Evan here is one lucky five year old. In 2009 he received one of those Lightning McQueen Powerwheels, which would have been fun enough for someone his age. But according to the poster of this video, "after three years of use he had worn through the plastic wheels. We decided to upgrade the OEM plastic wheels with rubber tires."

But that was not the end. Not by a mile. His father, in a shop with some high-performance metal, continued to modify the Powerwheel, to the point that it now has a partial aluminum chassis, 24-volt gel batteries and a 500-Watt, 0.66-horsepower electric motor. The car also has disc brakes, Sparco battery cutoff switch, and a modulated throttle.

Further emphasizing that Evan here has the coolest parents, he races the custom Powerwheel at a dirt track, just like the dirt track in Cars. Check out the video below to see this awesome ride... and to think about how accomplished a driver you'd be now if you had a car like this at his age!

      Okay, just watched the video - that was awesome. That kid is lucky as hell. I can't say enough about this dad's skills. I think that's the way all PowerWheels should come out of the box!

      This is SO awesome! The car, the kid's interest in cars, the father-son time, and memories created. I this makes me so excited to have kids in the future, when the time is right. I can't wait to do stuff like this with my future kids! Evan, you've got one of the coolest Dad's I've ever seen! Great job, Dad!

      If you frequent a car blog and that doesn't put a smile on your face, I don't know what will.

      I nominate that guy for parent of the year. Our society wouldn't be near as screwed up if more parents spent time like with with their kids.

      Yeah that's awesome. My father wired the connectors for an extra battery in my Bigfoot but it didn't have nearly the same effect as this complete transformation. Coolest dad ever is right!

      That's really cool! His father is creating good memories that will never leave the mind of this kid's. Now, someone have a bet about the future of this kid's? Of course he will be a passionate for cars! I want one for my nephew!
