Summer Movie Review
“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”
K&F Show Summary with Special Guest, Ryan Brutt:
Ferris Bueller’s Day off is the tale of one high school hero who truly had it all; looks, brains, money, friends, a smokin’ hot girlfriend, popularity, style, and panache. However, despite all of that he still lacked the two things that he needed most….a day off, and a car! This is the tale of Ferris Bueller, the 4th wall breaking, Ferrari stealing, John Hughes immortal movie hit of 1986. Like nearly every other John Hughes tale the setting of the story was the Chicago suburbs!
The Ferrari in the film is supposed to be a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California. The insert shots of emblems and wheels really are of the genuine article, but absolutely everything else was a faker-oo Modena Spyder replica (three of them, actually). Ferrari was none too happy with this movie and sued Modena out of business. Most reports show that the Ford powered replicas were ham-fisted together, ran poorly, and broke down often. In fact our man Ryan Brutt (The Auto Archaeologist) joined in to share the tales of the man that keep the fake Ferrari’s running during the movie filming; his dad!
