Batmobile glides into Cleveland

Batman, the Dark Knight of Gotham City, skulks about in the shadows, blending in and fighting crime by night, only to slink away to Wayne Manor and into his alter ego, Bruce Wayne, during the day. Batman “shouldn’t wish to attract any attention” in public as he says in the 1960s "Batman" TV show.

However, from Thursday through Saturday, Batman is peeling back his veil of secrecy, ever so slightly, by allowing the famous Batmobile featured in the show to be on display at the Cleveland Buy Here Pay Here USA, at 440 3rd St. S.W.

“Come see the original Batmobile concept that has inspired generations of kids, movies, caped do-gooders, and drivers. This is the 1960s TV series model designed by the famed automotive 'Kustomizer' George Barris that has set the standard for superhero cool for over 50 years,” reads a Buy Here Pay Here USA press release. “No other automobile can claim bubble canopies, rocket tubes, the Bat Beam, a Detect-A-Scope, a flamethrower exhaust, and of course, a Bat Phone. Holy utility belt — this thing is loaded!”

The Batmobile will be making an appearance at the other Buy Here Pay Here USA locations in the area, in Chattanooga before appearing in Cleveland, in Dalton, Georgia, from March 15-17 and finally at the Dayton location, from March 22-24. Bring your children out to experience the excitement of seeing the Caped Crusader’s ride up close and personal. Take some photos with the car and it’s even been said that Batman and Robin might make an appearance.

Will they arrive unscathed? Will the Joker’s plot to take down City Hall delay their visit? Or will the Dynamic Duo prevail and save the day? Find out beginning on Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
