We Love Batman

Nobody loves the Dark Knight as much as we do here at Carl's. Don't believe us? We have custom built Bat-vehicles right here at Carl's Body Shop. We even have toolboxes and walls covered with the Batman Logo.

1966 Batmobile

The Batmobile featured an impressive array of bat-gadgets. In addition to the "atomic turbine engine" (the car was actually powered by a blueprinted Ford V-8), the car had a nose-mounted chain slicer, lasers, rockets, radar, an on-board telephone and computer, dash monitor, and police beacon. This Batmobile was capable of a quick 180 "bat-turn" thanks to two rear-mounted 10′ parachutes, and equipped with a smoke-emitter and nail spreader to discourage pursuit. Changes were made during the run of the series, including different license plates, steering wheel, and the addition of extra gadgets including the rear-facing camera and battering ram.

The Jokermobile

Our custom made Jokermobile! The hood of our Jokermobile is a custom graphic made by our Graphics Department! Batman without the Joker just isn't Batman, so how can we have the Batmobile without the Jokermobile?

The Batcycle, Batman & Robin Motion Picture

Batman inevitably utilized a sportcycle – the Batcycle – in his efforts to thwart the forces of evil. The Batcycle features a side car with a portable go-cart resting on it for Robin. As Batman slows down or stops the Batcycle, Robin is propelled off of the side car and becomes mobile in his own right in the go-cart. Robin's cart is an integral part of the Batcycle rig. During the 1960s when the first 'Batman' motion pictures were made, the Batcycle was specifically created for these early cinematic events.
