Original Station Wagon from John Carpenter's 'Halloween' to Appear at Flashback Weekend Chicago

Halloween franchise fans will be given access to a special one-off opportunity later this year. That’s right, the original station Wagon driven by Michael Myers in John Carpenter‘s 1978 slasher classic Halloween has been discovered and will premiere at this year’s Flashback Weekend event on July 31stAugust 2nd, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago in Rosemont, IL. We have included all the important booking details for the upcoming photo op below.

The Halloween Wagon will be part of Flashback Weekend’s Horror Auto Museum, a collection of the iconic cinematic vehicles from legendary horror films.

Flashback Weekend shares information on the photo op with the iconic station wagon:

“Fans will have the opportunity to take photos with the iconic Station Wagon, and even sit INSIDE this piece of cinema history in the very seat in which Nick Castle (as Michael Myers) sat back in 1978!

This is the very station wagon which Nick Castle drove on location in 1978 during the filming of John Carpenter’s Halloween.

This 1978 Ford LTD station wagon was rented from a car rental agency for two weeks of filming. After filming was completed, the wagon was returned to the rental agency and auctioned off for private use. It then sat in a barn for decades before being sold to its current caretaker. The Wagon has received a thorough and complete exterior and interior frame on restoration. The Illinois State Logo and Prisoner Cage have been once again added to the Wagon.”

The 19th annual Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con will feature celebrity guests Tobin Bell and Shawnee Smith (the Saw series), Nick Castle and Sandy Johnson (John Carpenter’s Halloween), Alex Winter (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure), William Sadler (The Grim Reaper from Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey), Kane Hodder (Jason 7-10), Mark Rolston & Jenette Goldstein (Aliens), Quinn Lord (Trick r’ Treat), and many more guests to be announced.

Entry to the Horror Auto Museum will be included with a Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con admission. Tickets will be on sale soon. Visit the Flashback Weekend website for updates.
