Farna has lots of good advice (above) that applies to ALL young people getting into the hobby. It's no sin to work your way into hot rodding by starting out with a perfectly respectable grocery getter and then honing your skills (and your tool collection) as you make step by step alterations and improvements to the body and drivetrain. Don't get in over you head financially or technically. That is EXACTLY the hot rod tradition. Those "rats" you see today are the "grocery getters" of the 1940's and 50's...the cheap, available "clay" that early hot rodders began to modify and make their own.
