That may or may not be true, but who cares? You’d drive a 1/(less than) 100 Ferrari, if you had the chance, right? Wouldn’t you? Don’t lie to us, you know you would.
As of today, it’s been exactly 30 years since Bueller manipulated an entire cast of people in order to live out one wondrous day of tomfoolery. Part of that manipulation included taking advantage of his best friend Cameron and his dad’s breath-taking 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California. In the movie, it’s a car Cam’s father had spent three years restoring. It’s a car Cam’s father never actually drove. It’s a car that sounds orgasmic, and it’s a car that is meant to be pushed, not babied.
Not only does Ferris break Cameron’s trust, but without them even knowing, the valet takes it for a thrashing, as well. But the real damage comes at the foot of Cam himself when he rants about how it’s time to take a stand against his father who loves that car far more the he loves Cam. So he kicks. And he rants. And he kicks some more. And just when you think it’s done, the car rolls out the back of the garage, through the glass, and down the side of the wooded hill.
At the end of the day, it’s just a car. However, we can’t necessarily agree with Ferris that Cam’s father’s love of the California is “so far out of whack,” though. Mainly because that would mean our priorities are out of whack, and that’s just preposterous.
