Elliott Smith’s car (a retro 1999 Volkswagen Passat GLX) is for sale right here in Austin, Texas for $4,000. All proceeds will go to the SIMS Foundation.

About the Foundation:
The SIMS Foundation’s mission is to provide access to and financial support for mental health and addiction recovery services for Austin-area musicians and their families. SIMS was founded in 1995 by the friends and family of Sims Ellison, a talented young Austin musician, after his battle with depression ended in suicide.

Elliott’s own life ended in suicide from two self-inflicted stab wounds to the chest (that some still claim was a possible homicide). The talented lyricist left a simple goodbye Post-it note that read, “I’m so sorry—love, Elliot. God forgive me.”
