Holy Can of Lonies, Batman! The Batmobile is now ranked right up there, surpassing the James Bond DB5 as most expensive Movie Car ever sold at Barrett Jackson in Arizona.
The winning bidder, Rick Champagne, woppled down a cool close to $5 million bucks for this #1 original car built by my buddy George Barris. And if I were George, I'd take that dough and head to Switzerland or Fiji. Maybe both. (I can fly the plane for you, George...?)
Over the years, George has built so many cars that his hands look like sleek painted fenders. He's influenced thousands including myself, and at 88, he's still out there doin' his thing.
Congratulations. Let's have a BatLatte...
