    NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (June 16, 2012) - Mecum will offer a collection of nearly 140 American collector cars spanning a full century of automotive history ranging from a 1908 Maxwell to a 2008 Roush-powered Ford Mustang.

    All vehicles will be sold at No Reserve Saturday, June 16 at the Salmon Brothers "Car Barn" at 4343 Roundtop Road in North Little Rock. Auction starts at 11 a.m. but you can preview the cars starting at 8 a.m.

    Twin brothers and Arkansas natives, Tom and Don Salmon, have spent well over half a century amassing an incredible collection of classic and collector automobiles with one common theme; American made.  With an example of nearly every major domestic manufacturer represented in the collection, this special Mecum Auction event will be a true celebration of the American automobile.   

    Among the impressive line-up of vehicles crossing the block on this action packed day include an original 1957 Pontiac Bonneville, a rare 1957 fuel-injected Chevy Nomad, and a stunning 1934 Cadillac Fleetwood V12 All-Weather Phaeton that is one of only 3 ever produced. Engines and road art will also be sold. 

    The complete online catalog is available at Mecum.com.

    The public is welcome and bidder registration can be completed at the door for $100. All registered bidders receive a commemorative copy of the Salmon Brothers Collection Catalog.

    Mecum historian and photographer David Newhardt says, "We've never been here before! And having the Salmon Brothers come in and ask us to auction off their 140 automobiles plus roadart and everything else we have, this has really been a special treat for the entire Mecum Crew."

    Those unable to attend in person can take in all the action during the live web broadcast at Mecum.com with multiple camera angles and play-by-play commentary
