Thursday Twister: Movie Chase Car

It is Thursday... or post-hump-but-not-fri-day as it is known all around the globe -- but that means it is time for DT's weekly spleen pain causing quiz, the Thursday Twister.  Time to ignore that enlarged vestigial glands and focus on finding the best car for a movie chase.  You pick the car, you pick the movie.



Nothing makes a better combination in a car chase like a big floppy chassis and a torque crazy V8 -- and who better to drive than Mr Bruce Wayne in his black tights. My movie chase car is this 1976 Chevrolet Corvette Batmobile here on eBay offered for $17,500 located in Philadelphia, PA.  The chase starts with Batman chasing after the Joker, but of course the Joker is going to blow up the Batmobile with some crazy weapon and then Batman needs to engage in hand-to-face combat, but we'll get there later.

  1. Bruce Willis in a 1970 LS6 as a aging smoking and drinking detective with a beretta 92.
    Close to retirement but gets sucked into a case with murderous, drug dealing human trafficking, strip club owning Russians. I know, ultimate cliche but it is the kind of movies I like.

    1. You can't go wrong with a '70 Chevelle, ask Jack Reacher.

    2. Wait, so he's also going to have a 92 beretta?

  2. "Over $42,000 invested" and not one shot under the hood or underneath? Think I'll hold out for the supercharged Spiderman SS.

    2. THERE'S the money. Thanks for sharing. I was beginning to question the $42k number.

    3. You have to admit, those rocket launching tubes that surround the fuel filler are a GREAT idea. What could go wrong?

  3. Geez. What's the value on an Econo Batmobile with a replaced engine. Turbines gone!

  4. This is Batman's retirement vehicle. Arthritis in his hands and feet force him to drive a slushbox. Lame
