America's First Ever Transparent 'Ghost Car'

It was the first ever transparent car in America.

This incredible plexiglass Pontiac is the work of General Motors in collaboration with plexiglass manufucatures Rohm & Haas.

Built around the chassis of a 1939 Pontiac Deluxe Six, it was first displayed at the Highways and Horizons pavilion at the 1939-40 World’s Fair in New York.

Fast-forward to 2011 where it was sold at RM Auctions' St. John's auction in Michigan on July 30 for a cool $308,000 - which isn't too bad when you consider that it would cost $25,000 to build it from scratch.

There's no doubt whomever has the pleasure of driving it, will be the envy of the town - although it's transparent design might not be the best car to get in on with your partner.....
