Good afternoon, my name is Bill Kinney and our family lives in Rogers AR. For the past 25 years we have been decorating for Halloween. We started with 12 mail ordered tombstones and having a party for the neighbors Maxing out with almost 200 kids and parents. Our kids are adults now and the parties are gone. But we still decorate heavily. Thank you for letting me join.

It is a 1950 Rolls Royce Sedan de Villa with an open air or closed driver compartment , this one was used in the movie Batman Returns. The kids love it, some families bring the kids by just to get a new picture as the kids grow.

Welcome to the jungle! We got fun and games! Very cool car and is it the actual one used in the movie? If so screen used props are awesome!!
Glad to be on here it’s already lots of fun. Thank you for the info on the car, yes it is the one in the actual movie. After hours they used it to take the Batman main actors back to their hotel. It’s a fun car. Regards

Looks awesome! Tell me something, what's the secret to propping up those tombstones without having to pick them up after a stiff wind all the time? I find the plastic stakes that come with foam stones just don't stand up to a stiff breeze.
Thank you, I take piece of grey duct tape and put on top of the tombstone so it is on the top and about an inch down the back of the tombstone then put a sheet rock screw and put it in top of the tombstone, create a 24” or so loop of monofilament fishing line and loop it around the screw. ( the tape prevents the monofilament from tearing into the foam). I then put a grade stake from Home Depot behind the tombstone, pull the monofilament tight and attach it with a binder clip. I’ve been doing this for the past 18 years and is the easiest and holds really good. I’ll try to take some pictures to make it easier to understand. I throw the plastic stakes away.
Regards
