The triumph and (temporary) tragedy of the WCGB Ecto build.

Quietly, in the background, for years now, Bryan Fear and Eric Eseke (both of whom belong to the West Coast Ghostbusters and helped build Ernie Hudson his convention pack) have been working on their Ecto-1, getting it road and show ready. Under the gun a number of ways, the guys got it running just in time for San Diego Comic Con, where the car OWNED the streets of the Gaslamp Quarter – a natural companion to the official Sony Ecto parked inside the convention center, at the HotWheels / Mattel display.

Sadly, the engine, which both gentlemen knew was operating on borrowed time, failed them on the trip home, but that’s probably not the last we’ll hear of the car. Read all about the project here, and check out JD’s pics!
