Some winning bidder will soon be cruising life's winding road in Sheryl Crow's 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster.

The Grammy award-winning singer said that she's auctioning off the classic car next month and that the proceeds will go toward helping rebuild the tornado-ravaged city of Joplin in her native state of Missouri.

Cheryl says she loves the car and has had it for six years, but doesn't drive it anymore.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that Crow hopes the car will fetch up to $500,000 at the August 21 auction in California. But she says she'd be happy if it raises $100,000.

Crow was a schoolteacher before launching her singing career, and the money will go to the Joplin Schools Recovery Fund.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
