If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, it’s probably Alex Mickschl.
Mickschl is a Ghostbuster fully equipped with a proton pack, ecto goggles and the Ectomobile he drives around town.
“My best friend and I, when we were kids, about 11 or 12, we saw the movie Ghostbusters and we fell in love with it,” Mickschl said.
Mickschl and his best friend, Shane Scott Carter, remained fans for over 20 years.
“As kids we had to build our own toys because they didn’t have anything cool back then. So we built stuff out of whatever junk we found laying around and had a good time with it,” said Mickschl. “Unfortunately he died of cancer a couple of years ago. So I decided to do this in the same tradition that we built stuff as kids.”
Mickschl built the Ectomobile piece by piece.
“As kind of as a memorial for him and as therapy for me,” Mickschl said.
