The 1980’s were a wonderful time that spawned movies that you couldn’t imagine studios giving the green light to today. Among these were the the famed Ghostbusters films which brought together Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, several slimy villains, and of course the ghostbusting mobile, AKA Ecto-1:

You can be sure that ghosts were busted in style in this 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor which is actually a modified hearse/ambulance– complete with flashing lights and siren! The stretched out monstrosity was piled high with a mountain of ghost-catching equipment.

Ecto-1 was first put up for sale last year for the whopping price of $149,998 and again more recently on eBay for around $50,000! Quite a chunk of change indeed.

Here’s a clip of Ecto-1 in action:
