CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Janis Joplin's family got a lot more than they expected when they put her car up on the auction block.
And this week, they did just that!
The original prediction was it would auction off at $500,000, but it sold for more than triple that -- $1,760,000!
The rock legend bought it used for $3,500 in 1968.
The Joplin family says they are using the money to support charities in Janis' memory.
