Welcome to the site Thunder Road.
Haven't seen that movie in years. Sounds like you have a great project for the future. Get the suspension and drivetrain done and drive and enjoy it. The pretty stuff and speed can come later as time and money permit. The important thing is to enjoy yourself. How about posting some pics so we can see what you are starting with. Good luck with your project.
