 CAR USED BY KENNEDY DURING CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS
 UP FOR AUCTION ON 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF EVENT
 LAS VEGAS, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The 1962 Lincoln Continental convertible used by President John F. Kennedy to inspect the troops during the Cuban Missile Crisis in November 1962, will be auctioned at "no reserve" on Nov. 7 at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas during the fifth annual international collector car event known as "The Auction."
 Proceeds from the sale of the car, which is expected to bring in at least $100,000, will benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Tulsa, Okla., where the car's owner resides. The Ronald McDonald House provides housing for families of critically ill or injured children.
 The convertible is owned by Juanita Satterfield and was purchased from The Car Collector Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tenn., by her son, antique auto buff Bill Satterfield.
 This is not the first time the Satterfields have auctioned a celebrity's car to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. In September, they sold Madonna's wedding present from ex-husband Sean Penn -- a coral 1956 Ford Thunderbird -- to an Indianapolis man for $60,000.
 The owners believe this is the only JFK presidential car ever made available to the public. It comes complete with documents recently released through the Freedom of Information Act and photographs that show the president riding in the back seat at Fort Stewart, Ga.
 "The Auction" is considered the foremost auction in the collector car industry for cars of distinctive style and historic significance. More than 350 rare and unique vehicles will be auctioned during the five-day event Nov. 4-8. To register to bid on this historic vehicle, telephone "The Auction" at 702-794-3174.
