How would you model a bumper car out of fondant to use as a small topper for cupcakes?

I'm afraid I'm going to end up with what looks like a collection of colored peanuts with stripes down the side.

I would love any suggestions.

Thank you.

Hi,
I've attached a picture of the bumper car cakes they made on Ace of Cakes, I think basically you need a ball of fondant, flatten the bottom a bit for the bottom of the car, make a little cut out for where the person would sit, two little dots for the headlights, and a little square piece of fondant for a grill on the front. You could complete it with a little piece of wire, and a fondant ball on the wire and stick it in the back of the bumper car.
