Want more proof that cars from the wee old days are just as impressive as the new sleek curvy wheels churned out by today's best concept artists? Meet Pontiac's transparent car from 1939. It's old, it's sexy and it's only been driven for a total of 86 miles in the last 72 years.
There's no denying it — General Motors' Pontiac Deluxe Six sedan looks fantastic. Not only is the car constructed from Plexiglas, but it has white rubber wheels! How do you drive around and not dirty those wheels up? But in all seriousness, the 1939 Pontiac was was made to be the main attraction at the New York World's Fair primarily to show off the engineering wonders of an automobile innards.
In the years following its display in New York, the "Ghost Car" made its way to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. where it sat for eight years before disappearing into the garages of private collectors in the '80s. But, fret not, the clear Pontiac is back in the spotlight and it's ready to be auctioned off at the RM Auctions in Plymouth Michigan on July 30.
