Default What would be the ultimate donor engine/tranny?

One more time...
If I could find a t-boned or rear-ended Caddy for real cheap, what year and model should I look for to do an engine and tranny swap?
I'd like to start keeping my eye out for a totalled Caddy that I could possibly pick up real cheap and swap in the drivetrain.

I'd love to drop a 32 V Northstar into a Bonneville
