I'm new here but I think I may have found somethign of interest.
I'm sure most of you remember the 1960's batman tv show with adam
west. Well i came upon the website www.starcarcentral.com and on
their page about the infamous batmobile they say it was originally a
ford concept car called the Futura. Is this true?
My info said it was a Lincoln Futura, but all in the family as they say.
Lots of people argued it was a Pontiac because of the grill shape, but
Barris confirmed it was the Lincoln concept car.
Also the original couldn't go more than 30 mile per hour or stuff
started to blow off. The entrance to the "Bat Cave" (actually Bronson
Cave in south Griffith Park) sequence was run at double speed to make
the car seem fast.
Just wanted to add a bit.
