My vote for best caption so far.
Speaking of the batmobile, I had a friend (many years ago), who was thoroughly convinced the batmobile was the fastest vehicle on the planet. At the time, the blue flame was. And I'm sure an AC cobra would have spanked it too, among many many others.
Craig Breedlove is rolling over in his grave.

OK I'm just assuming he's dead, but that seems safe.

I don't think he is. My uncle knew him somehow back in the day.

Actually, I just googled him and it appears he is alive and well. He held the record for longest skid. I was always entertained by this when I was a kid.

Yeah me too; I'm not sure why because I'm not generally a fan of so-called motor sports, but reading about the Bonneville Salt Flats landspeed record mania really captured my imagination. I actually went there once, maybe around 1993 or so, and drove my little Geo Prizm as fast as it would go on the salt. It was otherworldly and wonderful. The salt didn't come off the car for about a week though.

Batman needs a push from the rear.

Batman needs a jump.

Batman wants you to bend over and look under the hood.
