Here is the limo I am thinking about getting http://adcache.collectorcartraderonline.com/10/2/2/87265922.htm

If I get it I want to turn it into a nice hot rod what size engine & transmission are in it know? What sould I do to it should I get a new engine or should keep the old one & just update it. If I get it I am looking to drop $10k to $20K into it to make it a decent hotrod what sould I do. I want to get a automatic racing transmission & a engine with 850+ horse power eninge.

Eh! I could do a whole write up with this but it seems to be more of a fantasy rather than anything you will actually do so I'm not gonna waste the time. Good luck?!.

To 502s I say BAH. Keep it Cadillac powered. With 10k into it, you might have $4-5k left for a motor. Which is in the price segment where the Cad 500 shines. I'd go big cam w/the necessary shaft rockers, ported iron heads, forged pistons and rods, then spray the hell out of it.
