Bob Regehr, a Kansas-area businessman and the inventor of the bounce house, was a life-long car collector and enthusiast, at one point amassing a Jay Leno-level collection of well over 200 vehicles, his daughter told local outlet KWCH. He died in late 2019, and his massive stash of classic cars just sold at auction for roughly $2.5 million. 

The assortment of more than 130 cars crossed the block through VanDerBrink Auctions on October 24, and included vehicles from the 1920s all the way to the late 1980s. Regehr kept his impressive collection mostly under wraps for nearly 30 years, but it was featured in Hot Rod magazine in 2009.
