It may not have been Ferris Bueller's own Ferrari, but he certainly, uh, made his mark on it. Now one of the three cars made for the movie will be on display for everyone to see. The iconic 1985 Modena Spyder California, which was modeled off a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California, will be at the National Mall from Friday to Sunday.

From April 3 through 9, you can see the 15,000,000th Ford Model T car, which Henry and Edsel Ford drove off the Highland Park assembly line. This car was among the last of its type to be created in almost 20 years of production.

The first Chrysler Minivan was launched about 35 years ago and quickly gained popularity across the country. This style of car had a huge impact on American families and were so popular that every major automaker created its own versions. The original 1984 Plymouth Voyager will be on display at the National Mall from April 10 to April 16.

The car was thought to be missing for decades, but "Bullitt" fans can finally relive the 1968 scene of Steve McQueen driving this car through the streets of San Francisco. The famous vehicle resurfaced earlier this year after being in a family's possession the whole time. The big block Mustang is unrestored and retains many of its modifications from filming for the movie. The Mustang will be the fourth car showcased, from April 17 to April 23.

If you are on the National Mall from April 24 to April 30, it might be hard to miss this 1918 Cadillac Type 57. The historic car is the only known U.S. military car that still exists from World War I after it was driven throughout France to set up rest areas for soldiers. The car is known to the U.S. military as U.S. 1257X and is still in "remarkable unrestored condition."
