For those who don't know, Vivendi Games is planning on bringing the storied Ghostbusters franchise to game consoles later this year at the same time the Ghostbusters Blu-Ray is released. To help promote the game that will feature voiceover work by all the original actors (including Annie Potts, w00t!), Vivendi commissioned the creation of a restored Ecto1 that was sighted recently outside the headquarters of Best Buy in Minnesota. Aficionados of the franchise will be able to spot a few inaccuracies on this Ecto1 and it's not stated if this was an actual car connected to the movie our a build from the ground up, but otherwise the converted 1959 Cadillac hearse manages to pull our nostalgia strings quite well. Look for the game and Blu-ray release in late October, and you'll likely be able to see this Ecto1 in person if you have plans to attend Comic Con this year. Check out photos of the ghost-busting mobile in our gallery below and click the source for hundreds more minutia shots. Thanks for the tip, AJ!

      I believe that would be a converted ambulance, not a converted hearse (?)

      I am old enough that I can still recall in the mid-70's there were still Cadillac ambulances rolling around before they all were built on van or truck chassis.

        Although you're right about the ambulances, ECTO was a hearse... remember Ray and Winston driving it home over the bridge into Manhattan? It was jet black.

        Makes sense if you think about it... ghosts/hearse...

      Definitely one of the coolest movie cars of all time.

      Great movie, I was only 16 at the time. It inspired a local fraternity, whos frat house was three doors down, to build a cross between Ecto 1 and the Deathmobile from Animal House. Ah, those drunken fools. Those were the days.

      is it my eyes, his pants, or is the guy on the left getting excited about busting ghosts?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Probably excited about the Ghostbuster on the far left

      The ONLY car better...was Ecto 1A...and thas because it has THREE full size lightbars on it...
