Who's who in the 1989 batmobile world?

Can someone explain who's who in the 1989 batmobile world?
I only know of:
Anton Furst is the designer I guess.
And Jay Ohberg(?) is the one who had contract with WB to produce cars for Universal studios but lost later.
Then who's Mark Towles, Bob Butts and etc...?

RE: Who's who in the 1989 batmobile world?

Mark Towle is a Southern California builder who assembles 1966 Batmobiles (very well I might add) and also is working on releasing the '89 when the patent expires. Kory is his broker, who does most of the mouth work. Bob Butts was perhaps the first kit builder for the '66 cars, and he built many famous cars including the '66 in the Guiness World of Records Museum in Gatlinburg, TN, and the Rockstar Batmobile. He died severl years ago, but his legacy lives on. Jay lost his contract for selling '89 kits out the back door, taken from the molds he got with his WB contract. He is largely responsible for the molds being in so many hands today. There are MANY more players, and it gets ALOT more complicated if you delve into it. Dealing with these people is like watching a soap opera, because most of the guys don't like each other and will contort the truth to their favor. Not ALL of them mind you, but it happens.

Who is THOMAS OBERHAUS and how does he fit into the grand scheme of things?
