Here's something you won't see anywhere else: this little car is called a Dragonfly. It has an all-fiberglass monococque structure, the roof slides back for entry (there was also a removable rear roof section, not shown here) and the seats come up sort of like theatre seats so you don't step on them. Weighing 800 pounds and originally intended to be powered by a snowmobile engine, the prototype was finally fitted with a Subaru flat 4 (so big that the license plate had to be bolted to the transmission case where it stuck out through the bodywork). Only one was built, as far as I know, in Illinois in 1976.
