Auction For Sheryl Crow's Mercedes-Benz

When we found out that Sheryl Crow owned a 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL, we weren't in the least surprised. You just know that a femme rocker who sings all she want to do is have some fun must have a gorgeous, topless set of wheels in which to tool around.

We were, however, surprised, to learn that she was planning to auction the restored '59 Mercedes-Benz. After all, a white 190 SL with whitewall tires, a removable hardtop and soft top, and new black leather-appointed seating seems like something you'd want to hang on to.

But, following the destructive tornadoes that swept through Joplin, Missouri, close to where she spent much of her childhood, Crow decided to auction her beloved Mercedes-Benz to help raise funds for necessary reconstruction efforts. "After the tornado in Joplin," Crowe explains, "I was moved to help rebuild a city so close to where I grew up in Missouri. My hope is that the auction of my 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL Roadster will bring funds to help rebuild the schools in the area."1

If you're interested in bidding for the title of Crow's stunning 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL, and helping a good cause, you can attend the auction hosted by Gooding & Company in Pebble Beach California, on August 21. Though be prepared. The car is expected to fetch around $80,000...maybe more depending on how fast word spreads. All proceeds from the car will go to the Joplin Schools Recovery Fund.
