Motorized pedal cars. Post your pics or URL

I've got a couple of pedal car bodies. I would like to motorize one and turn the other into a stroller.

I've seen them with gas motors and electric. The electric I saw was using a 6volt Ford starter and a car battery. It had wheelie bars because as soon as the guy hit the button, his front wheels were in the air the whole time.

I can't seem to find any pictures on the net. You type in "pedal cars" and you get all kinds of other crap.

Anyone here have a custom pedal car?

It will do about 20 mph on the wheelie bars. Uhhhhh ..... and it's unstable enough to make a grown man scream like a little girl.
