I'm thinking there has to be some plastic glassware at a thrift store, or maybe some kind of soda bottle or liquid-soap or shampoo bottles that would work as almost unbreakable bulbs. Most are even threaded on the top/now-bottom.
I think you could get away with a bit of "artistic license", they wouldn't have to be 100% accurate reproductions to achieve the effect.
That's a fantastic idea! Rig up a gaudy "starter" hand crank, that actually trips the switch for the noise-and-spark-maker. Ideally, you would discretely start the diesel at the same time. Then drive serenely away.
You could have a similar shut-down procedure, to "announce your arrival". Pretend to stick a crow bar or something into the works to stop it.
