Homesick? Tired of that dry heat?

Why not buy the "Frye" home in Highland Park?

‘Ferris Bueller’ House on the Market
May 28, 2009, 12:54 pm
By Kevin Brass

The steel and glass house immortalized in the pop classic movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” is for sale.

The original house, located in the wooded Chicago suburb of Highland Park, was designed by A. James Speyer, a protĂ©gĂ© of Mies van der Rohe, in 1953. The glass pavilion, designed by the noted architect David Haid, was added a few years later, according to Meladee Hughes, a listing agent at Sudler Sotheby’s International Realty.

In the movie, the house was home to Bueller’s friend, Cameron. His father used the glass pavilion to display his red Ferrari, which (spoiler alert!) ultimately ended up in the ravine that the house overhangs.

The four-bedroom, 5,300-square-foot house is priced at $2.3 million, according to the listing.

“It’s not just about the car going in the ravine,” Ms. Hughes told the Chicago Sun-Times. “It’s just a wonderful property.”

It's very hard to watch that Ferrari going through the window and down....but it does seem like the perfect place to live.

I love watching that Italian trash get its just rewards for being a raging pile of over rated shit. I could buy the house just to recreate that scene every night with a real Ferrari instead. Wouldn't that just be the shit? Wouldn't that make me on the MF'r?

While we are at it, I don't think killing a deserving Ferrari is enough. Contemporary architecture is so damn long in the tooth, we should load the garage and home with all the Italian trash we can find and blow all of it to smithereens as demolition. Then we are not only ridding the world of an ugly home and sucker buy car, but we are immediately making this world a better place in so many ways.
Don't you tire of the irony of contemporary design? Contemporary means in 20 years their old interpretation of the future will be archaic and laughable by the the ever changing modern norms. Why be so arrogant to think you cannot build upon the past, why be so naive to think you are that original? It is an embarrassment to mankind.

I'm sure that Shane's fussy about the Red color and not the high quality of the car. ...but if you did want to drop a Ferrari every night ......then I would install the biggest and softest air bag and eliminate any damage. .



Memo to Shane:.....Time to try the "Decaf".....and who is the we.

I don't care what color that foul pile of Italian fuck is, it must die, and it will be a service to all of mankind not to have to put up with its inferior reliability and durability. A Honda Civic is a bastion of engineering compared to any Ferrari. Anyone who works on cars know this to be fact.

Never a truer word spoken but you have to admit they sell
