Not all toys are for kids. Some “big kids” have toys too. South Charleston held a car show in conjunction with their very successful Summerfest over the weekend, and the PopCult cameras were drawn to this event by the presence of a replica of a certain coolest car in the world…the 1966 TV Batmobile.
We are bringing you a photo essay of the car show, with the first third of it devoted to the aforementioned Batmobile, and after that, with not too many captions, you will see some of the other wonderful “toys” that were on display around the Mound and on D Street.
The truth is, there were so many cool cars at this show that we’re splitting up this photo essay and will bring you part two on Friday, in the PopCulteer. But now…TO THE BATMOBILE!!!
There were plenty of other cool cars on display. Plus era-appropriate music was provided by Charlie Cooper (seen right). This was a great event, and just to prove that I’m not totally Batmobile-obsessed, we’re going to bring you some images of the other cars at the Summerfest car show.
However, if you missed your chance to see The Batmobile in person, fear not, citizen! The Caped crusaders Cruzer will also be on display at ShockaCon, the weekend of September 20. Watch PopCult for more details.
We may even get to see the Batmobile interact with a Dalek. But now, let’s look at the other cool rides, including some absolutely beautiful Chevy Bel Airs that I wouldn’t mind parking in my garage.
If I had a garage.
