A ghost car

Clicking around I found this image bellow:


Like that time when I found the gigantic clothespin, at first I was not sure if it was some Photoshop trick or if some crazy man had done it himself. Doing some research I found that it is a real car, built around 1939 by Pontiac, a division of General Motors with a logo that could be in that movie Metropolis, with the objective to show the use of new materials to built cars and to show how they could be in the future. It received the nickname of Ghost Car, for obvious reasons (yes?).

Last year, the car was sold in at an audition for 308 thousand dollars. I don’t know if I’m being easily impressed, but to me it was a cheap price, don’t you think?
