A Terrible Job, You Did One: The World's Crappiest (But Still Street-Legal) Batmobile

June 2, 2010


Ever wondered how good a Batmobile a man armed with $100 and no tools could make? Well now you know: a really, really shitty one. I mean this thing is bad. And not bad as in bad-ass, bad as in you lost all four hubcaps attempting a burnout at that last stop sign.

Gabe, the hero of our story, purchased this wrecked 1994 Pontiac Grand Am last summer from Dave's Towing in Ann Arbor, Michigan for $100.

After a few necessary repairs, work proceeded: Gabe sawed off the crushed roof and built a custom frame for the new roof and windows. Inspired by the Batmanesque charm of his creation, Gabe then rigged up and riveted on fins, reworked the nose, and spray-painted the car matte black.

The car even features high-tech theft-prevention gadgets the likes of which even Wayne Industries couldn't develop. When thieves tried to steal the car last year, the steering wheel broke off. In the process of trying to hotwire the car, they also fixed the brake lights.

Gabe's selling the deathtrap on Craiglist for $600 if you're tired of living or insist on fighting crime the old fashioned way: leaking oil onto a flattened cardboard box in your driveway.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots of the OMG CAN I PLEAAAAAASE DRIVE IT TO PROM?!

Thanks to Fally and David B., who have both made better Batmobiles out of a bedsheet hung over the couch and a couple barstools.
