The Golden Sahara II

Jim Street designed and built a car he called The Golden Sahara II, which we get to see on a 1962 broadcast of the TV show I've Got a Secret. I thought the front of the car was the back at first. The paint contains fish scales. The tires are glass. There's a bar in the back. You can steer it with a joystick. And the whole thing cost $75,000 in 1950s money. No wonder it didn't take off.
