Batmobile Goes for $172,500

I missed the auto auction at the Klassix Auto Museum yesterday. Had to go to commencement ceremonies at ERAU, where I teach, and see some of my students graduate (which is always a thrill).

While we were sitting in the sun, listening to a nice speech by Joe Martin of Fairchild Semiconductor (brief, throughtful, and to the point), Devoe Moore of the Tallahassee Antique Car Museum was busy picking up one of the Batmobiles from the 1960s Batman TV show for $172,500. Story here from the Daytona Beach News-Journal. Photo here. There's also a table of other television, film, and celebrity cars that sold currently on the front of the News-Journal's web site.
