Batmobile or Boostermobile? Discuss.

As you may have heard, the Batmobile from the 1966 Batman television show last month sold for over 4.2 million dollars (plus auction fees). That sounds like a fair price for the most famous one-of-a-kind car in the world. I can't imagine that there are many cars that would be more valuable, unless there really is a talking Knight Industries Two Thousand out there somewhere.

You know what car I'd rather have? A Brysler-Booster Mark IV. If I had a spare $4 million lying around, I would spend that money building Booster's signature automobile. (I'd say I'd spend that money on a time-travelling DeLorean, but I'm afraid I don't have the math background required to cobble together a flux capacitor.)

I love the open cockpit and the "Booster" striping. The most important part would be the custom interface for Skeets in the rear. While I'm sure that there are some who would like their robot co-pilot to be an R2 unit, I'd definitely take Skeets any day of the week — and twice for a Sunday drive!

If the Batmobile is your thing, you'd probably enjoy spending some time at I have to admit, it's an admirably thorough catalog of the many, many Batmobiles used through history, including the model that Booster stole in Booster Gold, volume 2, #12.
