Glorious concept cars as well as production cars make it to the spotlight at manufacturer displays at auto shows every year, but there has never been anything quite like the Pontiac Deluxe Six Plexiglas “Ghost Car” at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. Front and center at The Highways and Horizons exhibit, the entire vehicle body was crafted from transparent plexiglass for onlookers to see virtually every aspect of the car including the engine bay, suspension, chassis, and door panels, as well as other mechanicals. It gave the public a never-before-seen view of the inner workings of a car, and it cost a whopping $25,000 at the time. It was revolutionary back then, but maybe putting a woman in the trunk today wouldn’t go over so well.

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
