RIP George Barris

George Barris was the custom car builder who created the original Batmobile, and many other vehicles you may be familiar with from old TV shows. (But not the Monkee mobile.)

Oddly, I went off on one of my little internet wanders earlier today, looking for replica Mercury bodyshells, thinking how cool it would be to put Tesla running gear under something that looked like the Hirohata Merc, one of Barris’ most famous cars.
