Mr Harborne has spent over £50,000 on the project and juggled working part-time as a security guard to turn his dream into a reality.

After an extensive worldwide search, the 49-year-old from Sedgeley, West Midlands, managed to locate one of only six 1959 Cadillac models just a few miles from his home in Leicester.

The restoration enthusiast has spent years attempting to create an 'authentic Ghostbusters experience' for fans after hand-making the majority of the car's interior features from hand.

And the sci-fi fan, who has also previously restored an A-Team van, admitted it has been a long struggle giving the worse-for-wear orange car a new lease of life.

Original is here, y'all.
