the story of the Ferris Bueller Ferrari's garage (the glass walls, built over a ravine)

is all in a letter written into the editor of the Garage Style magazine, Fall 2010 issue.

How the garage was built before that became against regs and no isn't something that a builder can do in that city anymore. Building codes were changed, and now we can't have nice things any more.

But in 1985 John Hughes was driving though, and saw it from a bridge, made the acquaintance of the owners, and convinced them to let him crash a car through the back glass wall.

7 cameras were filming the car going out into the canyon, falling 40 feet, but only one caught the entire action, and the film from the other 6 wasn't useful for much at all.
