If you love looking at beautiful old-fashioned and classic cars as I do, I think you’ll find this–the 1939 Pontiac Plexiglas Deluxe Six Ghost Car–very cool. As its name implies, you can see through its outer, clear Plexiglass cover made by the company Rohm and Haas. General Motors made it for its “Highways and Horizons” exhibit at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. The car also has white tires and goes up for auction in the Detroit area on July 30th. It is expected to go for nearly half a million dollars.
One wonders, if it gets in a fender-bender, whether a good body shop can fix it. You’d probably need a good plexiglass artist, instead, and it would cost you a pretty penny. More about this very cool car from Motor Trend. A Dodge Viper would look cool like this.
