You remember the choice ride. The 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California that died a spectacular death after the best day ever.

It was the joyride vehicle of choice for Ferris Beuller, Cameron and that poor little lamb, Sloane, that Cameron's dad loved more than life itself. It provided a ride from the leafy green 'burbs for a great day in Chicago. It provided a high RPM afternoon for two goony parking attendants.

And it could be yours for just $67,000?

Well, the replica made for the movie can be had for that low price, anyway, according to the auction house Bonhams, in a public sale April 19th at an RAF museum in England, of all places.

Turns out the car used in the movie was a replica made just for filming because of the prohibitive price of using one of the exceedingly rare actual models. But then, there's only one of these, so which is more collectible?

So now you could fashion yourself into a real-life Abe Frohman, Sausage King of Chicago. Just $67,000 for the ride and another $1.8 million or so for the house and you'll be kicking nice red sports cars into the woods in no time. You know, when you plan your next hooky day from school.
