While at the Auto Rama in Dallas (2013) there was a stand specifically catered to those comic book fans.  In the booth area there were the batmobiles from the past and the present.  Needless to say I could not resist!!!!

I used to watch Adam West’s Batman series when ever I had a chance, in my younger years.



It looks meaner than I remembered…maybe it is a “modern” look that was added, but I still like.

This was by far my all time favorite Batmobile, bar none.

bat4 bat5 bat6 bat7 bat8 bat9

Every Batmobile has the afterburner exhaust…I think

bat10 bat11

This, unfortunately, was my least favorite of them all.  I think it has to do with the generation gap.

Here is the rest of the photos I managed to take before I had run out of room on the SD card….Naturally a MOPAR will start out 🙂

I felt this would have been just as good a Bumble Bee Car.  This next one is a car I would want if I were a traveler

As I turned around there was an all Nissan Booth….lucky me

This looked like a beast and that it could set some good times on a track.  It appeared to be a 930 slant nose

Yet another GT40 car

I have always wanted a Vette in this generation.  This to me is the greatest of them all.

Ok I had some time to get away from the onslaught of work.  When I had entered the convention center,where the event was held, I was greeted by something totally wicked

yes that is two blowers on a Chevy engine…not waisting any people’s time who had went to the venue they made sure this was greeting you at the front door!!!!  And here is what it was in….plus the specs


Just look at those blowers!!!!

Now most of the show was dominated by Chevy vehicles, followed very closely by the Blue Ovals (Ford).  I personally am favored towards MOPARS and though they were there, Texas loves the other two more… in point

Next in line were two vehicle made by House of Hot Rods & Classics, based out of Texas.  I am a fellow bike rider and was pleased to see this piece of work along with…you guessed it….another chevy


Just bare metal!!!

Next is something not just Ford followers can appreciate, but rather almost all interested in Motorsports!!!  Now I was informed this was a kit car, but WOW just look at this!!!!

Because the glare was so bad I could not get any picture of the inside of the GT40, but was lucky that this next Blue Oval did have a window glare preventing a shot of the inside

AutoRama 2013 Texas (pt.1)

With all the test and study material I have been busy with, I needed to get away for a few. As luck would have it there was a car show this past weekend. It included mostly Domestic vehicles, but there was the import here and there. To say the least it was quite a treat for me. Right when I pulled up it had seemed there was a few cars in the parking lot that could have been part of the show..
parking lot 1

Here is the first of the two…both are chevy powered

It appears somethings are missing and others are bigger than average (exhaust collector to atmosphere)

I am guessing A/C might be missing on this
parking lot 4

This was the only "bling" part on this vehicle.  As can be seen with my ugly self in it.

It is a bit late here but I will update other photos of what was inside so keep checking back throughout the day….

Love and History

Personally I tend to lean towards things (cars, motorcycle, trucks, clothing, toys, electronics) that have a history.  Maybe because it reminds me of my past in some form.  This can be seen in my choice of vehicles, and has been from early on.  The Z car for example has always been fascinating to me through out its years even though, when first introduced, my parents were still children.  And the same goes for Porsche as the 356 is a car that grabs me by my soul.  Here is a clip provided and created by Magazine out of Japan from their visit to Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
