Illustration for article titled Batmobile Rolls Into West Virginia Shop For Repairs

Imagine you're a grease monkey minding your own business, turning wrenches at your shop when a return customer asks you for help fixing up his Batman Forever Batmobile. Pretty wild, huh? Well, that's what happened to David Smith of St. Albans, West Virginia. Indie film producer Robert Perez acquired the car for use in a movie about a retired Batman, whose grandson discovers the car buried in a garage and decides to take up the cape. Smith's part in all this was basically to take a replica of the Batmobile from the hokiest Batman movie ever and make it drivable, installing smaller tires and trimming some of the body work. The car will be auctioned when the movie is complete, so if you're interested or have a sick sense of style, keep your eyes peeled. [WVGazette]
