MARK RACOP, 1966 Batmobile Replica Car Maker : Part 3


Now back to our regular program : Part 3 of the Mark Racop BAT-BLOG Interview!

Bat-Blog : Do you collect any vintage toys, if so, what kind?

Racop : I collect 1966 Batman toys and photos. I have a decent Star Trek and Star Wars toy collection. My wife Jill, on the other hand, has over 1,000 dolls and action figures of almost every kind - from the Green Hornet to Thundercats; from Mermaids to custom-made dolls that she makes.

Bat-Blog : Have you met George Barris & what does he think about you making these cars of yours?

Racop : I met George Barris once, but for only a few minutes before he was whisked away to the airport. We did not have a chance to discuss replica building.

Bat-Blog : Have any of these cars ever been featured in a Commercial or TV Show?

Racop : My first car, the one I built when I was 17 years old, has been featured in two commercials, a music video, and in the fan film "StarTrek vs. Batman." Our current cars have been featured in several newspapers, a couple of magazines, and on the news in both Indiana and Ohio.

Speaking of TV news broadcasts, here's PART TWO of that ground breaking news story!
