This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions!
I love this plan! I’m excited to be a part of it
This month, just in time for Halloween, the 1984 supernatural classic, Ghostbusters is back in NY theaters for one day. yes, just one sneaky day, Thursday October 20th, in all it’s proton pack wielding, Zule worshipping, Gozer chasing, gate keeping, Stay Puft awesomeness!
Here at Cine Meccanica,we’re devoted to not only vehicular themed films, but also to a long list of beloved, iconic film vehicles. From the matte grey 1955 Chevy One-Fifty schooling GTO in Two Lane Blacktop, to the screaming chicken emblazened 1977 Pontiac Trans Am chase car in Smoky & the Bandit. The Batmobile, Elenore, the Blues Mobile, Bullitt’s Fastback, Christine, and all the beyond cool choppers, bobbers, hot rods, and Barris cars that permanently warped our rebellious, speed crazed, outlaw worshipping, drifter minds. And then…there was Ecto-1!
Ghostbusters (1984), follows independent paranormal removal experts Peter, Egon, Ray, Winston and last, but not least, Ecto -1, a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor limo-style endloader combination car (ambulance conversion). Purchased by Ray Stantz for $4800 (over $9800 in 2011 dollars). Perhaps not a prudent use of the startup’s only funds, but reliable at least, needing only a little work…”suspension work and shocks, brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear end…, new rings, mufflers, a little wiring….“
The Ectomobile (referenced as such in the song ‘Cleaning up the town’ on the film’s soundtrack) is named on-screen through the introduction of its finished form (presumably once Ray was done with repairs) with the license plate shown reading “Ecto-1”.
Off to the flicks!
