    Shameless request:

    MODS ... PLEASE DON'T MOVE THIS TO THE CAR PHOTOS THREAD WHERE IT WILL GET LOST AS THESE AREN'T REAL CARS!

    In spite of being 51 years old I have a lifelong fetish for Batmobiles and have been a Batman fanatic since before the campy 1966 TV classic.

    In any event, here is my Batmobile collection ... and at the end I will display my new pride and joy.

    All models are 1:18 scale and were shot this AM with very little forethought ... other my new toy was delivered by an agent of UPS ... with a Nikon D50 and 50MM F1.9 AF lens and built in fill flash:

    The original 1930's Batmobile made by Corgi. Pay close attention to Batman's personal size as later we will see the modern "ROID RAGE" vision of the Dark Knight:

    Notice the embossed bat logo in the rear decklid:

    double overhead cam V12 engine:

    and portable criminologist kit and spare utility belt.

    By the 1940's Batman had adapted the radical new technology of turbine engines:

    Keeping with the postwar 1950's world Batman had adopted the dual tail fin V8 powered road hog which America loved:

    Leaping ahead to the 1970's Batman was into the newest technology yet again:

    The 1980's and 1990's saw the Batmobile first driven by Michael Keaton. This is the battle damaged Batmobile after the shootout with the EEEVILLL Joker:
