(07-10-2019) – Three movies from the 80s that boasted quite the lineup of cars! The 35th anniversary of “Ghostbusters” was celebrated at the Sony Studios lot in Culver City recently with a “Ghostbusters Fan Fest”!
Fans of the movie had a chance to rub elbows with some of the stars including Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and even singer Ray Parker Jr who immortalized the movie’s theme song in a video! Bill Murray didn’t make it, and sadly Harold Ramis passed away in 2014. Aykroyd was super busy, so much so that Randy did what’s known in the biz as a “walk and talk”…..so 123 seconds with Dan are in this podcast! Dan talked about how they decided on the 1959 Cadillac Ambulance for Ecto 1, and those Dodge St. Regis’ for. Blue Brothers, and HOW MANY they bought for that crazy crash scene in Chicago?
Fans were out in force getting a chanced to get autographs and check out all the Ghostbuster vehicles from the new all female ghostbusters Ecto….
…to Ghostbuster vehicles we’re really not sure where they came from…..
Randy also caught up with his pal Jennifer Runyon (or as she calls herself “Christmas Cindy” from when she subbed for Susan Olsen during one of the Brady Bunch TV movies) and Steven Tash. Both were credited as being students in the movie, so not very large parts, but Tash was also in the movie “Christine” as the bully who drove that cool 67 Camaro which was mangled (and him under it dying) when the ‘58 Plymouth reeked some revenge in a warehouse.
Sadly Jennifer’s interview had some technical issues, mostly a background band playing “Ghostbusters” tracks louder than her answers. Interesting notes that Jennifer and her husband are into horses, one ran at the Preakness, her mom used to own a Mustang and she loved her Jeep Wrangler but had to give it up after some creep recognized her and tried to chase her through Laurel Canyon while she was in it. That’s the downside of show biz!
