The Complete Ghostbusting History of Ecto-1 [Infographic]

New York City is about to be held in the slimy grip of the paranormal once more, but there are some big differences between the original “Ghostbusters” movie and the upcoming reboot, released on July 15.

There are new characters to consider, of course, but fans of the supernatural comedy franchise take the iconic Ecto-1 vehicle very seriously, too. After all, they even created a petition to take ownership of the first model, hoping to restore it to its prime.

The 1959 Cadillac ambulance into which piled Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis during the earlier movies is replaced by a 1980s Cadillac hearse this time around.

So how will they compare?

To get you up to speed and help your inevitable evaluations, once comfortably in front of the big screen, here’s the complete history of Ecto-1 to date.
