Paul Feig, director of the new Ghostbusters film, has tweeted out the first images of the latest take on the Ecto-1. It's now based on a Cadillac hearse.
There are parents who take there kids trick-or-treating, and then there are Cooper's parents, who built him the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters with a push cart and put together a costume for him to match it. It only makes sense because last year the toddler rolled around the neighborhood demanding treats behind the wheel of a "custom built" DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future.
Star cars can live on in the hearts of movie fans, but as we learned with the DeLorean time machine used in Back to the Future, even some of the more popular cars can end up being forgotten about by the studio. Such is the fate that has befallen the lead car from the Ghostbusters franchise – a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance more affectionately known simply as ECTO-1.
UPDATE: This Kickstarter campaign has been shut down due to copyright disputes over the original images used to create the Blackprints.
