If you ever wondered, like Jack Nicholson's Joker, where Batman got his wonderful toys, we may have found your answer. "Super Genius" Mark Shield created this bat-winged, torched tailed replica of the Batmobile used in the 1989 movie from a 1978 Corvette. Except for a $50,000 asking price and several cries "it's not a kit!", he remains tight-lipped on details.

Take a peak at the pics and tell us what you think. Should Shield be working on Pimp My Ride or does the Batmobile need some more wrench work in the Batcave?

Thanks for the tip, Al!

      A horible, horible POS. Looks like a corvette with crappy body work. People take pictures to mock him to their friends.

      See. This is why we need more two-parent homes in this country. To keep this kind of crap from happening. He needs to drop a zero off the end of that asking price if he wants to sell it.

      Take a "peak" at the pics? Pathetic. Not as pathetic as Ray's shotgun approach to punctuation, but Ray isn't being paid for his Autoblog posts.

      Well, it looks like a piece of really bad body work. Why wouldnt you want to make a new batmobile on a new Corvette. It would be much better looking and much faster.

      I have seen this car in Houston... it is actually really impressive to see roll down the street. Houston takes their art cars seriously... and this is about as serious as it gets.

      I think this mid-80's DeVille made a better donor car:
