Car collectors pay high prices for unique or unusual cars. The transparent car made for the 1939/1940 New York World’s Fair was sold last week (July 30, 2011) for $308,000 by RM Auctions in Plymouth, Michigan. The 1939 Pontiac Deluxe Six "ghost car" was made to show the mechanical parts of the car and to promote the new transparent material, Plexiglas. It may be the only car like it, although rumor suggests two cars were made.
