The new Ghostbusters car looks a lot like the old one

When there's a reboot set in your blockbuster schedule, what you gonna drive?

The answer, according to Paul Feig, is something entirely familiar.

The director for the Ghosbusters reboot-stroke-female-spin-off has taken to Twitter to reveal the new Ecto-1, the car set to cart Melissa McCarthy & co on their haunted adventures. And yes, it's a hearse.

Ghostbusters

Following in the footsteps (or tyre treads?) of the original Ghosbusters Ecto-1 - which converted a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor - the new design is built around an early 1980s Cadillac, which could either be a 1983 Cadillac Superior or a 1984 Cadillac Fleetwood. 

It's a promising choice from Feig, suggesting the new film is both aware of its roots and attempting to be progressive. So long as they don't attempt a dubstep remix of Ray Parker Jr.'s original theme tune, we'll be content to sit through the new offering.
