Elgato Peralta Art Batmobile Designs!

I'm a huge fan of the art of Fernando (Elgato Peralta Art), who's created a stunning vision of his own mythological sci-fi space universe, illustrated it prolifically and shared it with the world here:


Already it's a staggering mind-blowing body of work, and it seems like there's much more to come.

I emailed Fernando and asked if he might like to design an original Batmobile for me to share here on The Batmobile Show.

He designed THREE!

And here they are!




Thanks again to Fernando for these beautiful designs.
Again, check out his artwork at:

My Pinewood Derby Car

DIY Batmobile Pinewood Derby Cars!

In third grade I lost the Pinewood Derby.  Big time.
I built my own car 100% myself after bedtime one night (not a Batmobile.)  I stayed up with a dimmed lamp and a jack-knife and chiseled out a crude blocky hunk of junk with a rubber monster finger puppet taped to the driver's seat.
My car got last place, but was the only car in the race built by a boy scout.

But I digress.

Time for some DIY Batmobile Pinewood Derby Cars!

No car is more homemade than a Pinewood Derby Car.  And no Pinewood Derby Car is cooler than the Batmobile.  So here's a random collection of Pinewood Derby Batmobile pictures I put together.

Sorry for the lack of image credits.  The pics are from a folder I put together a while ago.  Some of the file names will give you a clue as to the image source.
