I think these would look especially cool on minis, but possibly funnier on an extended cab van. they's be made of grey plastic or sheet metal and about a foot high and two feet wide, with a magnetic base.

Annotation:







       I saw a small car, once, that had a fixed key on the back.
I think the key should be motor driven ( I wouldn't want to get out and wind it up all the time - even if it would complete the illusion).
The motor driven key could be driven at a speed which relates to the speed of the car, which might look better.

       Neither - what cornishman would drive an "extended cab van?" If it's not a traaaaactor, it's not cool.
