The warthog would be a ground-up build, and would cost thousands and thousands of dollars (which I do not have, do you?)

If I do any more movie cars, they would have to be conversions from readily-available cars.

List of other ideas:

Time Machine from Back to the Future -- I'd do it out of a 1985 Nissan 300zx

Batmobile -- can be kit-made from a corvette

Batcycle -- put fins on any black superbike

Shaggin' Wagon -- from Dumb and Dumber

A-Team Van -- already one in Boulder

Mach 5 -- from Speed Racer, could make it out of a stingray

Gorillaz Geep -- wouldn't be street legal

Optimus Prime -- if someone supplied the truck, I'd do it

Ninja Turtle Party Wagon -- this is actually the project I would like to do next

Herbie -- blegh, and there is already one in Fort Collins

Mirthmobile from Waynes World -- with licorice dispenser, of course!

Mystery Machine -- already one of these in Northern Colorado

General Lee -- I would NEVER drive that car

Stinger APC from Aliens -- would be cool, but I can't afford an airline tractor!

KITT from Knightrider -- no point as the red light would be illegal

Bluesmobile -- INCREDIBLY easy project! Probably only $500 including the car

Green Hornet - cool, but who is gonna recognize it?

Christine -- not easily recognized

The Car -- not easily remembered

Transformer -- easy to do, just slap an autobot or decepticon logo on your hood, then paint lines all over the car to show the segments of when it transforms. Also, you'd have to make the horn play the transformation sound effect!

Gadgetmobile --you could make this out of a Saab, but without it transforming into a van, I don't think anyone would get it

Green Goblin Truck -- Maximum Overdive

Pursuit Special -- Mad Max, would be AWESOME!

TransAm from Smokey and the Bandit -- not my style

OCP police car from RoboCop -- would be illegal to have the lights

I can't think of the others... remind me if you know any more that would be recognized and appreciated.

Welcome to crosspost HELL. In becoming a member of nearly half a dozen forums I am forced to post one big chunk update in multiple threads. This means I'll be posting the identical stuff in both JP Jeep and Ectomobile threads. The upshot is that I'll do my best to ensure that each post is chock-full of awesomeness.

Lately my friend Logan (SA: Bruno_me) has been figuring out how to do incredibly cool things with his camera, not the least of which is taking HDR photos. Since drooling over some of the HDR pics on the NASIOC forums, I decided I wanted to try something similar with my replica cars. I figured we could make some cool images and use them the website, myspace, and mail them to all the different magazines and newspapers that want good pictures of the car. Eventually this would lead up to a very badass picture that I would use as my "It's What Makes a Subaru an Ectomobile" fake ad that I'll send to subaru dealerships.

Ahem.

Anyway, we took both the cars down to Boulder on Saturday night. I was hoping to get some cool pictures in front of city buildings and possibly in the Boulder Cemetary. We did get a few neat ones, but we didn't have much in the way of lighting, so they are sub-par. Stuff like this:


We got plenty of cool driving shots of both cars with the wheels and road all blurry, lookin' fast. Again, this was our first outing with this sort of picture-taking so if it looks a little crappy or amateurish, how about giving us some pointers?


Shauna driving the Ecto.


Me driving ze jeep.



A few miles out of Boulder the sky looked amazing and we had a great view of the mountains, I figured the IBM facility would have an open space where we could take some pictures. We went down an access road and found a nice flat clearing just south of the buildings. From there we set up and started shooting.

I think they turned out awesome. I can't wait to find locations that fit each car more appropriately (burned-out spooky warehouse or gothic skyscraper, high-tech firm or concrete bunker).

These are the forum-friendly versions of these pictures. I'll come back tomorrow and edit this post with links to the full-size images if you care to see.

Whaddaya think?

Wow, great job - those are really well done. And congratulations on your article in Drive magazine! I found this thread from the link in the article. I grew up in the same era of watching Ghostbusters and Jurassic Park, so your cars really excite the geek in me too!

I love the idea of dressing up the car for Halloween, and then going the extra step to have done it well enough to keep the costume on full-time as a themed-vehicle. The Turtle Van or Mach-V would get my vote for a cool next project. The Turtle Van would probably be easier/cheaper to source a base vehicle for though.

Well, keep up the good work, and keep the thread going! Can't wait to see the next iteration! You really got something going here!

Default New Ectomobile Video!

I was bored at work today and started tinkering with the footage Will and I shot with his XL2 in spring. I was setting some of the video to the usual dark orchestral music when I got distracted and started fitting clips to "Invincible" by OK GO.

Before I knew it I had finished a little 1 minute 30 second short that was apparently better than any of my original vids. I consider anything I work on for less than 5 hours to be sort of a 'throwaway' project, meaning I try to make it look a little fancy, but generally it's just a sort of 'editing calisthenics' that I do to pass the time.

It's a little dark and fuzzy, but at least youtube didn't mess up the timing of the music!!

I love attending big events because if you wait a few days, pictures of our antics always wind up plastered all over the intertubes.

This may be a small picture, but I think it is an awesome action shot of us in the parade.


Videos!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ntAGa-FEns
Some guy was wandering around making 15-second videos of everything. He asked us to talk to the camera for a bit. The video was interrupted by a man dressed as a clown for some kind of political protest. Oh well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRQVTlw0qek
This one is really worth watching all the way through just for ALEXI... mmmm! We make our appearance about 2:20 seconds in. I am sorting through the playlist for the sound system for the siren and at 2:55 I find it. LOUD!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brCHV6Tgpus
About a 1:20 you can hear the ecto on its way back up the street, blasting "Higher and Higher" as we come by.

LOTS of fun!

11PM - 1F



After nearly a month of not being a member of the Dish Network, if you catch my drift, my buddies and I put the Ecto back together for a trip down to Denver to take pictures at that GB mural and, I dunno, drive through Boulder and watch people flip out. Unfortunately the snow was so bad that we opted to just bum around town for the day. Anticipate lots of badass photos of the Ecto in all kinds of cool action soon!

Subscribed. You guys seriously kick much ass, and make me even prouder than before to rock the Stars of the Pleiades. Keep on rocking out, dudes! If you can ever make it out to the Baltimore Comic Con, I'll buy you beers.
