35. Ghost Busters ECTO-1
Underneath Ecto-1 lies a 1959 Cadillac professional chassis. It was built by the Miller-Meteor Company as an ambulance/hearse combo (part of the end loader variety). Ironically, the car still looks great 30 years later. It’s often on display in LA at various auto museums. Movie studio execs also rented a black caddy to be used for the movie as the pre-Ecto-1 car. They ended up buying it and had it customized by George Barris to resemble Ecto-1 so they could use it as a promotional tool. Afterward, it sold at auction for $80,000! Sadly though, the original Ecto-1 is lying on a prop lot in Culver City, California wasting away. Fans started a petition to have studio execs restore the vehicle, but it the car is still there.
