Mecum Auctions Rolls Out The Red Carpet For 'Celebrity Cars' July 26-27 At The Barker Hangar In Santa Monica, Ca  Los Angeles, CA - June 10, 2013 - Mecum Auctions will be rolling out the red carpet for a fleet of celebrity cars and motorcycles at its inaugural Mecum Celebrity Items Auction: Celebrating the Legendary History of Hollywood at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA July 26-27, 2013. View an updated list of celebrity, collector cars now online at: http://bit.ly/ZIeAzg.

Steve McQueen's 1969 Chevrolet C/10 Baja Truck (Lot F239) will go under the hammer for the first time ever. It was designed by off-road motoring visionary Vic Hickey and sold to McQueen in 1970. With just over 14,000 original miles, the truck still sports the original red paint, parts and Hickey racing customizations. Several other McQueen related items are scheduled to cross the block including a 1931 Harley Davidson VL 74 motorcycle (Lot S275) formerly owned by the classic American Legend.

A lucky buyer can experience how 'The King' and the Memphis Mafia cruised with Elvis Presley's former 1972 Cadillac Custom Estate Wagon (Lot S210). This custom wagon was built from a Sedan Deville using sections from General Motors' full-size station wagon lineup. The automobile features a forward-facing third row seat and a 'clamshell' two-piece tailgate with glass that retracts into the roof, and a door that retracts into the lower body.

Crossing the block for the Rat Pack aficionado is a 1989 Jaguar XJS (Lot S169) that Frank Sinatra used as his main mode of transportation in Palm Springs. Documented by its entire California DMV history, this Hunter Green 2-door coupe with room for four sports the powerful V-12 engine under the hood. The inside is typical of the crooner's inimitable style: tilt steering, power door locks and windows, leather seats, and wood interior accents.

Other collector cars to be featured include a George Barris Custom built 1957 Chevy Coupe for Ringo Starr (Lot S235), Bette Davis' 1980 Ford Mustang (Lot S129), a 1965 Chrysler Imperial used in the 2011 film The Green Hornet (Lot S278),the 1973 Chevrolet El Camino used in the popular TV series My Name is Earl (Lot S369), a 2007 GMC Yukon featured in CSI: Miami (Lot S329) and the custom-made 'Flintstone Family Car' from the 1994 feature film The Flintstones.
