Batman caused a local traffic jam and near hysteria when he DROVE the Batmobile to the car show in Old Palm Harbor Florida yesterday, (with police escort).
Traffic actually STOPPED along US highway 19 as he cruised in to the show!
Unfortunately, the "Caped Crusader" did NOT win a trophy!
( The car is one of the original movie cars and was bought by a local company and was "display only" for this show.)
This car is LOUD!. it has the sound of a big V8 with no mufflers, but we were never allowed to see under the "hood".
The 4 exhaust pipes on each side of the rear "turbine" exhaust are *functional*..
The interior is awesome, but I never got a chance to get photos of it..

Just to keep this "Fiero related" ....
I didn't win a trophy at the show yesterday, but a professional photographer did shoot nice pics of the cars as we entered the show.
Here's mine:

Each entrant got a nice 8 X 10 framed copy... all 300 of us!

That picture of your car seems like it was pulled right out of the 1980s, very cool!

That's really a coincidence that you should say that, I thought the same thing.
I took the original photo print and "massaged" it a little and tried to make it look like an old car magazine photo:

Not sure I did it the right way, but to my eye it sort of looks like a clipped photo from an old 80's car magazine or advertisement...

AH! got it!

This show was a "classic car show".
That's why Batman brought his old car.
All the guys with 50's cars were jealous of his "fins"

Nice pic. Its just too bad they didnt have a specific area set up to do car pictures in. Stuff in the background like other cars spoiled an otherwise perfect shot. Bigger shows like GoodGuys have an area set aside for photos with a set up background. One local guy here has a trailer with huge roll down murals for a background...usually Columbus skyline.

you have to put the " IMG " tags with the link in your profile

go to my original post of your siggy .... click edit ... copy and paste the whole line "IMG" to your profile and save .... then log out of PFF ... log back in it should then be there when you add new posts.

Yep the Widow is almost completed I'll take some pics of them on ... mine are NOT TLG though because I wanted the LEDs to go through the center hole like this.
