Steve McQueen's trucks, Elvis Presley's car to be auctioned
If you've got a bunch of extra money and you like things that were owned by celebrities, the Mecum Auctions are for you. The auction house specializes in automobiles and celebrity items and they aren't fooling around with their offerings. Their next auction features two different trucks owned by the late actor Steven McQueen.
The first is a custom camper van he bought on the spot, after passing it on a drive one day. The 1952 Chevrolet was one of many vehicles McQueen owned, with his widow Minty McQueen saying, "Steve's collection of cars and motorcycles cluttered the private driveway that serviced a row of homes near the beach, but that didn't stop him from buying whatever he wanted." That camper also has the distinction of being the last automobile McQueen drove in before his 1980 death from cancer.
