The crew from “Grip Extrem” came to visit my “cave” for a episode of their TV show. They came to see the batmobile, but did a quick interview with KITT first. Then took a drive to sunset blvd. to get the reaction of the people seeing us driving down the strip.
I actually let the host drive the Batmobile! He was a great guy and I had a fun time chatting about his favorite cars. The host has the job I want! He gets handed the coolest, latest, most expensive cars, and then he drives them around for a while and before he gets bored moves on to the next one! In fact after shooting with me for a day, they were off next to Bob Dullam’s cave to drive his Tumbler! To say the least I was a bit jealous! Here’s a teaser for the show that will air next week!
For those starcar fans in the UK or if you are going there any time soon, check out the starcars at THIS museum!
It runs to Sept. 5th!
