    I posted this in the Cars and Coffee thread I put up last weekend but nobody commented on it. Curious what it is or was or where it came from, anyone know?

    Boy that (58 Ford?) side trim fits well and looks great on this old ford! Really like the way it wraps over the skirts
     
  3. That's a copy of the Lincoln Futura, a Ford concept car. George Barris got his hands on the original and made it into the Batmobile...

    Thanks, yeah I see the resemblance. I think it showed up after I left on Sunday or I'd have gotten some info.

  5. Built by Gotham Garage, who did Batmobile replicas. They were sued by DC (Warner Bros.) for copyright infringement.

    How did that one get past their lawyers?

  7. The issue was the Batmobile copies, DC didn't care about the Futura copies.

    That's what I was getting at. All that planning and no one thought that copyright might be an issue, especially with something that iconic.

  12. Initially no one cared about a copy of a prop car from a defunct '60s TV show, it was when they re-booted the series for the big $$ movies that it became an issue.
