Oh Lord, won’t you buy me, um, how about this?

From the story:
The famous psychedelic Porsche convertible driven by late singing legend Janis Joplin is going up for sale.
Auction house RM Sotheby’s said the Porsche 356C 1600 Cabriolet would go on the block on December 10 in New York and estimated the sale would generate more than $US400,000.
Joplin’s family, after lending it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland for the last couple of decades, has decided for some reason to sell the car. A ’65, this was one of the last 356 models to be produced, after which Porsche moved on to the 911. Presumably, her friends all drove these.
