Janis Joplin and her legendary psychedelic 1964 Porsche 356 C 1600 SC Cabriolet. Her friend Dave Richards famously customized the car with art that he said reflected "The History of the Universe" for her with pictures of butterflies,rainbows, jellyfish, birds and Janis with her band, Big Brother and the Holding Company. Joplin paid $3500 for the car in 1968 and when it went up for auction in 2015, her sister and biographer, Laura Joplin told the Boston Globe, "Wherever Janis went in the car, her fans recognized it. When she parked it and returned, there was always at least one fan note under the wipers." Photo: Getty.
