#BATMAN NEWS: The Custom Coffin for George Barris, Creator of the #Batmobile

Here's some "Batman News" that's kinda sad but also very uplifting at the same time. We reported awhile back about the death of an American Icon, George Barris. For the few people who don't know who he is he is the guy who created the Batmobile. He was also a very famous "Car Customizer" and created many other famous cars like the Monkeemobile (Monkees TV Series) and the Munster Coach (The Munsters).

Anyways, I wanted to share this photo up above of his customized coffin that was made for him. It's sort of an homage to the classic Batmobile with the tail-fins and everything. It's so cool! I'm sorry, "cool" might not be the appropriate word, but it is a nice tribute to the man and his work. He went out in pure "Barris Style"!

Down below are a few videos taken at his funeral. The first one is of the room where they shared a George Barris "Interview" Video and it's a great tribute to the man. He is, and will always be, a legend!
