Local Car Show – I attended the yearly car show at Eisenhower Park, NY, and was surprised at the automobiles that appealed to my horror/sci-fi/super-hero tastes.

The highlights were the two Munster cars:

Eddie Munster (now in his 60s) and Marilyn (now in her 70s (?) were at the event signing autographs, taking pictures and talking about the TV show.

The Batmobile looked magnificent in person. Despite the overcast day it shined like black glass.

The Munsters – a monster sitcom for Halloween


I have both seasons (all episodes) on dvd and generally pull them out around the second or third week of October.
