It's not too late to be a holy roller: Pope Francis' Philadelphia Fiat is still up for auction.

The black Fiat 500L is one of two used by Francis during his trip to the city in September. The live auction starts at 9 p.m. Friday at a black-tie event kicking off the weekend's Philadelphia Auto Show. Bidders can also make offers online.

His other Italian economy car will be displayed during the show and might be auctioned off later.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia says all auction proceeds will benefit charities and the archdiocese's special education schools.

About 20 students from the special education schools got a sneak peek of the auto show Friday afternoon and heard a story about the papal visit as they took a look at his car.
