We used the car to promote our business, GameOn (located in the mall) in the St. Patrick's Day Parade. I wrangled a bunch of kids to wear video game costumes and walk with us... it was a blast, even though we blew our light fuses on the first block of the parade...


We brought up the end of the parade, blaring the siren and music... lots and lots of fun!

The last six months have been quite adventurous. We've become pseudo-celebrities, and we are constantly asked if we are "for real" Of course.... we always say yes



Pictures taken in... February at Horsetooth Res.

A few weeks ago I started getting emails on my myspace inviting the FC GBs to bring our car to the Red Rocks Subaru Meet, which is sort of an unofficial car show up in the mountains just barely west of Denver.

Sunday morning I got up early, tossed a bunch of common junk (frisbees and cd cases) into the bed of my car and
pulled back the bed cover to hide it all. Washed the car briefly and then met up with about a dozen WRX STIs that were completely decked-out for racing. We traded names and had some donuts, Shauna moved her stuff into my car and then we were on our way.



Somehow I managed to keep up with these subie beasts on the interstate, at times pushing my car over 105 mph. Let's just say I had to reposition the dish when we got there...

My Ecto was one of the first 30 cars to show up...



Running the lights and siren, and blasting out our GB mix cd, we attracted quite a crowd. After about a half our we blew our main power switch, melted the bugger. I shut everything down then Shauna and I walked around talking to people and enjoying the beautiful warm day.







Over 220 Subarus and other street racers showed up to this meet. I was one of four wagons there, the other three were a brand new 2006 Outback (white... grrrr!), an older green legacy from Fort Collins, and a black Volvo!

The best part of the day was being told by many groups of people that mine was the coolest car that showed up. I am not sure whether or not they knew about the Ferrari that was making its rounds, though

For Easter, we were invited to a Denver Hearse Club meet today. Basically a bunch of people were getting together and having an easter egg hunt in the Boulder Cemetary. I thought it sounded like a ton of fun.

After assurances that the meets happen regardless of weather, I pursuaded Austin to help me mount up the roof rack again for the day. I got all decked-out in black for the occaision. Trench coat, combat boots, purple tie, the woiks. I found it fun because I sooo much a hawaiian shirt and tevas kinda-guy.

It was quite a bit of fun, and I want to share some pics with you.


This is ALEXI, a hearse owned by Zachary Byron Helm, one of the coolest guys on the web (http://www.evilkicksass.com). Decked out with a pair of machine guns, a flame-thrower, an 8-rotator lightbar, and HUUUGE ****ING WINGS, this car is insane.







Just a few more...











The LOOKS we got... freakin awesome.

CU SPORT CAR CLUB SHOW!
Little story about the Colorado University Sports Car Club Show... April... 4th?




By some random twist of fate, my custom plates arrived on Friday. So... off to the DMV to grab 'em!

Anyway, we booked it down 287 through Loveland, Berthoud, Longmont, and finally Boulder. We arrived just as the show was starting, lights and siren blaring as we came down the street and into the parking lot. At registration the staff running the event were heard to say, "Okay, you are my new hero," "Yeah, you just won yourself a trophy," and miscellaneous "that is awesome" remarks.

We tucked ourselves behind the AWD Pirates subaru row and chilled out.

awesome!

the siren sounds exactly like I remember it in the movies

I just emailed Subaru Of America and pointed them to this thread, suggesting they do a feature on your project for the Subaru owners' magazine "Drive"

This is me, standing in front of the Ghostchasers' Ectocar!


Categories on the left are things like 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for best engine, best interior, best japanese import, best european import, etc etc. The awards on the right are 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Oddball categories.

Bam!

Allright, it's a chinsy trophy, but I still think it's funny as hell.


It is now my goal to win every "non-serious" category trophy from every car show I can get to and display them at future shows.

We thought about it, but in all the photoshops we did, the result was incredibly gaudy.

HA! As though the satellite dish isn't.

makes sense. still a great project. and as i said, maybe the new GB game developers will take notice. definately a better platform for an updated ecto than a Chrysler 300C
