It's not clear if this is an original movie car or an exact replica used for promotional duties (Universal Studios is in Florida). Now owned by a private collector, the car's covered 100,000 miles, which is staggering for a one-off special like this.

According to the seller, it draws a "VERY VERY LARGE crowd" wherever it goes, which goes some way to explaining the bidding that's already up to $45,100. [eBay]

In all honesty, that's a pretty cool investment. There will always be the crappy knockoffs that use the wrong car, and it isa a lot of money, but to actually have the real ECTO-1 is still pretty cool. On a side note, the mileage doesn't bother me. Cars are meant to be enjoyed and cared for. If you keep a car in a garage and just polish it, whats the point of spending the money on it, just buy a faberge egg or something.
