Fantastic and unusual to say the least. I too thought it was a 1-1. I have only ever seen the old Corgi version. Does the real thing still exist? And what about the racers on the transporter, are they kits or die casts or even more scratch built. Stunning
I'm a fan of both the original and the Bat. Some of the ideas would be used on production cars though the bubble tops were never really in the running. As to the comments on all the junk Barris put on it! Hey, it was for a TV show about a crime fighter. You don't hear many adverse comments on James Bond's Aston DB5 with all the guns and stuff and that was just as far out as gadgets go. All the arguments count for nothing if Barris had not bought it, the car may very well have been scrapped looking at the state it was in when he got it. Fantastic, in both versions
Thats gorgeous, especially in black I love the 60 Cadillac, probably because I owned one(see my avatar ) and more so that the much more popular 1959. This looks really great, is it a Modelhaus body kit with their front and rear ends? Just looking though, the side trim looks a little more 59ish than the 60 as 1960s Eldorado had two smaller bands of chrome trim following a similar line to the 59 with paint separation in between. Cheers for doing a 1960s, John.
I have done it once or twice just as a comparison but with no intention of hi-jacking someone else post. If anyone took any interest in my pic, discussing what I had used or done etc I would start a new topic on mine.
