Ideas for a eletric heater in a pro street type car?

Hey guys,
Long story short I have a street/strip car that has no heater box,dash/defrost vents etc,and was looking for ideas on maby a small eletric heater to use in just the very cold months.
I know I could always just hop in the truck or take one of my other cars but there are times I like to drive the car if its a clear day.
To tell the truth Im ok in the car with the windows up to the low 40's (got lots of header heat to keep me warm) but I need something for when it gets really cold here in NC (thats only about 20-30 degrees to you northern folks)

Anybody make a eletric fan/heater that works in cars?
Another idea I had was to run a 400 watt power inverter and some sort of really small eletric heater mounted somewhere just to knock the chill out of the air.

Open to ideas but Im not plainning on putting the heater box etc back in the car.

This is not electric but is a compact heater. Check out the Flex-a-lite Mojave heater in the Summit catalog.
