Otobots auto repair proudly serves the thriving community of Northbrook, IL with industry certified technicians. When incorporated in 1901, the village was known as Shermerville in honor of Frederick Schermer, who donated the land for its first train station. The village changed its name to Northbrook in 1923 as an effort to improve its public image. The name was chosen because the West Fork of the North Branch of the Chicago River runs through the Village.
Many parts of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off were filmed at Glenbrook North High School in the fall of 1985 with students serving as extras. The water tower upon which is written “Save Ferris” is near the village’s public library. The party scene from the film Uncle Buck was filmed at a house in the Highlands neighborhood, on Crabtree Lane. The grocery store scene in She’s Having a Baby was filmed at Sunset Foods, and scenes in Ordinary People and Weird Science were shot at the Northbrook Court shopping mall. A small scene from the film Risky Business was shot at a highway ramp off the Edens Expressway.
Notable people from Northbrook include Steve Bartman (incident from MLB), John Hughes (film director), Kaskade (DJ), and Jim McMahon (NFL).
