Parker gets pretty animated when you ask him about his 1992 Ford Taurus, which he converted into a custom ECTO-1 vehicle from the 'Ghostbusters' movies.
"I had watched it once, and then after I got the car I kind of got into it then," Parker says.
The car was bought as-is for $600. After a new brake caliper and a serpentine belt, the car was up and running.
That is when Parker decided to add some thrift store swag to turn his value vehicle into a sweet ride straight from the movies.
The 27-year-old amateur movie maker even create his own proton pack with a handheld vacuum cleaner and a colander.
"I've been mistaken for an ambulance, a police car, and a Google Earth car," Parker says.
When asked why he'd go to such great lengths to make a homemade replica, Parker says he did it to make people smile.
