No, it is not the real Batmobile. Yes, the picture is a bit cheesy. No, you can't actually drive the Batmobile. Still, the Batmobile is such an iconic vehicle, you cannot pass the chance to get a picture in it.
Aside from all of the celebrities, vendors and other fun, the Motor City Comic Con usually has some famous vehicles. The Batmobile has to be one of the top ten most recognizable television vehicles. Also in that group would be the General Lee, the Beverly Hillbillies truck, Baretta's corvette, Starsky and Hutch's Gran Torino, KITT, the Monkees Mobile and a few others. Everyone knows the Batmobile.
Cuzz Gekas and I were covering the MCCC 2016, when we came up the legendary 1955 Lincoln Futura Batmobile. We had to take the picture. It's like the typical tourist picture. Everyone does it.
I did not get to drive the Batmobile (and Cuzz is probably thankful for that), but I did enjoy the brief fantasy of it. I also enjoyed the rest of the convention and I look forward to the MCCC 2017.
