What about a scale model wind generator? Maybe a working one, big enough to power a single CFL bulb. Then you could put a scale model of your car beside it. You're showing the concept to the passer-by, but not misleading on the size required.

Mini windmill (working), powering a light, with a model car plugged into it.
