Paul Harborne of Sedgley, West Midlands spent three years and approximately $156,000 renovating a classic 1960 Cadillac Miller-Meteor and turning it into the iconic Ecto-1 car from the Ghostbusters films. Harborne is “getting even more attention than ever, with the upcoming release of Ghostbusters reboot film scheduled for next year ramping up interest in the quirky car.”
“We always end up watching the film when it’s on, even though we know every line – it’s kind of surreal to think the car in the garage is the car that was in that film.”
“I’m sure we’ll see the new film when it’s out too.”
Paul has even started using the traffic-stopping car as a source of income, as it has proved very popular for weddings and proms.
