Last Minute Shopping Ideas: Buy Burt Reynolds’ Stuff…

02f22reynolds1-494677

There is a lot of speculation going around that Burt Reynolds is hurting for cash.  So much so that he is selling 600 items with Julien’s Auction House.  While this looks bad for ole’ Bandit, this is a perfect opportunity for everyone else to cross off some of those Christmas list items that are left for the loved ones in your life.  Here are some of the items that you could pick up over the next couple of days.

“SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT” 1977 PONTIAC TRANS AM COUPE

Car

Current Bid: $130,000

This is Mr. Reynolds’ 1977 Trans Am Coupe (T-Top) which was used as a promotional vehicle for the movie and gifted to Burt for his collection.  She features a 400 cid Pontiac V-8 engine, a 4-barrel carburetor and an automatic transmission.  With a gold plaque on the driver door stating “1977 Pontiac Trans Am Owned By Burt Reynolds” and a customized “Bandit” logo, this is “no ordinary automobile”; it’s a piece of “Hollywood History”.  This is an amazing opportunity to own what just might be the coolest car EVER!

I was hoping they through a few more quotations around things like “piece” and “own” just to add a little more to this entry.

Current Bid: $600

A print of a color photograph featuring golfing legend Jack Nicklaus. Nicklaus has inscribed the photograph “Burt/ I enjoy your work/ ‘almost’ as much as/ a 65/ All the best/ Jack Nicklaus” in black marker. Framed

I appreciate The Golden Bear throwing some shade at Burt… “I enjoy your work, ‘almost’ as much as getting stuck in a sand trap and getting up and down in seven.”

BURT REYNOLDS ROLODEX

Rolodex

Current Bid: $2,000

Burt Reynolds’ Rolodex from his home office. Entries are typed or handwritten onto note cards and include the contact information for many of Reynolds’ celebrity friends, restaurants, and business contacts. The Rolodex is constructed of beige metal and black plastic with a roll top, model number 2254.

There looks like there are a ton of names in that Rolodex.  So, give this gift to the person who would love to have the 1980s telephone number of Loni Anderson, Farrah Fawcett and Dom DeLuise
