And so, as our story slowly wends hither an’ *yawn*, Bunz & Katz with their stash of weapons arrive at the heavily guarded Impound Lot to retrieve their Scout Cruiser… Will they regain their craft with all it’s deadly alien technology, or will they settle for the Edsel?
Wul I don’t know pilgrim – they’d have to be pretty dumb to take an old Edsel over those… other two prime examples of the car customizer’s art. The BMB probably has more cool widgets but BB has more trunk space. And if there’s one thing I know a girl needs, human or alien not withstanding, it’s trunk space! Say, I wonder if Herbie is in there somewhere? Small, cute, high MPG, eco-friendly and sentient. (But he’s a moody little bugger.) Or maybe even KITT. He and Katz would have lots to talk about.
Ah, once more, such charming naïveté… Bunz thinks $11.73 is enough to get their scout craft out of impound… again, evidence of her lack of comprehension about “money.” By this time, storage fees on the Scout will have probably approached the national debt… which explains why the Batzmobile and the Green Hornet’s Black Beauty are still languishing in durance vile amid the weeds and rubbish… The networks will find it cheaper to cobble together modern replacements than to ransom the originals!
Well D-W you got me searching. I never knew the original ’66 Batmobile was actually a 1955 Ford/Lincoln concept car called the Futura. It was built in Milan Italy for 250,000 (Quite a bit in ’66.) and then customized for the TV show. Cool.
I knew that back when the show was airing. It would there was a special article about it in a magazine and the work was done by the famous George Barris. He also did the cars for several other series airing at about the same time. That includes the Munsters Etc.
If they can find their spacecraft, then all that seems necessary is to lever their craft onto a hand cart and leave behind their $11.73 and a note to keep any change care of Bunz & Katz. It would seem that the people of the [unguarded] lot should register a complaint about additional fees to our intrepid space invaders. But over such an issue they might not really want to go public. So far maybe only Officer Moxie really has figured them out. The cop in the previous adventure knows their story outline, but a wagon load of real crooks might beat out the value of a “pair in the bush” sorts — with might at first sound like an unbelievable science fiction story. A trip of thousands of years just to destroy us, just frankly before maybe we do the deed ourselves. [There is a joke in that of course.]
And that large stash of weapons and ammo left unattended, (uh) space aliens coming to pick our tomatoes seems more believable than that it remains there and intact.
Edsels are actually collector’s items – https://www.csmonitor.com/1996/0411/11181.html
A car too far ahead of it’s time.
Well if it hadn’t been for that really stupid-looking front end…
I believe somebody described it as looking like “A Cadillac sucking on a lemon…”
That it had a “horse collar” front end. Now you know it had to be back in the day for people to even know what a horse collar was.
