The Evo from 2 Fast 2 Furious was on eBay this past summer, before Paul Walker was killed. Barrett-Jackson had it in 2011, when it sold for $24,200. Driving it on the street will mean time with the DMV, as it's a 2001 titled as a 2003 and was imported from Japan for the movie. Walker was both a real car guy and a pretty good guy in general, and his attachment to the series will definitely increase the selling price.

Ticking several boxes helps increase values. Key words like "Kobe Bryant," "West Coast Customs" and "" seem intended to do the trick. This Christmas present from Kobe's wife Vanessa was a no-sale on eBay this fall after it had sold for $48,400 . There might be a little more in it with a good run time, but with no reserve, I wouldn't count on it.

The Driving Miss Daisy Hudson has made the rounds since the movie came out almost a quarter-century ago. Most recently was the , where it sold for $24,750. I can't imagine that a Venn diagram mapping the intersection of Driving Miss Daisy fans and Hudson collectors includes many people. At no reserve, I'd expect the seller to struggle to recoup their investment.

In 2010, a bidder at Barrett's Las Vegas auction welched on , and CEO Craig Jackson stepped up to buy the car. Rest assured he won't be doing that again. The celebrity connection comes from the delivery to Simon Cowell, who's a TV chef or something, and the car shows 1300 miles. More interestingly, it's the first factory-certified pre-owned Bugatti, and it includes new tires. If you've priced out 365-710ZR540 Michelin Pilot Sports lately, you'll know that's not chump change. You have to think this car will go to around $1.2 million.

James Gandolfini was not known as an enthusiast, so I doubt that his 2013 death will affect this car's value much, but it will be easy to tell, as it sold in 2011. It has a desirable Hurst performance package and other options, but the engine is a replacement Rocket 350 from 1977, not the valuable 455. Someone could find a correct, date-coded engine and restore the car, but those are not easy engines to find. Unless the car is spectacular, I have a hard time imagining a bid over $30,000.
