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 26-27 in Santa Monica, Calif.

Mecum, which specializes in the sale of collector cars, says one of the auction's highlights will be Elvis' 1972 Cadillac Custom Estate Wagon. "The King of Rock n' Roll" owned the car from 1972 until his death in 1977, according to Mecum's Web site.

Mecum says items with ties to John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Nicholson, Roy Rogers, Hunter S. Thompson, Jimmy Stewart, Burt Reynolds and Gene Kelly also will be auctioned.
