at USS Susquehannock Sci-Fi Day
2nd & Charles Bookstore
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

I’ve been engaging in a purge of all of the dvds that have somehow accumulated in the house. I rarely ever bought a new copy; but we used to buy them on the sale rack when Blockbuster and Video Update were still around, and at the occasional yard sale or flea market. I’ll stick one in my computer every now and then; but I no longer even own a dvd player so it’s time for them to go! I thought that I had already taken all of them to the 2nd & Charles in Harrisburg to sell or trade but I found a rather large stash in a box yesterday.

As it turned out, yesterday was Sci-Fi Day at the store. The USS Susquehannock group (a Central Pennsylvania Starfleet Chapter … yep, that’s a real thing) was holding their annual event. One of the attractions was a Ghostbusters Cadillac! The Central PA Ghostbusters, a group of local fans,  uses it to raise money for the NHS School in Carlisle and to promote Autism Awareness.

Here it is in all it’s glory … with bonus Jedi Knight fan.

    Great post! Now I think the world needs some official Star Wars/Ghostbusters/Star Trek mashups. That car is definitely a beaut. They put a lot of love and work into it. And thumbs up to the important cause they’re raising money for. 🙂

      It’s definitely a labor of love and the peeps in the group are really dedicated.

      I’m scared to look; but I bet somewhere out there is some StarBusters fanfiction 🙂

    “Captain James T. Kirk of the starship Enterprise,” Kirk took Venkman’s hand while flashing his own smooth grin. “This is Mr. Spock, Mr. Giotto and Dr. McCoy.”

    “Starship…” Spengler looked around, eyes growing large. “This is phenomenal. Brushing the beams together resulted in interdimensional travel.” He looked excitedly at Stantz. “Do you have any idea what this could mean for science?” ….

    McCoy cocked an eyebrow. “What exactly is it you boys said you do?”
