There are still two years to go before we see Ben Affleck take on the mantel of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the argument about the Oscar winner's suitability for the role rages on. Today one very worthy commentator gave his thoughts on the subject- Adam West, who played Batman from 1966 to 1968 in a staggering 120 episodes of the eponymous television series as well as the 1966 film.

George W. Bush's Truck Sells For A Whopping $300,000


George W Bush Adam West Sean Connery

George W. Bush's truck - a 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch SuperCrew - has sold for $300,000 at auction, to raise money for a house charity that benefits U.S. military families. The white pickup truck was sold as part of the Barrett-Jackson auction house's sale of collectible cars in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The former President and his wife Laura Bush used the pickup at their ranch in Crawford, Texas, where they would frequently entertain guests, family and visiting dignitaries. "I haven't driven on a street in many, many years, but I have been able to drive this truck on my ranch," Bush said in a statement. To add value to the auction, President Bush signed the right airbag panel of the vehicle and the anonymous buyer also received a video of Bush driving the truck around his ranch, situated about 120 miles from his Dallas home. Proceeds from the sale benefit the Fisher House Foundation, a charity that provides free houses for families of military service members who are receiving medical treatment, according to MSN.com.

The question is, which vehicle would you rather own - George Bush's pickup truck, or the BATMOBILE? The latter - driven by Adam West in the original Batman TV series - was sold at the same auction for $4.6 million!  It ties the record for the highest selling movie of TV car at auction, with Sean Connery's famous Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger going for the same amount in 2010.

A Real Champagne Moment: Adam West's Batmobile Auctions At $4.6 Million


Adam West

Even Bruce Wayne would’ve had a battle getting his hands on this at auction; the original Batmobile, produced for the 1960’s ABC Batman TV Series starring Adam West, has gone at auction for an eye-popping $4.6 million.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the crowd in at the Barrett-Jackson home in Scottsdale, Arizona whooped and cheered with excitement as the price went up, whilst the auctioneer hummed the theme tune from the famous series until, eventually, the wonderfully named Rick Champagne made the winning bid on a car originally made for just $15,000 in just 15 days back in 1966. The bid means that the Batmobile ties the record for the highest selling movie or TV car at auction, with Sean Connery’s famous Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger also going for $4.6 million back in 2010. The Batmobile was constructed around a 1955 Ford Futura concept model and contains such handy Batman gadgets as a Batphone and an oil squirter made from lawn sprinklers. The real bonus though is that it's road legal, so Champagne’ll be able to take it for a spin around the block, and maybe fight some crime if he so fancies.

The winner was asked where he was going to store the car, to which he joked "in the living room. I'm going to tear down a wall and put in my living room."
