Homemade Batmobile Patrols Northern California

CBR Contributing Writer Joey Pangilinan sent in the following pic and anecdote about NoCal’s very own Batmobile, spotted cruising the streets of San Jose, CA!

So this photo was taken when I was in San Jose, CA last weekend. The fin at the roof of the car, wings on hood of the trunk, and flame thing on the back bumper are actually made of cardboard.

When I was taking the picture, the owner was actually approaching… It was an awkward introduction at first, but he was a little self-deprecating about the fact that he has had too much time on his hands.

He said that in time, he wants to replace the cardboard with something sturdier; I forgot what material he was hoping to eventually put in place. The Bat-logos were a somewhat quick paint job, and kind of like the cardboard, wants to also eventually retouch it. Overall, it’s still a work in progress.
