    I've always wanted an old-timey fire engine. I figure it would be great fun to research them, save up money, find just the perfect specimen. Maybe even fly somewhere to go pick it up and drive it home cross country.

    Then I'd park it outside, invite some friends over to see it. A couple might say they will when they get a chance. But most would just say "Nice!" on FB, and that would be it. I'd go back inside. Maybe watch baseball or golf on TV. Then I'd go outside and look at it for a few minutes and then sit in it for a while. I'd go back in, check to see of bowling or poker is on TV. Nope. Back outside to look at it, maybe try to flag down a neighbor to talk about it. Try to take some good pictures of it for FB during the 'golden hour' when the lighting is perfect. Then I'd go back in and make dinner, and later in the evening I'd watch some stupid old movie on Amazon.

    And after that, I'd start looking into what it would take to buy a Batmobile.

    I've always loved that car. Nothing has ever come close to it's sheer coolness.

    Isn't it really a 1954 Lincoln show car, not a 1966?

    saying 1966 is because of the TV show...the futura was a 50s car...barris bought it for a dollar and made it into the batmobile for the film and TV show which started in 1966

    I'd like to have that. It would look great parked next to the '89 batmobile that I don't have in the cave I don't have. Or do I?:twisted:;)

    I've seen that in the past, must be a pretty limited market , but definitely a very cool car!

    1955...Lincoln Futura.


    I talked to a guy named Doug Heinz I think that was his name?

    He runs Gotham Crusiers in some place in Ohio... those cars that have all the features are pretty expensive...

    Could be over 100k.

    I found last Saturday I had the Hot Wheels Red Baron Car which I was actually looking for but had not really found. It was in with my Son’s Hot Wheels. Close enough for me.

    Looks cool but the dimensions seem a little off compared to the real one.
