If there’s one thing that Janis Joplin loved it was her psychedelic 1964 Porsche 356C Cabriolet. She initially bought the car in 1968 for $3,500 but it wasn’t all decked out the way it was when she was finished with it. Initially the car was simply plain and white, but after picking up the ride she decided to personalized it.

Joplin brought in a friend to customize the car with a on of psychedelic markings that included her astrological sign. The car stayed in the family until it was auctioned off in 2015 for $1.7 million. Now that's a groovy investment.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
