Ever want to take a ride in the Ghostbusters company car, Ecto-1? Now you can, with a new promotion from Lyft and Sony -- and you don't have to carpool with Slimer.

This promotion for the new "Ghostbusters" reboot offers customers the option to ride in Ghost Mode, an option in the Lyft app that will offer rides in Ecto-1 replica vehicles.

On Friday, July 1, and Saturday, July 2, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time, passengers can choose to ride in Ghost Mode using the Lyft app and request a free ride in an Ecto-1 car in their area.

According to Lyft, the Ghost Mode option will feature both original Ecto-1 vehicles from the film, as well as movie replicas.

No word on whether the original Ecto-1 model that's available will be a vintage 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance/hearse chassis with retro fins as seen in the '80s "Ghostbusters" film or the "Ghostbusters" reboot version of the Ecto-1 -- a 1984 Cadillac Superior hearse.

Not only will you impress your friends by being dropped off in an Ecto-1, passengers will also have the chance to take home Ghostbusters-themed swag, such as Hi-C Ecto Coolers and Hostess Key Lime Slime Twinkies.

Plus two lucky winners will take home the grand prize of two tickets each to the "Ghostbusters" film premiere in Los Angeles on July 9.

"Ghostbusters" hits theaters July 11 in the UK, July 14 in Australia, July 15 in the US and August 11 in Japan.
