Exclamation Re: Build your own car from SCRATCH?!

So I am just starting my build and was wondering how you guys tackled the transmission. I am hoping to use a Ford 5.0L V8 motor out of a 2011 Ford Mustang GT, due to its great power to weigh ratio and HP possibilities.
However.... I don't know how to do the transmission since my project car will be a rear engine car. I have though of extending the rear of the car and putting the current transmission in backwards, making it a front wheel drive...(obviously i will custom every single mount and bracket)... how ever then the gear shifter would simply be backwards, am i right? OR if some one knows a way to make it possible to make it mid engine, and keep it rear wheel drive with that motor please let me know!!!
