Summer is officially here and in full swing and, with it, the usual spate of car shows, cruise ins and miles and miles of open road. A lot has happened in the last couple month, so let’s take a look at some of the most recent HVA award winners.
This August, the HVA is partnering with the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum in Hershey, PA, to offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to not only check out the 1986 comedy classic, but also spend a little time with one of the film’s stars. No, it’s not Ferris Bueller himself Matthew Broderick, but it is the car he drove around Chicago with his best friend Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck) and girlfriend Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara) in the iconic film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Summertime is a great time to get out on the open road and check out the many wonderful car museums dotting the country. We’ve touched base with a few to find out what they have planned for this summer and will continue to do so with museums across the country throughout the year. Check ‘em out and then get out there and enjoy!
The Historic Vehicle Association is currently running its fourth annual Cars at the Capital event. That means that throughout April, cars of historic significance will be displayed in a glass case located between Washington, D.C.’s National Gallery of Art and National Air and Space Museum.
If you’re planning a trip to Washington, D.C. this month, and want to include the automobile in your touristy activities somehow, might we suggest a stroll down the walkway between the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the National Gallery of Art facing the U.S. Capitol building?
The Ferris Bueller ‘Ferrari’ Was the First of Several Classic Cars on Display on the Mall This Month
What better way to honor America’s love affair with cars than to place the replica Ferrari from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on the Mall?
Created for the iconic 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, in which the titular character skips school, kidnaps his best friends Cameron Frye and Sloane Peterson, borrows Cameron’s dad’s beloved “Ferrari” and makes a day of it in the city of Chicago, the 1985 Modena Spyder California is not what it was made to appear.
This will be the fourth annual Cars at the Capital display, and this year it will stretch throughout the month of April, with five vehicles taking their turns being displayed in a glass garage that will be lit at night for round-the-clock viewing by Mall visitors.
Revealed at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, the recently-discovered 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback, serial #8Ro2S125559 from the movie Bullitt (1968) will be featured in the Hagerty booth at the 23rd Annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.
