Okay, you are giving lots of mixed information here. At first you say he is scared of everything. Now you say he runs around the park like a normal happy dog.
You need to be really precise with your observation or you can't help this dog. The best thing to do would be to keep a log of exactly what is going on around him when he shows the fear behaviors. You will want to study the link I gave you, look at all the videos a couple of times, so that you can note exactly what behaviors your pup is showing when he sees people, when when he gets close to things that seem to throw him off of his normal behavior, whenever he seems to be startled or upset about anything. As soon as possible when you get back home from taking him out create a set of notes in the log about what was going on when he seemed startled, upset, or fearful. Make notes about his exact behaviors.
He may also have severe motion sickness so try traveling with him in a crate with a sheet completely covering the crate so that he cannot see the world around him moving. I have had to do this for one of my dogs until he was around a year old when the motion sickness got much better.
