George Barris, Creator Of The Batmobile, Passes Away At 89

George Barris passed away recently and was 89 years old.  Though I always knew he created the Batmobile, one of my favorite cars. I did not know that he did so many other Hollywood icon vehicles too.

Some of his most famous cars include the original Batmobile, KITT from "Knight Rider" and the Munster Koach from "The Munsters" and the General Lee from the "Dukes of Hazzard."

What a brilliant guy!  He came up with endearing one of a kind creations, many of which are still recognized today.

AutoBlog: Certain Chrysler owners eligible for buyback program

FCA will buy back your vehicle!

"the buy-back and trade-in options are only for a small portion of the vehicles involved. Because Chrysler struggled to fix the problem and no repair was apparent, Rosekind said the buy-backs are reserved "for customers who didn't have a remedy." Buy-backs are for trucks and SUVs affected by three recalls that occurred in 2013 (recalls 13V-03813V-527 and 13V-529), that addressed a rear-axle pinion nut that could come loose and cause a loss of vehicle control. Those recalls covered 579,228 vehicles, including 2009-2012 Ram 1500, 2500, 3500, 4500 and 5500 trucks, 2009-2012 Dodge Dakotas, 2009 Chrysler Aspen and the 2009 Dodge Durango."

A Self Driving Truck?

So I ask, didn't these people ever see the 1986 movie Maximum Overdrive?  You do not give vehicles the ability to drive themselves.  They have no conscience, and could be controlled by a central source.  Dangerous future!

Carl's Jr - Superbowl Commercial

Carl's Jr has released their Superbowl commercial early to controversy.  The commercial has model Charlotte McKinney introduce us, in her special way, to the All Natural Carl's Jr Burger.  Some say this is sexist, and others say it is a step backwards.  But frankly how can they tell the sex of the burger? I also didn't see her walk backwards once.  I know, I watched it several times.  Seriously, why are people so hung up on a pretty lady, walking in, and getting attention.  This is exactly why this commercial is fantastic!  It does the job, and Charlotte deserves the attention.  Way to go for her, and for Carl's Jr to have the guts to keep the message simple, artistic, mysterious, sexy and still funny.  Reminds me of clips in Austin Powers movies.  I don't see anything wrong with it, and she is doing nothing crude or inappropriate. No reason to run from our natural tendencies to admire beautiful people, and eat burgers. A natural couple.

Batman Sideshow Statue Repaint - You Tube - Rafael Robledo Jr

I am always incredulous at the amount of raw talent that some individuals have.  This artist takes a Batman statue, removes the clothing, and does a full repaint.  The work is superb.  It is exactly what I aspire to do.  Always wonderful watching a master craftsman at work, and to see his techniques and methods for painting and designing various changes on statues.  This video is just one of many, and I urge you to watch when you can, just how the process takes shape.  Rafael Robledo Jr is the artist, my hats off to you sir!
