Another car we've never seen here on the forums... looks like Oklahoma?

That was our Ecto we did up for a couple of parades back in 2007.

Here it is with the roof rack:

Did it in a couple of days. The roof rack has since been dismantled and tossed. The Explorer belongs to a friend, and as far as I know, she's still got all the decals on it.

Has anyone done a conversion on one of these?

Image

I think an HHR might look pretty spiffy.

(appologies if it has been mentioned already, I didn't see anything about it prior to my post)

So what if it's made of rubbermaid containers? It's got lights, it has sound, everything you need for a run-and-gun conversion for Halloween!

This was made in 2004 by a group on my college campus for that years homecomming parade. They just tossed whatever crap they could on top an hour before the parade. It was cool seeing the car parked around campus for the rest of the year though.

It was a long weekend for our group, running the GBfans table at Spooky Empire and making a quick trip back to the Tampa Bay area for the Light the Night walk on Saturday, so forgive me for not posting anything on the new Ecto yet. It got very dirty going up and down I-4 so I am planning to take it and get it washed on Wednesday and then take some "official" photos. So I'll be creating a new thread here for the ECTO-1X very shortly...
To answer a few questions, the LED lightbar is amber and the roof rack is held on by a ratcheting luggage strap. The blue/black hoses on the driver's side are held on with 2 65-pound magnets.

Since I never finished the sunburst paint job on my 68, I've decided to strip it and spray it white, its original color.
Then add it to this topic in about 15 years from now.

That's not a modern car.
Technically, no. But it's not a hearse or ambulance so it's in the right place.
