Built on a 1953 Lincoln Capri hardtop by King of the Kustomizers, George Barris, the Golden Sahara II was a luxe vision of the automotive future. In 1962, the car appeared on the “I’ve Got a Secret” game show, where owner Jim Street explained the its interior features and electronics to host Gary Moore. The Golden Sahara II ran on remote control, via steering wheel or push buttons, or voice activation. Its glass wheels lit up, and there was a sonically determined automatic braking system. Plus it looked snazzy as all get out, with its pearlized finish and gold interior. Funny how nobody mentions anything about fuel economy.
