Classic Restoration Enterprises determines what vehicles famous Halloween Monsters would drive.

It’s almost Halloween night and time to head out for some trick or treats, but in the year of 2006, what self-respecting monster is just going to walk to find a little trouble? But what would they drive? Check out the list offered by Classic Restoration Enterprises.

“It’s a lot of fun to look at cars that are not only collectible, but famous for their movie roles, and speculate on which monster would drive which vehicle,” says Melvin Benzaquen, President of Classic Restoration Enterprises. “Of course, we all have our favorites and some may be more desirable but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right?”


One of the most well known vampires with a thirst for blood, he would ride in the vehicle from the movie, The Car. The 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III has a real knack for killing people and a taste for blood in the movie and Dracula would have it no other way. Sure, would make it easier to feed, if the car got your pray for you.


Being a monster with not the best in coordination and skills, as well as, being rather large in stature and size, what better vehicle to hop into then the famous “Mystery Machine” from the Scooby Doo movies and series. Plus, the blue and green exterior paint scheme really brings out the green in Frankie’s face.

Bride of Frankenstein

Imagine, being created to be married to a monster, as a woman you might have a score to settle or two. So, why not hop in the 1967 blood red Chevy Chevelle from the high school horror movie, Carrie, and not only get even but, look great while you’re doing it. This is one bride for whom wearing red may just be her color.

Marshmellow Man

Being a rather large man, not many vehicles would be appropriate for him to hit the streets in. But ironically, he just might want the 1959 Cadillac Ambulance from the movie Ghostbusters. Surely, he fit comfortably, after all it’s a Cadillac, and if not, then he can just carry it around with him as a prize.

Headless Horseman

Sometimes it’s just not practical to chase your prey on horseback. But, how could you replace the horse of the headless horseman? Easy, just load him up in the 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT from the Mad Max movies and he’ll have plenty of horses under the hood to meet his needs. With a blower on top of the engine, a smooth get away should be no problem, keeping him ahead of the crowd.


Let’s face it, in 2006 brooms are so last season or last century. So, what could possible replace hoping on your broom, how about hopping in the Plymouth Fury from the Stephen King Movie, Christine? This 1958 Plymouth Fury can take care of any of the witches need and even has room for a caldron. You know what they say about hell hast no fury like a woman scorned, enough said.


Awakening from the dead is no easy task. It can really leave you groggy and disoriented. So, why not hop in the 1978 Plymouth Volare’ from the horror movie, Dawn of the Dead to get to your graveyard of choice.

The Great Pumpkin

Best known for his Charlie Brown appearances, The Great Pumpkin deserves an original motorized carriage. The 1923 Ford Model T, made famous in The Munsters, should take this famous fruit and vegetable anywhere it needs to go and it should never have to worry about turning into a “pumkin” at midnight


Being a friendly ghost is no easy task. Not only is Casper friendly but precious. Therefore, he deserves nothing less than a precious 1933 Packard V-12 to hit the streets in. This Packard made famous by The Addams Family is a gem that will keep him happy for years to come.


When wearing all those bandages, you have to be mindful of getting caught up or tangled on obstacles you might face while out and about. With that in mind, why walk when you could hop in the 1960 Chevy Impala, from the scary movie Jeepers Creepers, and have plenty of room to move about. After all, coming unwrapped is very undignified.


Heading out from the graveyard with your posse, has never been easier than loading up in the 1975 Ford LTD Wagon from hit horrific movie, Halloween. Wouldn’t Michael Myers be proud of how far his vehicle has come.
