The Batmobile, Ford Escort Style: RT.35-Normandy Beach, NJ

September 15th, 2010 by Stu

I’m willing to bet you never considered an ’88 Ford Escort hatchback as being a good jumping off point for recreating the Batmobile. Well, shame on you for being so closed minded. Seriously though, this is the kind of stuff that gets me out of bed in the morning. The owner, creepily clad in Batman hat and T-shirt, was more than happy to share his unique creation with Man on the Move readers and uses the crime-fighting economy car as a part of his superhero act for kids’ birthday parties and, oddly enough, corporate functions (your guess is as good as mine on that one). Jersey Shore Batman also tells me that the organ style exhaust pipes protruding from behind the head rest are indeed functional, which begs the question of what the afterburner-style pipe in back is spitting out. Maybe it releases grease or thumb tacks to allude the Joker’s henchmen when a chase pursues.

We can’t make this stuff up folks.
