Has anyone converted a 1992 pontiac lemans from wrongwd to rwd?

I want to build a rwd 1992 pontiac le mans because I love the way it looks and it is light weight, perfect for drifting and racing with the right mods. Is there a reasonable way to convert this to a rwd? Like with a drivetrain on a similar car that is rwd?

do you have a very large skill set involving welding, fabricating parts from raw stock, large amount of money, etc. If not come up with a another car that is already rwd.

Maybe a Chevrolet Chevette or a Pontiac T1000 is you closest RWD match. The front suspension and trans tunnel will be your hardest obstacles.(IMO) Doug in P.R.
