Bascially you have to affix a RWD Frame/chassis to the bottom of the stripped bonnie body.

You won't really be able to sell the car ever, and it causes a lot of headaches, and will be heavy.

It'* definitely do-able, there is a guy who runs a Hemi-powered K-car at the Mopar show in Columbus every year.

Check this out!
Type in "Ford+Focus+V8" on Google, and see what turns up!

Saw one of these, I think it was in Car&Driver, had the supercharged '04 Cobra motor shoehorned into it!

For my money, I would invest in one of these Bonnevilles

This one has 3-on-the-tree
