Burt Reynolds was there to personally sign away this 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am from Smokey and The Bandit. The timeless Trans Am was presented by 79-year-old Reynolds himself and the McLaughlin Museum during the Barrett-Jackson auto auction in Scottsdale this past Saturday, selling for an astounding $550,000.
The famous Pontiac Trans Am came with a certificate from Universal Studios, which had used the car to travel while promoting the movie. To go along with the certificate includes a Plaque from General Motors, an original movie script, location maps for the film, behind the scenes photos, original press release kit, Pontiac Historic Services documents, while the car’s title states ‘Universal Promo Car.’
The best part of all this for the buyer was probably the delivery, as Burt Reynolds drove the car from the block to the tune of “East Bound and Down.”
