Default rear wheel drive stick shift bonne!

one of my friends works for a guy that knows a guy that would and could do it. he said he'* done it so an impala before and would take on the project of doin it to a bonneville for a good 7 large (roughly). i would love nothing more than a rear wheel drive stick shift bonne and i could come up with 7 Gs. but man that is a lot of money and this car is a 93. maybe i'd buy another one that was newer and in better shape and do it maybe. let me know what ya guys think!

A lot of frame/body work will need to be done. You'll need to make a tunnel under the car, and change the rear suspension out, and make a front axle. You'll need to make the car strong enough, remove the whole PCM, but keep the dash working, get custom driveshaft, have the whole front assembly for the motor redone, adjust the steering most likely..

That'* all i can think about. That'* not even the small details.

yeah i had been thinking about it a lot, and i have front bucket seats with a center console so theres planty of room to make a tunnel and have the tranny right there for the manual shift, it'll much easier than having to screw around with a 60/40 bench.
