Peter Bailey, 37, said his lad Ison, 7, was "well impressed" when he picked him up from school in his Porsche Cayman, kitted out with flashing yellow lights and hazard tape. The Ghostbusters fan took his inspiration from the "Ecto-1" Cadillac Miller-Meteor Sentinel vehicle, which plays an important role in the four-film franchise. And he took took his son to a screening of the new film in the decked out vehicle on Thursday, with the pair wearing matching shoes, hoodies and "proton packs". Peter said: "I picked him up from school, and he was well impressed with the car. "I want to be the best dad in the world - most dads probably feel like this." Peter, a camera operative from Warrington, said that his son had first become interested in Ghostbusters after the female-led film came out in 2016. He said: "My son watched the girls version that came out in 2016 when he was probably three or four years old and loved it. "I was like, 'You need to see the original ones', and that was it - he was really into it, and he got me into it because we had the father-son bond going on." Once it was confirmed that a new film would be released on November 18 - Ghostbusters: Afterlife - Peter said it was just a question of "gearing up" for it. He said: "As soon as we heard that there was a new film coming out, that was it - it was just waiting for the new film to come out and gearing up for it. "We knew we were going to get dressed up to go and watch it in the cinema." Filmed on 18th November 2021
