CADIL­LAC MILLER-ME­TEOR

Ghost­busters, 1984

Top Gear (Malaysia) - - Movie Cars -

The Ecto-1 was based on a 1959 Cadil­lac am­bu­lance con­ver­sion by the Ohio-based Miller Me­teor com­pany, a 20ft-long, three-tonne be­he­moth pow­ered by a 6.3-litre V8, with strong El­do­rado vis­ual cues. Dan Aykroyd, who co-wrote the script, en­vis­aged a darker, less car­toon­ish look, but the cin­e­matog­ra­pher, the great Lás­zló Kovács, gen­tly sug­gested that wouldn’t cut it in the film’s many night shots. The Ghost­busters’ car was cre­ated by Stephen Dane, who had worked on Ri­d­ley Scott’s mighty Blade Run­ner; he also cre­ated the pro­ton pack, par­ti­cle thrower and ghost trap.
