Fans of 80s movies will immediately recognise the words on the front of the Ferris Bueller's Day Off T-shirt from Ohh Deer.
I loved Graphic Nothing’s Mona List Revamped and album cover remixed prints, even if it took a few minutes of staring and squinting to see what they were. More easily recognisable, but just as good is the “A Scene From” series of prints from the same designer.
Remember this? Of course you do, this is Cameron's house (aka the 'Ferrari House') from John Hughes' 80s teen classic, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. We featured it when the house went up for sale back in 2009 and said back then, if we had the money, we would be all over it. Well, according to Gizmodo, the economic slowdown seems to have hit the luxury property market, so the money required to buy this midcentury gem in Highland Park, Illinois, USA is much less than it was back then.
As you undoubtedly recall, this glass and steel construction was owned by the parents of Cameron Frye and housed the infamous Ferrari, which Cameron and Ferris used to get around town during that 'day off'. That's not included in the sale (it was sold last year) – but you'll find the garage, which is capable of holding up to three cars, classic or not.
No, it didn't actually slip off a sharp cliff near Cameron's modernist house – the Ferrari that featured in Ferris Bueller's Day Off survived and is now up for auction at Bonhams.
It's a Ferrari 250GT Spyder California, but not a real one – only 100 of the original were made between 1958 and 1963, making it super-rare, so John Hughes and Paramount actually had a replica made for filiming. Which is the one being sold off now. Just think, you too could be careering around the city in that same car – but you'll not have to worry about the mileage or your parents.
