Another view of the Bondsmobile

This front view of the Bondsmobile in Tuscaloosa shows the reversed "Ambulance"-style type that reads "Jail Busters" in a rear-view mirror.

That's clearly a vintage Cadillac logo above the grille, with the pearl-topped crown that Cadillac recently scrapped, alas. But judging from this obsessive Ghostbusters fan's website, the Bondsmobile is not the same make as the 1959 Miller Meteor driven in the movie by Venkman, Stantz, Spengler and Zeddmore. The Ectomobile had limo-style windows all the way down the side, whereas the Bondsmobile has a landau-style design, with no side windows in the back -- more typical of a hearse than an ambulance. The Ectomobile also had more pronounced, upswept tail fins.
