You’re gonna fly away,
Glad you’re going my way
I love it when we’re cruising together.

Daily Batman: Hot wheels edition

March 3, 2010

They call me Baby Driver
And once upon a pair of wheels
I hit the road and I’m gone,
What’s my number?
I wonder how your engine feels.

Burt Ward and Adam West photographed by Yale Joel on the set of the Batman movie, 1966.

Scoot down the road,
What’s my number?
I wonder how your engine feels.

“Baby Driver” (Simon and Garfunkel, 1969).

Patented style.

An actual patent was filed for the Batmobile that was built for the first film version of Batman (Leslie Martinson, 1966). The patent, no. 205998, was registered to Mr. George Barris of Barris Kustom, who outfitted the Batmobile for the movie. Among its features were a mobile batphone, bat-symbol hubcaps, and a “radar-like antenna with aimable parabolic reflector.” (source)
