Yeah, saying that at the start of every trip's not going to annoy anyone.

Not sure if ...

From their auction:

"This vehicle is scheduled for production on 4-15-11 and the anticipated completion is 10-15-10. When the car is ready, we will process registration and titling as required by law. Bid now for delivery by Halloween of 2011! "

So, the car will be completed 10-15-10, althought production doesnt start till 4-15-11, and you can't get it till near Halloween?

Advert

While reading the article, I couldn't help but notice the "webuyanycar.com" advert at the top of the page. Well done.

Although I'd love to support the reg by allowing it's adverts, there is no chance until they decide to stop plastering every page with REALLY ANNOYING FLASHING ones.

So, I missed that funny one you spotted :/

At the Toyota display at the British Grand Prix a couple of years ago - and as the GP team doesn't now exist there must be at least one going begging.

They also had a bat bike, but maybe not the same year.

GP fan, not a Bat fan ....

That'll ruin Robin's day. No chance of getting a cheap laugh due to holey rusted metal.

Flamethrower?

Perfect for when the smarmy sales rep in his 3 series is 6 inches from your boot lid on the M1...

Awwwww

I was hoping it would be the new batmobile (complete with bat-bike). I'd love one of those...

Tumbler please!

While the 60s BatMobile is a classic, I'd much rather have the Tumbler, either the one from the recent movies or the original comic.
