I know the latest Batman movies redid the entire series, including the Batmobile.

But for many of us who walk around with an older persons skin, there's only one real Batmobile. It's the one we grew up with on the Batman 1960's TV series. It was the one car we all really wanted!

So it was with a measure of sadness that I read the story below.

(AP) - The man who created the Batmobile used in the original TV series has died. His name was George Barris - and he built custom cars for TV shows like "The Munsters." He also crafted "Black Beauty," the car Bruce Lee tooled around in on the TV show "The Green Hornet." Barris, who was 89, also customized cars for a number of rich private collectors and he tricked out tour buses for many rock stars.
