    Apologies if that makes you feel old. To commemorate the occasion, the city of Chicago is hosting a three-day celebration this weekend which allows attendees to do all things Bueller—a Ferris-fest, if you will. For our money, the best cast member never said a word, had four wheels and met an untimely demise at the bottom of a ravine.

    Today seems like the perfect day to share with the class. He thought it was high-quality enough to work, so he called the duo. When Hughes called about seeing the Modena Spyder, Glassmoyer thought it was a friend playing a joke and hung up on the director.

    Hughes called back and convinced the duo to bring a Modena Spyder to the studio office. That fellow was John Hughes, and the people in the window were his staff. The chassis was a rectangular steel tube frame that came from storied Indy car maker Bob Webb. After it was rebuilt, it wound up in a Planet Hollywood in Minnesota until that restaurant closed, at which time it was sent to another Planet Hollywood in Cancun. The one that jumps the camera at the hands of the skeezy parking attendant was pummeled during the filming of that scene, because it took nine takes to get it right.

    By the time that shot was in the can, both front suspension bolts were shattered and the exhaust was smashed. And restore it he did. It took ten years and saw the V-8 getting swapped for a bored-out and fitted with an Eagle forged steel crankshaft, new forged pistons, Trick Flow wedge aluminum heads and roller rockers and a upgraded suspension with independent front arms, rack and pinion steering and nitrogen-charged adjustable coilovers.

Glassmoyer reportedly left one tiny dent in the grille, in homage to the film. Because they never secured the rights to put the stallion badges on the replicars, Ferrari got quite litigious, quite quickly.

    By Sean Evans May 18, The original script called for a Mercedes. Baime Posted in Vintage. Then Hughes spied a Modena Spyder California. Glassmoyer thought he was getting pranked. Don't forget to sign up. The Modena was built on a chassis made by an Indy car fabricator. The Modena featured a Ford Windsor small block. It was powered by a ci V-8, which was good for horsepower and lb-ft of torque. Three Modenas were ordered for the film. However, for the closeup shots, they brought in a real Ferrari.

    The crew loathed the replicas because they were unreliable. The replica that went out the window now resides in Cancun. The whereabouts of a second, perhaps non-running, replica are murky.

    The main stunt car took quite a beating. That very restored car went to auction in Ferrari was so pissed at Modena, they sued them out of business. An old thoroughbred transcends the car-auction market and crosses over to the art world.
