Burt Reynolds’ movie-car collection scores $330,000 at Barrett-Jackson auction


Although the original Smokey and the Bandit movie cars were apparently destroyed because Universal wouldn’t release any cars with potential frame damage from stunts, people are still willing to shell out big bucks even for a re-creation or homage car. That is, one with ties to the late Burt Reynolds himself. The three cars from Reynolds’ personal collection (in affiliation with friend Gene Kennedy of Bandit Movie Cars Florida) all crossed the block at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction and commanded $330,000 in total.
