I love build pictures. They give an idea of just how much work is involved in building a custom car. I would love to see more pictures.

Nice. Although I do not like the look of the finished car (just too cartoony in my opinion...) I really appreciate the amount of effort that went into that build! Very cool.

I agree that it is a bit too cartoony, but I really like the dashboard and inside. I think it's really cool to seperate the driver like that.

I asked him about the process and influcent of keaton car in his design.
This is what he said:

"I just bondoed surfboard blanks onto the Corvette bodywork and started carving. This adds alot of weight to the car, but I did manage to drive it over 100 mph on a San Diego freeway when I completed it. Much to the amazement of motorist that day. If I had it to do over again I think I would have started with either a D-Type Jaguar kit car like the one seen in the garage of the Val Kilmer version of Batman, or a 1967 Ferrari P4 reproduction built by Nobel in England. In fact if anyone out there is interested I would build them a Batmobile on the Ferrari P4 in trade for a P4 for me.

The main thing to keep in mind in building a one of a kind Batmobile is "hole" and I mean very tiny holes. You would be amazed at how an all black fiberglass car can generate built up heat pockets in the foam, that results in blisters in the fiberglass and paint. I recommend a professional gel coat be applied before painting.

As for the influence of the 1989 Batmobile, I tried to use the best of that design including the turbine. But the reason I added wings to the front fenders was for possible special effects to give the car the chance to fly. I believe mine is the only Batmobile with front wings and hover-craft fans in the fenders."


He seems a real nice person and genuinely interested in hearing what other people have to say about his car. If you have any specific questions, then please email him at ccanolenospam@ucsd.edu(you know what to remove)

Looks like Jack wasted no time stealing the steering wheel off of this one, too
