Hey people of automation. as some of you are aware, it has been a while since i have posted anything, this is due to a pretty good reason. i just hated the layout and mess my old thread was and the mess my engines/car list was in game as well, so i chose to just simply start Galt over from scratch (as a result, may a moderator please lock/delete my old Galt and Volta threads) this new format I’m trying should allow me to update cars at any time, and allow me to more easily lay them out for reading pleasure. anyhow though, onto the revised company founding story
The date is January, 1945. WWII is still going on. however, the European front is coming to a close, leaving Japan as the only enemy left. one of the higher ups in the army, unaware of the Manhattan project, started drafting up plans for a land based invasion. part of this plan required more Jeeps to be produced, but production capacity was already full. as a result, He convinced the government to give a start-up capital of one billion dollars in today’s money to start up another production plant. to head this new company, He ordered one of his best men home. This soldier then went home, and started to run the company. clueless as what to name it, he took inspiration from a bag containing salt produced by a brand called Gold. out of ideas, he merged the words Gold and Salt, leading to the company name Galt.
