Replicated Ferrari 250 GTO Gives Ferris Bueller A Second Day Off

Back in June, Michelle and Haley had sent us an email featuring their hand built Ferrari 250 GTO Replica based on a Nissan 280Z and equipped with a BMW V12 engine (see pics here & video here). Now, two months later, we received another email from Michelle informing us that their replicated Ferrari was written up in Motive Magazine’s website in a manner that would have made Ferris Bueller take another “day off” all over again.

The article revisited all the real life locations of the 1986 flick “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” from the steps of Glenbrook North High School in Northbrook, Illinois to the actual garage Ferris parked his 250 GT California Spyder LWB, the article drew picturesque scenes from what became and will forever remain a classic film with a classic car. -Continued: Click “Read More…” below

Even though there were some “slight” differences in Michelle and Haley’s car and the car in the video (the one in the movie was a roadster), they still shared the same reminiscent attributes and the fact that both vehicles were replicated versions. In the movie, Coachbuilder Modena Design used a small-block Ford V8 in a custom tube chassis to create the vehicle that was “so choice”. Visit to read the story and we thank Michelle and Haley again for sharing their interesting adventure with us.
