Holy Shit Batman!

The Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale is this weekend thru Sunday on the Speed channel.

For the first time ever the original 1966 Batmobile will be auctioned off on Saturday night.

This is the original prototype out of George Barris' personal collection used in the Batman TV Series.

Lots of other sweet machinery too.

I saw an Olds 442 that was sold for only 29K tonight. My parents had a convertible 442 when I was growing up.

Check it out.

I got to sit in that car when I was a little kid at a carshow. Pretty ****ing awesome. I remember when they fired it up. Straight pipes and loud as hell.

The first two days of that auction are a gold mine.

Some seriously great rides go for cheap.

25k for a new Toyota Camry or a mint '66 Super Bee?

I've got a pic of my wife driving that car.

I've never heard of a Delahaye, but now I really, really want one. I'm torn between the blue or the two-tone white.

I love me some Batman, but $5M? No way.

Not even if I were Bill Gates.

I get that, but people realize the gadgets don't actually work, right?

I mean if they did, all bets are off :)

those are definitely the "value days" but most of those cars are far from what i would call "mint"
