Have you ever fallen in love with something as a child and dreamed about one day having or building that thing? Well Mark Racop did dream and made that dream a reality. In Plymouth, Indiana there is an old gas station that has been restored to give us a look back in automotive history. Howard Park recently went through a major renovation. Krista had a chance to take a tour with Aaron Perri to find out about what went into all the features of Howard Park, and how they take sustainability into account.

    Have you ever fallen in love with something as a child and dreamed about one day having or building that thing? Well Mark Racop did dream and made that dream a reality. And what did he build? A BATMOBILE! Yes that right, a batmobile. What started as a project with some friends turned into a business where Mark and his team build certified batmobiles from the 60s show. We will take a tour of his shop to see how they do it. We will also find out about a Batman museum he hopes to open in the spring. Get more info here: www.FiberglassFreaks.com
