Ideas for a Power Wheels

The other day on the way to work I found an old Power Wheels Car that someone was throwing out. I'm still new to all of this stuff and was wondering if someone could give me some ideas of what I could make with this? I'm going to have to go through all the wiring to see if it is all good and figure out what is what in it.

I turned mine into a vehilce with treads (not technically a "tank")

If it has two motors, you've got the base for a nice differential drive robot platform. If it is one motor, you'll need to add an actuator for the steering wheel.
