    I helped my Dad build a 1932 Ford four-door sedan in the 80's as a kid. It had a Corvair front suspension when he bought it. He reworked that to square it up and make it work properly; he also built a triangulated setup for a Camaro rearend. He bought a flooded '76 Olds 98 and dropped the 455/400 into the '32; and fabbed all the mounts, brackets, shifter, and wiring to make it work. Unfortunately, he had to sell it when he lost his job. We lived in Houston - I believe the buyer chopped the top on the Fordor. So, that's how I got into hot rodding.
    In case you're wondering what the Rayco Cycles references, I can tell you a story...want to hear it? Well, here it go.
    My grandfather and his father operated a bicycle shop in Louisville, Kentucky back in the Thirties. They sold bikes, bike parts, and bicycle "sundries". He re-badged some bikes, that I assume he bought directly from the manufacturer, as "Rayco" and sold those in his shop. True story. So, grease and wheels have been in the family for about a century. Money, unfortunately, has not been in the family. :)
