Dustin Hoffman selling 1949 Buick from ‘Rainman’

How did I forget all about the amazing movie ‘Rainman’??? This is what not flipping through channels has done to me. I never see old movies anymore.

In the iconic film starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise, brothers Charlie Babbitt (Cruise) and his autistic brother Raymond (Hoffman) make a cross country trip from Cincinnati to Los Angeles to claim an inheritance left to them.

The car has been refered to as the third character in the film.  Dustin Hoffman aquired the car after the movie was filmed and has since stored it somewhere in LA.  But now he feels the car should be ‘driven, enjoyed, and cherished’.

The vehicle will feature at the Bonhams Scottsdale Auction, in Arizona, on January 27. It’s thought it could bring in as much as $250,000.
