please i need your input for senior capstone project

hello everyone, I am a senior at sycamore highschool in Montgomery. I am doing my capstone project on hotrods and i need some questions answered from everyday gearheads and hotrodders like all of you.
How much did it cost you to make a hot rod? how long did it take? did you use original engine or engine swap? how far in restoration process do you go? do you have educational background in mechanics and bodywork? If you can answer any of those questions i would greatly appreciate it.

I'm gonna say almost every answer is going to be similar to this.
