Who was the guy bawling behind George on the podium? My guess is grandson? Sure seemed happy when the thing crested $4M

I saw the Batmobile at a car show in St. Louis as a kid and thought it was the coolest thing ever. Apparently someone else does too!

My thought looking at the auction was that P.T. Barnum's theory has been proved right.

I wonder how much it would cost to restore it back to the futura and lose all the Barris crap. I'm at the auction, some weird numbers on stuff

4.2 million... I bet it would cost $20,000 a year to register that in California unless George gives a fake bill of sale for $500.00.

The interesting thing to me is not so much that someone would spend stupid money on ANY single car, but rather just imagining what sort of "car stuff" could happen for any one person who had that kind of money to spend...

I am thinking about a beautiful property, a house and a fantastic shop. A cool hot rod, a great custom, an early Vette, an Effie shop truck, a vintage race car, a motor home and trailer, a Harley, a boat, motor head vacations and trips for life. All of it and probably new stainless appliances and a kitchen sink too!

Oh to dream...
