Default 1960 Miller-Meteor/Cadillac Movie Car Attempt at Six Flags Fiesta Texas

Couldn't find any previous posts about it, forgive me if poor search skills today.

I found this unfortunate vehicle at Six Flags Fiesta Texas last week. Best as I can tell, appears to be a combination car with jump seats removed, or an endloader hearse. The interior seemed fairly unmolested. I note the Federal Signal Model 18 as well as the C5GB.

It of course, seemed to have tons of attention from parkgoers. I wish there was a way to make these vehicles more appreciated in their original context, but it is what it is.

What can I say, for a GhostBuster car, although the year is obviously wrong, it is not terrible. However, I am personally not a fan of the whole GB thing.

Best of all they have not destroyed the coach. It could be made stock again without much hassle. However we all know it won't be cause more folks think its neat this way. Sixty is my favorite year hate to see it screwed up this way.

Appears to be 50,000 mile unit sold recently in Texas. C-W Coach Sales offered a one day sale of $9500 when it went off radar at which time it was painted completely camo.
