There are kits for adding EL WIre and similar to bike wheels - they should work on the back wheels of a traditional wheelchair.

I saw a bloke in a chair a couple of weeks ago, the small front wheels had been replaced with something like those light-up heel-wheels that kids use - when they moved, they blinked different colours.

Add horns and bells to she can scare pedestrians out of her route.

Fog lights.

Some sort of sound-effect player, so that she sit at a pedestrian crossing and "rev her engine" waiting for the lights to change.

I'm thinking some kind of unholy hybrid of Jessica Tandy, David Carridine from Death Race 2000, the disco set from Saturday Night Fever, and a Dalek.
