Um belíssimo modelo do Ecto 1, do filme Os Caça-Fantasmas, de 1984. Este é um trabalho do designer brasileiro Cláudio Dias, que compartilha seus modelos generosamente em seu site, Paper Inside.

The Real Thing
The vehicle used for the Ecto-1 was a 1959 Cadillac professional chassis, built by the Miller-Meteor company. The ambulance/hearse combination was the end loader variety. Dr. Ray Stantz found the vehicle shortly after he mortgaged his mother's house to buy the Firehouse. Because of his mechanical skills, he was able to repair the vehicle, which he acquired for $4,800 (a rather large sum at the time for a used vehicle in such disrepair - equal to about $9,800 in 2008 dollars).
After repair, the vehicle had quite a unique character. It became a well-recognized symbol for the Ghostbusters franchise, both in the film itself, and in real life. The vehicle had enough room in it to store Proton Packs for all of the crew, along with Ecto Goggles', P.K.E. Meters, and a slew of Traps. -
