once the state heard he was coming they quickly ran a new law through the state house.

Anyway, is that picture before or after the conversion?

If you don't like the batmobile, you can call it an RV, or a Personnel Carrier, or a SUV, but you don't have to call it a batmobile.

Logo on the roof? Like 'Dukes of Hazzard' when you it and it does a 360 degree roll. I hit a deer, and reshaped my front end also. Did he use the same technique.

I think he misunderstood, it wasn't cheering he was receiving it was jeering...."Get that POS off the road."

And he probally did not start out to make it a Batmobile, he started out to make it look like a HumVee, but when he finished, he found out he had no talent.

As for deer, that may be the first vehicle that actually has deer avoidance built in.

Unlike a conventional car where the deer freezes, I think deer would run away at first sight.

Maybe the people werent jeering, they were screaming, "Get out of the way, run for your lives" "Get your children off the road"

I think the deer would stand in the middle of the road upon seeing this POS coming and either die laughing at it or get struck by it!

This ad was cancelled.

The seller was the unfortunate victim of a reverse drive by shooting.

His estate was unable to sell the car after it was revealed that the "officer" mentioned as the endorser of the "street legal" document was a mall security guard.

"Obviously, this isn't the real Batmobile." Oh. Wait, wut?

That isn't the real fictional car that the real fictional Batman drove? Did they confirm that with Adam West? Or Michael Keaton?
