“One hundred and two horsepower.” Jack Chancellor slammed his fist into the engine schematics on his test. “One hundred and two horsepower is not enough, John.”
“It’s all I had to give, sir,” John protested.
“You had the entire design resources of the power division at your fingertips, and all you could come up with was a hundred and two? God damn it, John, you were supposed to be able to pull the balls off a bull with this thing, and you’ve made it a goat jockey?” Jack growled.
“Sir, Mr. Wainwright kept…”
“Don’t put this on someone else, Jack.”
The senior engineer had had enough. He shot up from his chair, grabbed the chair next to it, and flung it across the room. “Will you listen to me, you old jackass?”
Jack was taken aback. He stood up, taking a drag from his cigarette. There was a brief pause. “Go on, then.”
“Mr. Wainwright’s Taurus project is almost two years behind schedule,” John protested, starting to calm down. “There was no V8 available. I couldn’t put anything more than an Orion in. And if you REALLY want to know whose fault that is,” the engineer laughed nervously as he ran his hands through his hair. “It’s yours, sir. For putting too much work on him and not giving him enough engineers.”
Jack set his cigarette in the ash tray, sat down, and calmly folded his hands in front of him. “This is going to cost us, John.”
“No, sir. It’s going to cost YOU. The project’s almost done. Your golden boy can finish it out. I quit.”
John Case turned and took three steps before his boss stopped him.
“So that’s it? Your illustrious career is going to end with, what, a mediocre wagon? Is that how you want to be remembered?”
John turned around and snarled. “What do you care? You’re too stuck in your ways. You don’t listen to what anyone says, save for Stanton. You’d rather run this company into the ground than adapt.”
Jack lifted his cigarette from the tray to his mouth, leaning back as he inhaled. “Maybe not. You know, John, it’s been a long-ass time since anyone’s had the balls to call me out on anything. But are you right about this? About Desmond?”
“Absolutely,” he retorted without hesitation.
“Alright then. One more project for you. One to be remembered for the ages. Instead of fizzling out, you’ll be remembered,” the CEO made an emphatic gesture with his hands, “as the man who brought Ardent out of the war, and led Stanton Glass to his golden age.”
John rolled his eyes and groaned. “You seriously want me to work with THAT arrogant son of a bitch?”
Jack nodded and puffed.
John paused for a moment. “I’ll consider it.”

Guilt-patriot tripping people into buying our cars is the best marketing strategy we could think of, because honestly, there aren’t any redeeming features of this thing
Redeeming feature: Yours is much better looking than mine.
Not redeeming feature: You managed to squeeze out less HP from 50 more cubes than my straight six.
(now preparing to drag Savage/Wasp into the Bogliq-Ardent rivalry)
What’s the point of that power when we don’t have any real tires
I didn’t have any problems finding a way to gear my car to use it…
@Imperator is it still okay to join the current round?
and this is set globally, or in america or some place like that/
I thought we were in Europe TBH…

If possible, Conte will join in the 60s

And can you please, PLEASE tell us which region we’re set in so we can fine tune the trajectories our companies will take @Imperator
I don’t mind if it’s set as world wide but it’d be really nice to have this topic clarified…
Sorry been one hell of a day. It’s set in Western Europe. So Germany France U.K. Spain and Italy essentially
Also, entries close in 13 hours!
Takemi’s submission. Kei cars weren’t really around until the mid to late 1950’s, so I thought I’d do a passenger version facelift of the van thing I did for '46.
