Default A hearse dressed up as a Ghostbusters-mobile

I was in the London ON Santa Claus parade on Saturday evening.

Again this year there was this hearse dressed up as a Ghostbusters Ecto-mobile.

Pumping out the "song" as it rolled down the street.

Same unit should be in the Woodstock parade this coming Saturday night,notice the ghost has a shriners hat,I believe its the Aylmer ont shriners unit, they also have a blues brothers cruiser that goes with it,the London Ont shriners had an old suburban ambulance they had chopped down to make a hillbilly blud wagon,hoping the Ridgetown firefighters show up with their retired chiefs motorized lazy boy chair complete with lights and siren,they also have a motorized picnic table with lights and siren.

The Blues Brothers were there in front of the hearse and so were the hillbillies.

I have seen them at many parades over the years.

I know the hillbillies will be in Milton this Sunday. Never noticed
the Ghostbusters in Milton before.

Small world EH !



James

I haven't ever seen either of the Ghostbusters movies
so I am no fan. I did buy a DVD with both movies on it but have never watched it and have no idea where I put it to watch it now.

I posted the photos because it was a hearse and the real Ghostbusters was a ambulance. A 59 MM Futura. I have a 62 MM Futura myself.

Just a all around procar related post !


On the Shriner side of things... my dad was a Shriner and did parades
but I know nothing about being a Shriner. I was 11 when my dad died and never got to know much about that stuff.

I guess that they get paid to be in the parades and use the money to help sick kids. Maybe other PCS members are Shriners and can shed some light on Shriners and Parades.


Thanks,
Darren

Very interesting and a lot or work went into it. Had the removed the landau bars and put glass in, it would have been better.

But to each their own.

I know a little of the shriners,they are big kids who go to parades with every possible thing you can imagine,and have a riot,HOWEVER they are the biggest supporters of children,and of burn units for kids,in the world,we would be lost without them,other than that a shriner should fill in any blanks I have left out.

I thought everyone has seen Ghostbusters!! Its on TV at least once a week. Cheesy, yes, but still a classic.
You need to find that copy and check it out, and the first one is better (I think anyway) but the car is great in both!!!
If it was not for me seeing this movie in the theater when I was 9-10 I may never have gotten into these cars. If that happened you may never have gotten to know my smileing face. Wouldnt that have been sad?

Darren,
As I said its not about ANY disrespect for anyone or any group......Shriners or otherwise..My father was a Shriner as are other family members...and as stated they do a tremendous job of supporting kids and other charities......we even have a Shriners Burn Center here in town that has car shows and other fund raisers.....

Its just my opinion about the VEHICLE........I think they ruined a good looking car..but then there are 100's if not 1000's of "ruined" cars.....I like some and dislike others......

By the way I DO think you have a very BEAUTIFUL looking PROCAR(S).......
very elegant and dignified looking !!

Thanks again for the post !!!

Dont worry, no one here is taking it as any disrespect. We all get worked up anytime we see a pro car meeting this fate, especally when it is not even the right type of car. All of us have dealt with hey its the gostbusters comment at shows and cruises and it just gets under our skin.
