Fan goes batty transforming 1978 Corvette to Batmobile

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!
