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!
