Elvis' Cadillac among items at Calif. auction

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Elvis Presley's Cadillac, Steve McQueen's old truck and prescription sunglasses worn by John Lennon are among hundreds of items once owned by celebrities that are scheduled to be auctioned in California next month.

The Mecum Auction Company said Wednesday it will be displaying and auctioning about 2,000 pieces of celebrity-related memorabilia in Santa Monica, Calif. on July 26-27.

Mecum says one of the auction's highlights will be Elvis' 1972 Cadillac Custom Estate Wagon. It is among several vehicles being auctioned, including a 1969 Chevrolet C/10 Baja race truck and two motorcycles owned by McQueen, a motorcycle owned by Dennis Hopper, and cars that belonged to Frank Sinatra and Bette Davis.

Other Elvis-related items included in the auction are his Army induction and discharge papers and rare photos.
