Dude's fit for his age, but not that fit.
Oh come on now it's fantasy. 😜

They also had the OGs names on the lockers after the remodel, there's gonna be a LOT of new recruits :shock:

Yes, the game maker has said from the start that Spirits Unleashed is its own canon.

Also, do you often spend a few hundred bucks without a little research?
Always been wanting a switch. Figured GBSU could be an extra bonus. But No, im not attached to my phone like most people.

Do you always act like a prick with little empathy?

Damn, Aykroyd still nails it.
Agreed. Couldn't help myself. Watched the whole cinematic.

That was pretty neat that Spirits Unleashed begins right where Afterlife ends and does a construction montage to get its AU canon to a start.

Also, was reading Marvel's Daredevil: Born Again Disney+ series films in NY from February to December 2023. So I guess production teams for DD and GB might bump into each other, lol.

All that money Winston used to refurbish the firehouse and the Ectomobile still looks like the recto lol. And the lockers still have the OG's names.

As much as the Ecto is iconic, it's just beyond impractical these days. It wouldn't be worth the maintenance upkeep.

If Winston kept Ray's Occult afloat for decades, he likely will do the same for Ecto-1. Financial insecurity isn't an issue anymore, no matter how scare and expensive Cadillac parts increasingly become. Though getting repeatedly sued for property damage... that's a whole other problem for Winston to mitigate.

So? He likes it that way and it honors the first team.

Ecto-1 is in a rare position that it can carry on as one of the iconic aspects of the franchise even if eventually Dan and Ernie retire from it.

I get the arguments that the car is at the point in its life where practically, it should be put out to pasture... Especially as someone who himself has argued other aspects about the car with a certain degree of real-world practicality... But I'd be apprehensive and hesitant about retiring the 1959 Cadillac Ecto-1 seeing as the prop car/s are now at a point where they can be used for further adventures as the Ghostbusters' mode of transportation. With the loss of Harold, and the growing possibility that Bill won't be back, it wouldn't hurt to hold onto some of the franchise's iconic landmarks.

You know... those are valid points. I keep forgetting this isn't the same Ecto that was in the first two movies, only PARTS of it are from Ghostbusters 2. I keep forgetting that for Afterlife, they basically built a new car for it. Just thinking real-world, the model of the car is pushing 80... and if we get another 2 movies with it, I find the fantastical ghosts more realistic than using a 1959 Caddy as a daily work car in modern New York City XD

They acquired/built new engines for both cars, and rebuilt a lot of the underside of the one they bought specially for the production as it was practically metallic Swiss cheese... I wouldn't say that they built a while new car, though.

I had an idea I thought would be cool.

What if within the movie universe of course Cadillac put the Miller Meteor back into limited production especially for the ghostbusters reopening after so long.

It’d be a modern day version not 50s style. So it’d be whatever the Miller Meteor would like in 2023. Ya know how they revive certain cars with retro styling.

I imagine the red fins would now function as the actual tail lights at the back instead of the bulbs sticking out.

The original Ecto can still be used by Winston and Ray or just certain occasions.

That’d be really cool! Maybe a 2002 Eldorado converted into a hearse/ambulance.

Cadillac is making these. Was not aware til now. They’re actually different even though these pics look the same. Ones an suv and the other is like a wagon.

The Celestiq

This is pretty much what I meant by the tail lights. So still have the fins (maybe not as big) and they light up in the back.

So we've got the working title for the movie and it drops in about 13 months. Anyone think we'll get anything official before the year is out? Personally I'm hoping for something for Christmas. :) A minuscule one sentence update. A picture.
