The man who created the original 1966 Batmobile for TV had a funeral procession fit for a car king.
George Barris' casket was decked out -- and it was very Batmobile-esque.
Legendary car kustomizer and'66 #Batmobile creator George Barris was laid to rest today at Forest Lawn in Los Angeles today. Never did I think I'd say this, but this kustomized casket - complete with a Batmobile air brushed on its side and wings on top - is amazing. RIP George. Photo by Jason Cervantes.

Many classic cars followed the funeral procession on the way to Barris' Celebration of Life service held Saturday in Glendale, California -- and friends and family wore matching jackets commemorating Barris' love of custom cars.

"George always liked the big show, and the daughters and the granddaughters and the grandsons, we all put together this great send-off. A lot of work here," Barris' friend and publicist Edward Lozzi told KCBS.
Other famous TV vehicles included the truck from "Beverly Hillbillies" and KITT from "Knight Rider."
That's quite the list of famous clientele. Barris died at home Nov. 5. He was 89.
