December 2010

Its been awhile.

The car has appeared in Minnesota, Pennsylvania and select shows in South Carolina and more are being booked as we speak. I am working out the details for an appearance with the cars creator, Dean Jeffires at this coming March's Amelia Island Concours D'Elegance 2011. More than likely the special introduction of the car will be Friday March 11 at 4PM at the Ritz Carlton ballroom. Mr. Jeffries has not seen the car in over 40 years!

As the Black Beauty from the new feature film is making its show rounds I, out of respect for their promotion, will lay low with the TV Black Beauty so as to not add any confusion.

2011 promises to be a big year with a lot of special projects in the works including the long awaited 1:18 scale die cast.

What is the meaning of the car's V194 license plate?

V194 said...

That5 has never been established. Some have suggested that since the Bat Boat manufactured was a Glastron V174 and they also manufactured a model V194 that Dozier had on his desk a brochure stating the V194 and it was taken from there. Some have also suggested it was a prop number as in "Vehicle 194" More than likely it was made up by the prop department.

I've read that (think posted by you), but I don't think I buy either answer. There must have been a good reason for even putting a license plate on the car.

I have seen lots of great cars like that but i can say that it was the one that shines from all. Nice design.
