...George Barris is touring the country with the "Return to the Batcave" Batmobile replica and a Munsters Koach replica as well! He is appearing at various "World of Wheels" events, maybe in a city near you!
...and I am debating on whether or not I should try to get a shot of me (IN COSTUME) with George in front of the Batmobile! A few Halloweens back, I was told to remove the mask at the Mall Of America's "Camp Spooky!" I guess they thought I was a potential terrorist or something! They said you can wear facepaint, but NO MASKS!!! UNBELIEVEABLE!!!
I'm alittle worried that the security could have the same rules at the Convention Center! Do you think I should try it?
I'd go, but $13 each for adults and $5 each for my 4 oldest kids makes it an expensive picture! ;D Hope you get a chance to go Matt! Get an interview for us!!
Yeah, its easier for me...both of mine are free! Plus, my wife didn't seem too excited, so my son and I might go by ourselves while she and my daughter go shopping. Baz was VERY excited about seeing the "old Batman vroom" as he calls it, lol.

From reports I've read, George is VERY nice at shows! It might cos $5 for a signed photo (for the photo), but a pic might be free! BTW, it's the "Return to the Batcave" Batmobile replica (Bob Butts' last one, I believe!)
I went to his garage about 2 years ago, and even though it is CLOSED to the public, I managed to get a tour and an introduction to George by his son Brett!...and I didn't even know this guy WAS his son until his sister told me that George was their dad!
Brett took a photo of me in the "Return to the Batcave" Batmobile and let me hang around for the better part of 2 hours. I got to talk to George and watch him literally "cut-and-paste" his next show flyer with paper, pics, and glue!
My boy Adam and I went to the MN World of Wheels and after a little effort, we DID get in!
Once we got to George's booth, he IMMEDIATELY ushered us in and had us take pics with him! He let us hang out for 3 hours!..taking pics with fans and the car!
George SURE loves the ladies!
The Munster Coach was there as well!...
He was selling this AWESOME Barris Crest and I HAD to get one!
Guess what? George enjoyed us being there so much that he invited us back tomorrow and gave us free passes! I am taking an 8X10 of the shot with the crest and having him sign it!
WHAT A NICE GUY!!!
Looks like you and your son had a blast, and George seems like a super nice guy. That is soooooo COOL that you got to get in and have pictures taken with the BATMOBILE! ! ! And free passes for tomorrow, awesome. Have fun and again great to hear you and your son are having such a fun time at the convention.

Well, as it turns out our tax return is delayed, so I won't have any spare money to go to the WOW this next weekend...the big bummer about that is this is the Batmobile's LAST tour the commercials say!
majorhoy: Where is everybody?

aikidodoc: Adopting a 13 year old boy from Bulgaria who is a huge batman fan (which is how I came on this site by a google search. Any help in finding a bulgarian batman comic source would be greatly appreciated. The DC Comic website said they couldn't help me.
