How To Murder A Ferrari


Have you ever seen the 80’s movie responsible for Matthew Broderick’s big break called Ferris Bueller’s Day Off?  I’m sure it was popular everywhere, but growing up in the ‘burbs of Chicago, we watched this movie over and over recognizing new locales each time since it was filmed in our backyards.  If you’ve seen the movie, then you are most likely familiar with the scene where Ferris’ friend, Cameron Fry, has a major meltdown and pushes his dad’s Ferrari out of the glass wall of his garage.  This scene was filmed at an actual house in the upscale Chicago suburb of Highland Park, and the house is now for sale.  For a cool $2,300,000, you can buy the house and reenact the famous “Ferrari Murder” scene from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  Even if you don’t have that kind of money or don’t want to live in Highland Park (your neighbors would be Michael Jordan, Gary Sinise, and Harold Ramis), it’s still kind of cool to check out the real estate listing which has details and other pictures of the house besides this:

  1. Funny… you wouldn’t have had that thought if this post had auto-posted a few days ago like I had scheduled it. I wonder if the problem was me or the feature?

  2. nope I would have laughed at the radio and said “HA! I knew that before.” But all I did was say… I wonder how long it will take taylhis to bring it up 😉

  3. I read about this somewhere else. I guess some would call me “stupid” or “an idiot” for not knowing this, but I had no idea this building was so local.
