Can you keep the Batwing and the Tumbler off the books so I can keep my new night job quiet?

I'll have enemies and will crave vengeance.

easily....but you might want to reconsider. I'm sure I can get them into a 3yr property class....that's a helluva deduction.
May even be able to get the Batwing qualified as a sec. 179 exp.
