Batmobile, London Bus, VW Ladybug

As of June 2016, we only saw the psychedelic microbus and the double decker bus on the two instances we drove by. Not sure where the other vehicles are.

Gorilla Fireworks - Batmobile, London Bus

Not only does this roadside fireworks stand have a huge inflated gorilla wearing sunglasses and America pants, but the parking lot boasts a Batmobile that you can sit in for photos, a Volkswagen Beetle painted like a ladybug, a psychedelic microbus, and a weird double-decker London-style bus with the score from the Revolutionary War proudly displayed on the side (America 1, England 0).

This is definitely seasonal, but seems active leading up to July 4th.

In Houston, Alaska. there is mock version of the cheap car from the original Batman TV show with Adam West. It pops up every year around the 4th of July and is right next to one the fireworks stands.
