Brilliant!

Hopefully your Subie didn't need all the work of the OG Ecto-1... "Needs some suspension work and shocks. Brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear-end. Also new rings, mufflers, a little wiring..."

Actually, that sounds like a lot of owners' mod paths.

One of my all-time favorite movies. Every line is quotable!

Well, they're jockeying about the same horsepower (a little more), but a lot more weight.

The H-6 is nice, for sure. But I tell you what... the H-6 in the new cars, is a heck of a lot better than the one in our car. Like, it's not even funny.


Great idea, to email SoA. I'll contact SubieSport.......... right now.

It met a similar fate to your first wagon, IIRC.

So... Saturday April 22nd was StarFest at the Denver Tech Center Marriott. I dragged Austin out of bed insanely early, Shauna showed up on time, and we all trekked (ha, get it?) down to the convention.

Some pictures and a story.... All pics with ---- above them were taken by other people and found on the interwebs.


There's Shauna, my girlfriend....That's right, I managed to get a girl who to wear that suit (which belongs to my other roommate, Vincent) simply out of guilt that she has an emotional obligation to me.

Well, no. Actually, she makes her own costumes with needle and thread and enjoys scaring the squares. Any wonder we ended up together? She's awesome.


Allright, allow me to geek out when I recognize a guy dressed as the main character from my favorite book EVER. It was the sticker that brought us together, though. At least for this picture. 42, baby.


Holy crap! Tiny storm trooper! This kid was probably about 4 years old and incredibly tiny. I asked the mother if we could put her baby in mortal danger by perching him precariously on top of the hood of my car.


"Allright, back up. Little further. Now put the helmet on. We know you can't see, but pretend. Now dance and try not to, you know, fall and die." That's really what I said.


Coolness, the folks running the registration let us park the car at the main entrance to the convention. Hilarious. I sort of take pleasure (or at least great amusement) at the suffering of others, so I got to watch people park a mile or so away and walk to the convention in costume while I got to park in the space between the parking lot and the actual building. Suckers.

------

Unfortunately, the only pictures I managed to get of the car were when we weren't being stormed by people with cameras. I tried to get photos of all the people clamoring around it, but I kept getting asked "can you go stand by the car for a picture?" Ugh.

An EXPENSIVE camera took this shot. "Too bad there's a great big fat guy in the way!" -Will

Too cool. TIE fighter pilot... in my car. If only he could see well enough to drive it.


He could use a good kiss!


Austin doesn't do too well without sleep. Poor guy.


.... Oh yeah.


Felt so sorry for this guy. His entire costume (save for the armor) was made from fleece. Gotta suck in the summer. However, along with driving an ectomobile, one of my dreams is to get a stormtrooper costume and go snowboarding or snowmobiling in it.


Our only real competition at the con. But it didn't have flashing lights or an incredible sound system, did it? DID IT? We were offered the chance to park the car inside next year, but even if I still have the car put together by this time next year, I think I enjoyed running the lights and sound too much to leave it as an interior static display.


****! Klingons! At.. Wendys.

----

Cool picture taken by someone else while we were around the con.


He's must have a great personality, I mean... he's one ugly mother****er.


We're geeks, we seriously get off on this sort of thing.

Allright, back to what we care about, THE CAR! Check it out. The fire lane can suck it.


I really like this one. Good friends.

*fan service*

----

Giving an interview on the backstory of the car to a 'news' crew. I always make the dumbest faces.

----

Picture found on the CBS NEWS 4 website.

----


---

This is a pretty cool pic, too.

---

Bidding the convention farewell.

This was technically my first science fiction convention. Unless you're really hardcore into the fandom, there really wasn't that much to do. You could walk around and see TONS of awesome costumes, quite a few completely socially inept people, and if you had a cool costume yourself, you'd get lots of people taking your picture and... you know... blessing their children with your godly powers.

Next up for the Ectomobile, the Denver Hearse Association event May 11-13. Fun!

Nah. The striping is definitely a thin line between cool and gaudy. Too much and you get something like this


Blegh.

As far as the LEDs go, we've thought about 'em.

1) I'd rather spend that $300 on making the lightbars purple than putting LEDs on the rack

2) Custom LED bars cost 1000s of dollars, and weather-proofing a pair of cheap store-type scroll screens would be incredibly difficult

and 3) I try not to put anything up there that people would really want to steal.

If someone wants to buy us a pair of LEDs... I'll put 'em up there
