LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WLFI) — There was a  real "head-turner" this weekend at the Taste of Cass County. 

Mark Racop from Fiberglass Freaks in Logansport has been building Batmobiles for years. Racop said his team has built 27 Batmobile replicas to date.

He also said they are the only company in the world licensed by DC Comics to make them. Original batman actors Adam West to Burt Ward have even collaborated with Racop.

Racop said driving the Batmobile around usually turns a head or two.

"When driving a Batmobile, it is unlike any other vehicle that you could ever possibly imagine," said Racop. "The number of people who are giving thumbs up or that are honking, waving, singing the Batman theme. Even open up their van to be able to take a better picture, it is absolutely wonderfully nuts."

 Racop will take his Batmobile to the Fiberglass Freaks' Anniversary ComicCon event next month.
