    I remember the Bat Copter and the James Bond Lotus, and I still have my Starsky & Hutch Grand Torino!

    Those were some great Die Cast, thanks for the flashback!

    I have a plastic Batmobile sitting on my shelf right now that looks very similar. It’s by Simms INC.

    Incredible powers?! Super-human exploits?!?!

    Well at least they were right about how cool the Batmobile is.
