It's been awhile since my last shout out to our friends at Autoblog. If you love movies and cars or simply movie cars, you should check them out regularly, as they occasionally point out when vehicles from classic films are up for sale or auction. The latest bit of cinephilia automobilia memorabilia they've come across is the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters. Just think of how cool you'd be driving down the street in this converted 1959 ambulance. And it will only set you back about $150,000.

But according to Aint it Cool News, you aren't just paying for the car from Ghostbusters; the vehicle was also featured in In the Heat of the Night. Plus it has all new interiors and rebuilt mechanics. Sure, that means you probably won't be sitting on the exact seats that Dan Aykroyd and the others sat on, but at least it might be more comfortable to ride around in. Of course, the true fan doesn't need comfortability. He or she might even prefer the car needed, "some suspension work and shocks. Brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear-end. Also new rings, mufflers, a little wiring," and for it to cost only $4800 (though this would be for the car as it looked prior to becoming the Ecto-1, so who would want that?) If you can't afford it, I'm sure these guys are interested in purchasing the car. Their fake Ecto-1 was apparently totaled on New Year's Eve.
