Is This the Best Halloween Costume Ever? California Dad Transforms Son’s Wheelchair

Posted on

The Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1 is one of the most iconic cars in film history.

And now Jeremy Miller, 8, has one of his very own. He’s adding it to a collection that includes a Star Wars snow-speeder and a light-up Mickey Mouse-mobile.

Jeremy’s fleet is thanks to his dad, Ryan Scott Miller, who takes up the task of transforming his son’s wheelchair every year for Halloween, Baltimore’s WBAL 11 reports.

Jeremy’s Ecto-1 includes working headlights, sire lights and speakers — two different ones, one for the Ghostbusters theme song and one for the Ecto 1’s characteristic siren.

The young boy from Murrieta, California, has been in a wheelchair since he was 3 years old due to spina bifida, a condition that occurs when the bones of spine don’t form properly around part of the spinal cord.

“Every year we’ve tried to step up the scale of the costume builds we do for Jeremy,” Ryan writes on his YouTube channel. We’d say you’ve outdone yourself this year, Ryan — can’t wait for next year!
