Awesomeness Available

I like TV and I like cars, so this looks like a big ol’ slice of

heaven. The Petersen Auto Museum here in L.A. is hosting an auction

of George

Barris-designed vehicles from his career in Hollywood, where the mad

genius of vehicular delight brought us the original Batmobile, the

General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard, KITT from Knight Rider and many

others.

Cooler still — you can buy a piece of history in your pajamas. The

auction allows for online bidding. Anyone going after the Black

Beauty from The Green Hornet had best be warned — that’s been my

favorite car since I was old enough to accidentally release the

emergency brake on my parents car and almost kill my brother and me.
