When he new Ghostbusters film was announced, a dedicated dad knew exactly what he needed to do.

Peter Bailey's son Ison has been obsessed with the spooky franchise ever since catching the female-led 2016 reboot.

And that fandom inspired Peter to do something most other dads would deem 'crazy'.

He transformed his modified his Porsche Cayman to resemble the iconic 1980s film.

The 37-year-old said in order to be “the best dad in the world”, he decided to go the whole hog and transform his sports car into a Ghostbusters-themed racer, reports The Mirror.

The dad took inspiration from the “Ecto-1” Cadillac Miller-Meteor Sentinel vehicle from the movie.

He kitted out his own Porsche Cayman with flashing yellow lights and hazard tape.

And he said his son Ison was "well impressed" when he picked him up from school in the modified car.

Peter revealed his son’s obsession with Ghostbusters started when he saw the female-led film in 2016.

The camera operative from Warrington 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.

“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."

And when it was announced the new film, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, would be hitting cinemas on November 18th, Peter knew he needed to “gear up” for it.

So, after kitting out his car, he took his son to a screening of the movie with the pair wearing matching shoes, hoodies and “proton packs”.

Peter 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.

And the dad admitted it was “well worth” spending £50 on stickers for the car, especially after his long work hours left him feeling “guilty” about not spending more time with his family.

He said: “Because I work a hell of a lot and I always feel like I’m missing out on the kids – I suppose it’s work hard and play hard.

"You know, look at the memories we have created - it’s well worth it.

"When I get a chance to do something like this with the kids, I’ll definitely do it.”
