8 speed, Carbon Fiber, $375,000 showpiece. 

Cousin Chuck, BB1, owner of REEEEEL Convertibles, was able to speak with George Barris about the Batmobile.   Barris knew what others thought about the car, but that did not change his belief at all!  BB1 was wrong about the price but not the car. BB1, along with George Barris we're on both sides of Right and Wrong but both on the same page.   Barris, designer and owner of the Batmobile believed his car would sell for 4-5 million...He was right... It wound up selling for $4.2 million, to Rick Champagne, of Arizona, for his girlfriend, he said...The Batmobile, was the big
 surprise winner of the entire auction.

Of course the big event for me was seeing the Packard's and comparing to our great uncle Tom Lyle Williams 1934 and 1940 Packard's.

The Packard closest to Tom Lyle Williams 1940 one of a kind Packard Victoria.
