Five famous and historic cars are going on display at the National Mall, including the Ferrari from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (Friday-Sunday) and the recently recovered Ford Mustang driven by Steve McQueen in the movie "Bullitt" (April 17-23). Each car is set to be showcased in a glass structure between the National Gallery of Art and the National Air and Space Museum for a few days each. (See the complete schedule here.)
"These cars are some of the most important automotive and cultural examples that reflect the early days of our American automotive history as well the role automobiles have played in film history," Mark Gessler, Historic Vehicle Association president, said in a statement. "They all tell a uniquely American story and reflect the broad impact the automobile has had on our culture."
This is the fourth annual Cars at the Capital event, hosted by the Historic Vehicle Association, and anyone can come out to see the cars for free at any time during the day or night.
