The DeLorean, Bond's DB5, the Bandit's Trans Am. Sometimes it's an iconic car that makes a movie as much as Reynolds' mustache or Connery's brogue. (Did Bullitt even have a plot? Your guess is as good as ours.) Well, this just in, today from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m., you can catch not one but two of Hollywood's most testosterone-fueled bad boys as they saunter throughout Texas in advance of Christopher Nolan's newest edition to the Batman franchise, The Dark Knight Rises, which set to drop on July 20. The Tumbler - the tank-like car first appearing in Batman Begins - and the Bat-Pod - the motorcycle making its debut in The Dark Knight - will be parked at the Wal-Mart at Skillman and 75, 6185 Retail Road in Dallas. Stop by, snap a pic and take a gander at pure Hollywood muscle.
