Sheryl Crow will be auctioning off her classic car and proceeds will go toward helping rebuild the tornado-ravaged city of Joplin.

The Grammy award-winning singer, a native of Missouri, is selling her 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster.

Crow said she has had the car for six years, but she doesn't drive it anymore. She reportedly hopes to fetch up to $500,000.

The auction will be held in Pebble Beach, Calif. on Aug. 21.
