Earliest Known Officially Licensed 1963 Batmobile.

What is believed to be the world's first car that became an officially licensed Batmobile
was conceived and customized starting in 1960 by 23-year-old Forrest Robinson. After finishing the design, Robinson and a young friend, Len Perham, begun building the car in the Robinson family barn. Robinson completed the car in 1963-two years before the George Barris customization of the TV Batmobile was started. The "'63 Batmobile" is the earliest known car in existence that was sanctioned by a DC Comics licensee.

Your Say

I don't think my uncle Louie Lozko (we all called him "Letsgo Lozko") would have looked that cool riding around in a chickenmobile.

As for the bantam chickens, those little sumbitches are the living descendants of velociraptors. I wouldn't be messing with 'em.
