Default Pontiac "Ghost Car"

An extraordinary transparent car is set to fetch as much as $475,000 when it goes up for auction.

The motor, dubbed the 'Ghost Car', is a Pontiac Deluxe Six which, bizarrely, has been covered in the see-through material Plexiglas.

Built in 1939 by General Motors and chemical company Rohm and Haas at a cost of $25,000, it was the first transparent full-sized car to be made in America.

World's only remaining 'Ghost Car' headed for auction... incredible images of the Plexiglas Pontiac expected to fetch almost $500,000 | Mail Online

Does that mean that when you are driving it down the road picking your nose that no one will see you??? Surely though it is a well known fact that in most cars you are invisible when running a finger to the knuckle up your snout. Take a short drive, and report back.

I've never seen that one. Cool

Read the word Ghost and thought it was a very fast Pontiac.

Things must be slow if you reached back that far.
