Recent sightings of Ghostbusters funeral coach cars in uptown Charlotte and a smaller Ghostbusters car in the Elizabeth neighborhood have some people wondering if the Queen City is haunted.
Answer: Probably not, but with Halloween approaching, why ruin the party?
Never miss a local story.
“One of them was at Cars and Coffee yesterday morning as well,” one person posted beneath a video of the cars. “Had all the noise makers and siren toys as well, pretty neat stuff!”
Cars and Coffee Charlotte is a monthly gathering of auto enthusiasts on the first Saturday of each month at the old coliseum off Yorkmount Road.
“The owner was a cool Australian guy,” a person posted in reply. “He said he personally fabricated each of the devices he had in and on the car. Pretty cool!”
“Saw them on N Tryon yesterday while leaving work,” posted another person.
Of the Ecto-1 Ghostbusters car spotted in Elizabeth, a man posted on reddit that he saw the car on his morning run. “Best part is now I know I can go local for my ghostbusting needs. Don’t always have to call corporate HQ.”
“Saw it yesterday during my post-panthers dog walk,” posted another. “Figured they were responding to a call at those hideous new 3-story town homes that were just built.”
Barrie Clark told the Observer he owns and drives Ecto-1. He belongs to Ghostbusters of North Carolina, which he described as a civic-minded group of law enforcement officials, firefighters and former military members that does lots of charity work, including for Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte.
