license tracing

In calif. you can have the DMV trace a plate for a fee. The caveat is they will notify the vehicle owner first, and he/she can refuse the release of the info.
Maybe NY has the same service.

You've got pictures—upload them to Google Images. They have some mechanism to find similar pictures, if they have indexed any on the Web.

Hmmm... was just noticing... no obvious way to access the engine compartment. Maybe through plastic/glass portion of the rear? If so, it would be a really small access area.

big meats

Those are pretty wide tires for economy purposes Ill bet its a TDI beatle pan with kit body perhaps modified citroen or pinnafarina kit???

there was also a bulldog with that bodystyle perhaps that was a protion of one of these kits. Might search scca vintage class plexi bodies too.

My vote for rolled-his-own. The body is a simple curve from the front to rear wheels (look at the transitions in the sun's shadow line in the side view) and there isn't much crown in the front, rear and top. Possibly aluminum.

Pop-outs for side windows? Those would be more streamlined when open, but they'd be a pain on toll roads.

I wonder what the windshield is.

I can help here. It's a clear barrier situated in front of the driver and passengers intended to protect the occupents from wind, weather & such. Since 1937 the use of Safety Glass has been mandated for the material of choice.

Hope this helps.

(The Hospital?? What is it?)
