Sheryl Crow is auctioning off her 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster. The singer is auctioning off the classic car next month and that the proceeds will go toward helping rebuild the tornado-torn city of Joplin in her native state of Missouri.
Crow says she loves the car and has had it for six years, but doesn't drive it anymore, so rather than let it collect dust, she is auctioning it off for a good cause. What a doll.
Local sources report that Crow hopes the car will fetch up to $500,000 at the August 21st auction in Pebble Beach, California but she'll be just as happy if it raises $100,000.
The proceeds from the auction will go to the Joplin Schools Recovery Fund.
Would you bid on this car if you had the means?
