The White Knight: 2002 Chevrolet Camaro Batmobile & ’57 Chevy

Why does the Batmobile have to be black?  Sure, the big guy is known as the “Dark Knight” and shuffles around brooding like a rejected teenager, but why does everything have to be so dark?  Camouflage?  Sure, Mr Know-It-All, the dark colors are great for stalking around Gotham city at night, but what do you do during a snowy winter’s day?  You get a dang white Batmobile, like this 2002 Chevrolet Camaro turned into a ’57 Chevy found here on eBay bidding for $9,900 reserve-not-met with a few hours to go, located in Hattiesburg, MI.

Wow…somebody took an F-body Camaro and slapped on a bunch of fiberglass body panels to create a Belaro…I just don’t know what to say.  Except this isn’t a one-off custom…this was built from a kit available from EasyRods, creator of the ShoeBird and the Belaro we see here.

In all truth the front end looks shockingly well done, and even the tail fins are kinda cool looking; the only part that stands out is the raked windshield from the 4th gen Camaro…but that wasn’t the fault of the kit builder.  I guess what I am trying to say is that I was forced to drive around in a V6 slushbox 4-th gen Camaro I’d take the bus this one.
