This car was posted from some guy's blogger long time ago.

I just got the shots of the interior.

Do we know who owns this one or the story behind this?

Yup. This car is owned by a dude up in NorCal (Those pics were taken in or around Carmel, CA.) From the looks of it, it was built by one of Bob Butts' builders (you can tell by the jet fighter cockpit top).

If I hadn't seen that before, I would've assumed that's something sg1star's making.

Lol. RJ is great. Did you know he was making functional web shooters, too?? I built a house out of popsicle sticks once and I thought I was cool...

I think someone went just a bit nuts with the Bat logos... Although the side panels are a little shoddy, overall the interior looks pretty nice. It just looks too cheesy to me. Too much "Batman & Robin" you might even say.

I agree some of it's kind of cheesy but it's pretty awesome that this guy has an '89 and drives it around. Looks like he went to get a coffee and bagle and a huge crowd gathered!

I wonder what prompted the flip-up canopy decision. If that's as far as it flips up then getting in and out has to be a pain in the a$$.

The guy who used to build for Butts did all of his canopies that way. It is WAY easier than figuring out the rail mechanisms and crazy ball-bearing thingies that make the original work... Dan R. is having his car built by Bob's former builder, and he was the first to INSIST that his work like the original.
