      I wonder... old air cooled VW engine.. automatic? Must be a later engine.
      But 2009 title? Car title?
      What is the cabin made from?
      Question questions.

      Since it's three wheels, it's probably going to be a motorcycle title. So, I am guessing where ever the donor forks came from.

      Looks like he used an old Piaggio Ape chassis and cab for the project:

      The people around here tuck their teeshirts into their jeans. So a sense of humor will not be welcomed.

      Damn, you're right. I saw the segmented windshield and ran with it.

      Maybe a later or earlier model? Dunno, but it looks close.
