If anyone is looking for Burt's AMEX Card or the Smokey and the Bandit car, check this out at the Palms. Looks like Burt wasn't too wise with his money over the years.

That playgirl centerfold cost him alot of missed income, he probably had the same advisers everyone else did who said 'you can always refinance'...though he claims the auction is not rooted in financial distress.

The official story I read denies money problems and stated a lack of desire to hold onto so much stuff.

I also read the claims that he is not broke, however he is fighting foreclosure on his house in Jupiter Florida. Maybe the two have nothing to do with one another, but I will take the odds they are.

"Broke" can mean different things. Burt has not done anything big in years. While I am sure he has saved and invested, he cannot live totally large.

BTW: The car is *not* a movie car, it is Burt's car. The movie cars were mostly destroyed by the end of filming.

I believe Turd Ferguson took that already.

Lots of cool stuff, and much with very affordable auction estimates in the $200 - $300 range. Of course some stuff is listed for $100k+, but I would bid on a pair of boots.

It seems a little odd to sell things gifted by others who are still around. I wonder how Sally Field feels about him selling the engraved gold pocket watch she gave to him?

Many of the items have already passed the pre sale estimates well before the live auction during online bidding.

I think this will blow away all estimates.
