Driving a Batmobile is the stuff of dreams as a kid, and Mike is getting to slide behind the wheel of one of the coolest ever seen on film - a replica of the 1989 Tim Burton/Michael Keaton Batmobile. It's not quite the original jet turbine car, but a hefty Chevy V8 should do the trick!

    This is the original Batmobile for me, it departed from the original series Batmobile and was truely a character in its own right. The outlandish designs from the later mobies were pale imitations and never had that same spirit. The Tumbler is a completely different animal, just like everything else in the Chistopher Nolan movies, and I'd hold it up right beside this one as the true embodyment of the spirit of the Batmobile. That said, this Batmobile has a special place in my heart, right beside the Ecto-1, and Kitt... and probably a few others I'm forgetting.

    So, what does "based on a 1965 Mustang" mean? Is this a kit that just used the Mustang frame dimensions and wheelbase, or did they an actual Mustang for it? If the latter, I don't think even turning it into a Batmobile will save the owner from the Petrol Gods' karmic wrath of dropping a *Chevy* engine into *1965 Mustang.*
