Default Need info on domestic

Do any of you know of a domestic front longitudenal mounted engine FWD ?

I cant think of anything, my freind is doing a custom car and he wants to know. Domestic because of the cheaper costs, but if you know of anything cheap enough, thatd be great.

i think he meant an engine that's mounted like a RWD, but FWD instead. Yeah, how does that work? The engine would have to be way, way forward mounted in the engine bay...

but if you do it mid engine, you might as well put the power to the rear wheels anyway... which is what all mid engine cars have anyway
