Mirror, mirror cars from my crypt collection, handmade fiberglass, three feet plus long.

 

Can you name them? They are old, hint (GM).

 

What was their purpose? (I know).

Not a kart body.

These are prototype mirror cars, only one half of a body. You place these up against a wall mirror and you will get a 3D view, you don't see these often, all hand made. The center photo is the Pontiac Firebird, has the bird on the hood.

I have seen mirror bodies before, but never anything that large. Do you know what approximate scale they are? And did you have a hand in making them?
