I m flattered by your thoughts on putting my car in the Hall of Fame. I think it is definitely deserving. Today I put a couple hundred miles on it with an exotic car club. I was able to hustle the car around and stay with all the new Ferraris and Lamborghinis. We were driving fairly hard. For instance, one man flipped his Acura NSX. I will post pictures later of the weekend. So far I have put a bit over a thousand miles on the car with no trouble.

The Batmobile and a vintage race car formerly driven by Sam Hornish Jr. are featured cars at this weekend's Cruise to Seneca Hills car and motorcycle show.

The show is planned for 6-9 p.m. Saturday on a portion of Seneca Hills Golf Course, 4044 W. TR 98.

"We're hoping to see a huge cross-section of vehicles," said Chuck Putsch, organizer of the show and owner of Seneca Hills. "Maybe some Europeans, maybe some Italians, hot rods, street rods, Harley-Davidsons.

"It's different from the normal cruise and hopefully a lot of fun," he said. "It's a unique venue for a lot of these people. A very nice, peaceful, quiet setting."

The Batmobile has been a popular attraction in Tiffin and Columbus, said Chuck Putsch of Seneca Hills.

Created by his son, Casey, Putsch said the car drew 200 people one day when Casey stopped for lunch at Wendy's.

"The same thing happened at Jolly's," he said. "This car is very different from other cars he's dealt with. This car is far from a sports car or vintage race car."

"It started life out as a Corvette and was basically stripped down to nothing," Putsch said.

"The body is dead on, but he took some artistic license. This car is better even than the movie car was."

Machine guns come out of the fenders and sound life-like when they fire (they're air rifles).

And the top of the car moves so the driver can climb in.

"There are no doors," he said.

It also sports an air horn from a train that sounds at about 170 decibels.

"Inside, you can play movies on various screens," he s aid.

"Just the fact that it's 21 feet long and 8 feet wide creates a spectacle when he drives it," Putsch said.

"The Batmobile is not just a 'crime-fighting machine,'" he said. "It's going to be used as a tow vehicle for the Sam Hornish vintage car."

Casey's vintage race car - a 1999 Swift Formula Atlantic - also is to be displayed at the show.

"He'll be racing it at Mid-Ohio," Putsch said, along with a few other tracks this summer.

"It was previously driven by Sam Hornish Jr. back in 1999. This was one of the cars that he drove to get him where he's at today."

Burgers, bratwurst and beverages are to be available at Saturday's show.

"The weather is supposed to be nice," Putsch said. "It's something to do on a nice Saturday night."

He said the promotion is good for the golf course, as well as for Tiffin.

"I've been in business for 27 years," he said. "It's nice to get other businesses involved. Everybody can benefit from it hopefully."

One of the goals is to draw people from outside the area.

"We've sent out hundreds of e-mails to people that aren't from the area, Michigan, Indiana," he said. "If we can bring people in, they might eat at a local restaurant or stay overnight at a local motel."

Prizes are to be awarded in various vehicle classes, as well as door prize drawings for rounds of golf and other prizes.

Co-sponsors are Coppus Motors and United Insurance.

Additional prize donors includes Beerco, Pepsi and Tiffin Hardware.

There is no entry fee, and people who enter cars receive a free nine-hole round of golf.

There also will be a target car contest. On the driving range, people can try to hit a car with a golf ball.

There also is a "touch the iron" contest planned in which entrants are blindfolded and their hand is placed on a headlight. They then must guess a vehicle's identity using only the front of the car.

"The model, brand, maybe even the year," he said.

"The color might be a little tougher."

"Come on out," Putsch said. "You might get to see something you've never seen before, along with the Batmobile. The Batmobile will be living in Columbus (along with its creator) after this weekend."

Race the trolls? Sure! So, during this exotic car tour, I was in the middle of the pack on one of the legs. Well the lead guy in a Galardo missed a turn and the first half of the pack ended up now the last with me at the back. Well, I got pinched at a traffic light. Do you know how hard I had to drive the Batmobile to catch up to a bunch of Ferraris and Lamborghinis on a twisty country road?!?!!! The Can-Am reunion race was nothing compared to that drive. I mean those big Mickey Thompson tires only grip so well. I can tell you my car is definately stable at triple digit speeds. Sure, who wants to race? The Batmobile CAN be a performance car.

    Alos, I want to invite you all to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the Vintage Grand Prix which is the end of June and the AMA Motorcycle Vintage Days in the first half of July. I will be racing in both and using the Batmobile as a tow vehicle. So it won't be hard to find me in the pits.

    I am attaching some pictures fromt eh Exotic car drive and also fromt he Saturday night before when they blocked of parking to I could arrive at this posh night club for a magazine party. Bruce Wayne never had it so good.

Casey

PS. Chicks do love the car!

my level of jealousy just went up ten fold! How does it handle on those straight highways and how fast have you gotten it?
