NAME: Mike

AGE: 42

HOMETOWN: Houston

DO YOU OWN A REPLICA BAT-VEHICLE? Not yet, hopefully soon

A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF YOUR PAST OR PRESENT INVOLVEMENT IN THIS INDUSTRY (if willing to share):
built a fiero lambo replica in 1996 , sold it after i used v8 archies swap kit and dropped a 350 chevy in it.

OCCUPATION: work at home

YOUR LINKS OR ONLINE PHOTO ALBUMS: nope

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: wanting to build 2 batmobiles, the 89 and the tumbler. Starting with the 89

Now for a suggestion...
I notice 90% of the threads/topics that are posted outside the "members area" are very old threads and dates that are many years old. which looks like to me as a newbie would see it a site that is dead , no action, no people....so by having this "members only" section I believe is hurting the site as many newbies such as myself are serious about building a replica and to gauge that seriousness with a post count to gain access is in my opinion a deterrent. I have seen and in fact just read a thread where someone asked a simple question about a frame for a forever car and not one person answered or even made a reply...then the original poster left as they had only 1 post and probably checked everyday for an answer, my guess is all the people on here that had the answer to the persons question was posting in the "members area" and totally didnt even check those threads.
Dont get me wrong, I like the site in fact I hope to learn a lot about what to do and not to do and just wish new people that are wanting and willing to build a batmobile should have access to the same information as all the other members do. Just my .02
So....I'm glad to be here, hope to build my dream cars soon.

Nope Mike,

Just some oldbies who have heard the same questions over and over. Some of us have spent a lot of time (and money?) finding out answers to some of these questions and it just seems that most newbies want the 'insider' answer or short cut to getting a replicar.

I have not built a Batmobile, like many others on the board and many builders are truly helpful and will answer questions and 'share' their build progress. However ownership is a legal 'grey area' and many want to remain quiet. Really, after doing years of research or time spent building and rebuilding your car - would you be willing to say "this is how to do it"? , many builders won't. Each one has done it 'their way' and no-one can say this is the right way or not.

f a reply is not posted, then probly no-one who read it has an answer or opinion. We are not trying to be unhelpful, just a lot of people with grand plans come and go.

There unfortunately is no short cut or easy answer sometimes, only painstakingly slow reading, planning and preparation.

Welcome to the board. Truth is... it is a lot of research and hard work. Ask around

I'm definitely not looking for a handout or a how to do it, this is something I want to do on my own and the same time see how others did it and what approach they took. A lot of you people have been here a long time and by reading what others have done or mistakes made I hope to learn from those who built their dream. I look forward to being here a long time. Thanks for the welcome

Well hello there fellow citizens of Gotham!

I am a nubie and this is my first official post.........so here it goes:

NAME: JETT

AGE: 40

HOMETOWN: Niagara Falls NY

DO YOU OWN A REPLICA BAT-VEHICLE? Yes - a 66 Batmobile

A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF YOUR PAST OR PRESENT INVOLVEMENT IN THIS INDUSTRY (if willing to share): It all started 10 years ago when I built my first star car - my 1st dream car - the GENERAL LEE. After the General I got the Starsky & Hutch Torino, then after that K.I.T.T.

I hooked up with other local guys who have replicas of famous TV and Movie cars and then started www.TVandMovieCarsForHIre.com - although we do some paid events I am proud to say that we also do a ton of charity events - especially for kids. There's no greater reward than putting a huge smile on a sick childs face and having them forget about their ailments - if even for an hour or two.

OCCUPATION: Firefighter / Owner of www.TVandMovieCarsForHire.com

My name is Rob Deaton. I am a fashion photographer and a huge Batman fan! I hope to own a batmobile but I joined the site in hopes of finding someone in Ohio near Mason that has a car that can make an appearance at our charity fundraiser. We do a weekend event benefiting Aubrey Rose Foundation as well as American Cancer Society, Freestore Foodbank and The.Beautiful Minds (helps kids with dyslexia). We do a special show for terminally ill kids as well as kids in general where we have characters such as Batman interact with the kids. If anyone can help, please let me know. www.fashionangels.org is the site for the event.

Thank you,
Rob Deaton

I knew I saw an "introduction" thread!

Greetings. My name is Kevin, but everyone calls me bats or futurabat. I've mostly been a fan of the '66 Bat all my life. I've only just started appreciating the Keaton, or '89 Bat in recent years. I do not like the Kilmer, Clooney or Bale machines. (Although the Tumbler is growing on me) I am an ex bodyman, current resin caster and i'm hell on details. I can be a little gruff but I try to temper myself. I don't know all that much about the '89, so that's why i'm here.

As I said in another thread, I am not the type to sugar coat things. I'll tell it like it is, and that rubs folks raw sometimes. So you can imagine someone with the temperament of Mr. Currie, isn't my biggest fan.

I do see a lot of really cool things being done here and can't wait to follow some builds all the way through.

NAME: Craig

AGE: 46

HOMETOWN: Toowoomba QLD Australia

DO YOU OWN A REPLICA BAT-VEHICLE? No. Hope to have a model 89 soon though, to inspire me

A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF YOUR PAST OR PRESENT INVOLVEMENT IN THIS INDUSTRY (if willing to share): None

OCCUPATION: Database Administrator

YOUR LINKS OR ONLINE PHOTO ALBUMS:

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Have successfully raced ATV's at a national level for 5 years. Have been building trailers and other things for ages now. Looking at taking a different tack to have a crack at building either the 89 or the Tumbler. I think the 89 will be a bit more manageable at this stage
