    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.
