We were floored when we heard the original Batmobile from the TV show circa 1966 sold for $4.2 million. George Barris, famed car customizer of the '60s and creator of the ride, had held on to the car and looks to have cashed his chips in at the right time. Talk about humble beginnings, Barris started with a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car that he bought for a buck and had 15 days and $15K to get the finished product to the studio and into the hands of Bruce Wayne.
