Burt Reynolds, America's brilliant actor and, in my humble opinion, a perfect human being, is dumping his stuff.
In 1977, the the star of Smokey and the Bandit appeared in the mustached, cowboy-hatted dreams of millions. But unfortunately, reports say that mega-movie star Reynolds is in deep debt. Does he scream when he opens the power bill? Is he eating Top Ramen? I get it Burt. I get it.
Calling all financially secure fans: the auction will take place on December 11th and 12th at The Palms in Las Vegas. One expert calls it "a gold mine of Hollywood memorabilia". Duh!
Even Burt's Golden Globe is up for grabs. Go ahead - sharpie on a mustache and fantasize that YOU won Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Boogie Nights. How about rolling through town in a sweet red and white "BR" Ranch monogrammed surrey carriage? If that's not enticing enough, it was gifted to him by his costar in The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas - none other than the magical Dolly Parton.
Let's all head to Vegas!
Of course, Twitter was aflutter. It looks like everyone wants to grab a piece of kick-ass history:

So Burt Reynolds is selling the 78 trans am from Smokey & the Bandit in January. I will accept this as a late Christmas present.— ace ? (@tellemitsace) December 2, 2014
