Halloween is right around the corner, which means you can expect to find plenty of ghosts and ghouls lurking around your neighborhood. Throwing a white sheet over the head of a six-year-old might be a sufficient costume for a kid, but if you want to create a terror on four wheels then you’re up against some stiff competition.

 

5. The Classic Hearse

An oldie but a goodie, hearses have been creeping out motorists for decades. Most US hearses use either a Cadillac or a Lincoln as a base, which means that the hardware under the hood can actually be fairly high quality. You’d have a hard time getting your hands on one of these, though. Typically, car manufacturers only distribute cars with a specialized hearse chassis to coach builders.

 

4. A Volkswagen Beetle Jack-O’-Lantern

So, maybe these fall more into the “Aww, what a cute costume” category than the “Eek, that’s creepy” category, but let’s not forget that Halloween is mostly about kids. An orange VW with a jack-o-lantern decal is sure to get lots of smiles and giggles as you drive around town.

 

3. The Ghostbusters’ Infamous Echo-1

The 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor isn’t exactly the sexiest car ever made, unless you happen to be a raging fan of the famous cult comedy classic Ghostbusters (and who isn’t, right?) The Echo-1 design is simple enough: with a little elbow grease, you could build one of these in your own garage! Start with a white car, give it some red highlights, decorate the top with fake police lights and various other techy-looking doohickeys and voila: a pimped-out, nerdtastic Halloween ride that will make your whole neighborhood jealous.

 

2. Grave Digger

Does it get much more monstrous than a monster truck? Grave Digger is arguably the world’s most famous monster truck and for good reason. With its iconic green flames and black paint scheme, Grave Digger is totally scary and instantly recognizable, even for people who don’t obsess over these things.

I wouldn’t recommend driving a monster truck around town on Halloween though. You’ll do an excellent job of scaring the pants off of children and their parents, but the local brass will have some strong words (and a matching pair of silver bracelets) for you.

 

1. An Alien-Inspired PT Cruiser

The original Alien movie is celebrated as one of the scariest horror movies ever made. In my opinion, the real star of the movie was HR Giger’s surreal, oh-so-creepy alien. So why not honor one of Hollywood’s most famous monsters by sticking it on the front of your car? Nothing quite says, “Get out of my way, I’m late for work” like a chest-burster.

Whatever you choose to drive this upcoming Halloween, ETE REMAN can make sure that you’ve got the right transmission for the job.  Because nothing is scarier than a wrecked engine. Seriously.

 I highly recommend you replace your customer’s transmission with a re-manufactured transmission. A remanufactured unit will include major alterations and upgrades designed to make them both stronger and more durable. A re-manufactured transmission will also include a much better warranty: three years compared to an average 90 days for a rebuilt transmission. In the rare event that a re-manufactured transmission fails within the warranty period, they will cover your R&R cost to replace your customer’s transmission. And remember, the companies that re-manufacture transmissions are very easy to contact. They are just a quick phone call or email away.
