Burt Reynolds influence on car culture cannot be overstated. Be it Smokey and the Bandit or Cannonball Run, his films inspired a generation of car enthusiasts.

He passed away a few weeks back

due to cardiac arrest at age 82. This weekend, four vehicles from Reynolds personal collection — three


and a


— will go up for




in Las Vegas.

It seems Reynolds had plans to

sell the cars

before he passed. He even filmed a short teaser for the auction and planned to attend the event himself. The of the cars are Pontiac Trans Ams. Two are recreations of the cars

he drove in Bandit


the film Hooper

. Both of these are 1978 models.

The third Trans Am

is from 1984 and was used to promote Reynolds USFL team, the Tampa Bay Bandits. The fourth vehicle is

a 1978 Chevy R30 pickup truck

. It’s styled like the truck he drove in Cannonball Run.

None of the vehicles were actually used in the movies. They were registered in his name, making them far more legitimate than some other movie-inspired clones. It’s unclear how many of Bandit Trans Ams Reynolds has owned over the years. Another car connected to him

sold for $450,000 back in 2014

. His death is sure to drive the price of these

new cars

even higher.
