Grehet Motors - For the Better, For You (R.I.P Rabion Hamston)


#1

Lore stats and Background still to be determined


#2

September 1945

With the World War ended. The world is moving from war production into surplus usage because they were cheap, a lot of the soldiers coming back home are now jobless. A lot of tooling used for making various vehicles are now being sold as is, stripped down for parts, or just scrapped. the society is rebuilding everything. and they all lack tools for it, and everything is going slowly. in this kind of situation, there are people that came out of the war in better shape than some other, and a lot of them are seeing the opportunity and starts new businesses.
.
Of these people, there’s a group of friends that were a Admiral, a chief engineer, and a head accountant back in the war. the Admiral was taken off duty after the war. but he had quite a saving from his generous paychecks in the war. the Chief Engineer and the Head Accountant was already good friend in the company that they worked for before, but said company went bankrupt near the end of the war due to the factories were bombed and they couldn’t continue business. The 2 met the Admiral just after the Japanese declare their surrender, in a tea shop, where the Head Accountant slipped and poured his tea on to the Admiral. and that turned into a conversation, and the 3 got friendly quick.


February 1946

With the war recovery going full bore. Economy is growing fast and vast, faster than word of mouth could spread rumor, more vast than the horizon you could see. War surplus are going our for sale cheap, and they’re being bought and used to produce everything for the recovery effort. it’s 1946, and our Admiral want a piece of that, now that he’s taken off duty, but not at the retiring age just yet. one afternoon he invited his 2 new buddies for a talk to build a company, and them being the people that were more well off after the war, they don’t have much problems with capital money, and they all settled on either making small logistic airplanes since Yames did have some involvement in plane development during the war. more specifically he’s one of the aero engine engineer. or the other option is automotive, cars or motorcycles. nevertheless, they are off starting with their story of a lifetime.


July 1946

only a few months after their last meeting, they found out that their small plane production plan has too much competition, with logistic war planes being sold for cheap converted to commercial use, same story with big bomber planes being converted into both passenger transport. It doesn’t seem sensible enough to make a new plane yet. and seeing that new and upcoming micro car trend. they also didn’t see motorcycles as a sensible option either. and super cheap car they intended also wouldn’t work, it could work, just not the super cheap for the masses car. and they settled on making a utility car for the growing economy. essentially a car for everyone that has a growing business. and with this, they went on their way finding factory spots and sourcing ex war production factory tools


December 1946

inside a meeting room they rented in a 4 star hotel building

  • Blake : “Gentleman. Meet Mr. Shew. He is now our new partner in the making of this company. You see, to put it shortly, he is our fresh injection of funds. An investor, and the land provider. While I do have some amount of funds to kick start this company, i don’t have enough to keep it going, and he owns a land outside of town where we could use to build our first factory. so gentlemen, please…”
    Shew : “sorry, if i may interject for a little bit. it’s not a land. it was an abandoned factory that was used up until the great depression. so while it is not new, you don’t have to build anew, just refurbish the building and give it a new life. some cost saving there”.

  • Blake : “ah. right, thank you for that info. and so gentlemen…”

  • Grudsen : “waitwaitwaitwait. Blake, would you come over here for a sec?”

  • Blake : “hmm? is something wrong?”

  • Grudsen : whispers “WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN ‘IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG?’. HE’S BLACK, AND HE’S RICH. are you sure he’s not a… you know…mafia. and are you FUCKING SURE that will not bring us any problem in the future?”

  • Blake : sigh “Grudsen, open up your mind a bit. there is nothing wrong with this. and don’t bring the notions that black people are inferior in this company. i believe you are better than this. there, Hamston is already shaking hands with him”

  • Grudsen : “you know Hamston good enough by now. he’s as pure as the angels. he doesn’t think much of anything except for his machines”

  • Blake : “… just go greet him and we’ll start the meeting”

  • Grudsen : “Really? Seriously?”

  • Blake : “yes. seriously.”

August 1949

  • Blake : finally, people, we can at least see the fruits of our work! this time, by our own conscious decision, and not an order from the people in the ranking above us!

  • Grudsen : it might as well be crucifixion. that was a damn hard 3 years.

  • Blake : yes. and a big thanks to you, we have put on a lot of burden on you these past 3 years. hopefully it should not get much harder on you in the future

  • Grudsen : sigh i doubt it. but it does feel satisfying when i see the result in front of my eye. i don’t know if i’ll ever get used to this feeling

Hamston standing beside the car about to the released for sale. grinning

suddenly he walked to the front of the car and flopped onto the hood of the car and spreading his hand as far as possible like he’s trying to hug it

  • Grudsen : HAMSTON! GET OFF OF IT! YOU’RE GONNA PUT A SCRATCH ON IT! realise that we’re about to release the car to the public and people out that door are just waiting for it

  • Hamston : just a sec would you. just let me admire what i have made for a moment.

  • Grudsen : sigh takes a look at his watch. waits a few second okay that’s enough. get up. you’re not a baby anymore

  • Hamston : could you not be always so rude?

  • Grudsen : how about you act like your age?

Blake, thinking ‘Grudsen is just like a big brother trying to keep his little brother from making too much ruckus’, just giggles

  • Blake : okay. it’s time for the show. prepare yourself you two. and Deborah, would you please grab my speech paper from my desk in my office?
  • Deborah : … staring at the 2 ‘brothers’
  • Blake : Deborah? can you hear me?
  • Deborah : eh!? oh, i’m really sorry, i was spacing out. what did you want sir?
  • Blake : please grab me my speech paper on my desk.
  • Deborah : ah, yes, right away sir

1949 Grehet Roly V

the very first car Grehet motors ever sell to the public. this is meant to be a relatively cheap utility vehicle for the common people that needs a smaller vehicle to transport items in the urban and suburban environment


1949 Grehet Roly

a sedan variant launched at the same time as the Roly V. most parts are shared so a lot of the (will be) available spare parts are interchangable with each other.


G-Anomaly

introducing the powerhouse that moves the Roly series. the G-Anomaly Series. an inline 4 cylinder with state of the art technology taken straight out of war machine application such as AeroCross* head design, overhead camshaft, ExFlow* exhaust headers, SuperMagneto*.

the version powering the Roly we are releasing is the

1.4L inline 4
. . . .61.3hp @4400RPM (43.3hp Net)
. . . .138Nm @2200RPM (95.9Nm Net)
16.5% Efficient


AeroCross -> Crossflow Head
Exflow -> non cast log exhaust header
SuperMagneto -> low friction Magneto

1955


Blake : well Grudsen… this is your 2nd chance. let’s hope this one won’t be a flop like the Roly is
Grudsen : i know… but hey, it was sharing so many parts with the Roly V that we barely lost anything in tooling right? and the Roly V is selling well, that covers up most of our lost.
Blake : it’s still a loss Grudsen. you’re the Accountant, you should know about this better than i do.
Grudsen : yes i know. there was no need to rub that in was there? and yes, we’re still in the red. not quite breaking even yet.
Hamston : but i still prefer the Roly to this… mess. it just looks better. it’s simpler, and this car’s monocoque body was just a headache to work with
Blake : sorry hamston. but you can’t always do what you just like. should i remind you that we’re a business now? like it or not, we need to have something that makes us money first, and then you can go work on your projects that you like, like we promised
Hamston : yes i do remember that. but i guess this car isn’t bad. it was just a headache to work out how to mass produce.
Grudsen : and to finance these steel presses too.
Blake : hey you’re the one that told me we should make it cheaper. this is the only way to go cheaper.
Grudsen : well at the time i didn’t know that making it cheaper is… more expensive
Deborah : sir, it’s time to for the ceremony to start


we are replacing our Grehet Roly with the more versatile

1955 Grehet Urban

for the super cheap urban commuter that seats 2, and have ample of room for storage and only drinks 9.8km/l!

and

1955 Grehet Urban Plus

for the small family living in the urban and suburban area. seating for 5 and room still available for luggage
and still only sips 9.3km/l

1959


  • Blake : GENTLEMAN… Grehet Motors is now officially 10 Years old. and it is only 1 minute left until midnight that marks 10 Years of Grehet Motor. with this beautiful champagne i will pop open, we shall start our small party together in this room. 15 seconds to go. let’s count down together!

together:

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1… HAPPY BIRTHDAY GREHET MOTORS!

  • Blake : everyone, CHEERS!

  • together : CHEERS!

  • Grudsen : PEOPLE! just a second before you go along with the party. we still have something else to announce. ahem Mr. Blake. would you please.

  • Blake: right. with how we are right now. we still have a long way to go to grow in this fierce competition. but, we have talked about it and agreed together. i think this is the right time for this. we are Expanding to America within the next 3 years!

silence…

  • Shew : allow me to elaborate further. i am the one who suggested this idea. yes, i know we are not even one of the major player in europe yet. that’s why i suggested this. let’s try our luck on the freedom land, and hopefully we can be more successful over there. some of you may think, “what about asia?” well we have thought about it as well. the economy is just not there yet, we don’t see much point investing in an area that could barely afford any cars at all for the moment. in fact. we are already on the process taking care of the registration of the company and the papers as we speak. and we already have a project car to be released in America we can reveal that it’s true. the rumours you may have heard about something crazy is true. but what it is, we don’t want to reveal it just yet. that’s it for the announcement. thank you for your time. now, please, enjoy yourself

Hamston : yeeheeheeheeheehee

1961 - Expanding to USA


  • Hamston : People of the United State of America, we, Grehet Motors, proudly present to you, our very first product for the people of America,

Grehet Falmo

  • Hamston : Along with the car. we are now introducing our new engine focused for the american market. the G-Vortex. this one nicknamed the Super3. this is a 3L V6 with overhead camshaft. giving you just as much power as the smaller V8, with better fuel efficiency

#7

1964 - Going Up in Life


  • Hamston : so now we have bought ourselves some more time until we can make our newest engine. let’s hope it’s really as good as we wanted it to be. what’s next for us?

  • Grudsen : big

  • Hamston : big?

  • Blake : yes. go big

  • Hamston : … i need you 2 to elaborate on this “going big”

  • Grudsen : we mean the engine capacity. we have been seeing trends in american market where their engines are going bigger and bigger in displacement. not only that, unlike our old image of them ‘refining old tech’, they seem to be catching up to us in technology in the same time. some big V8 of theirs are now also using overhead cams. i doubt that 4.2L V6 you made is even enough to cut it nowadays.

  • Hamston : right. well i do have something else up my sleeve for that V6. but by the sounds of it… it won’t last us long.

  • Blake : yes Hamston. we need a big breakthrough again. and possibly. this might be our last one. we are growing older. once again we need to put the future of this company in your hands and brains. and i have something for you too to help this. since this may be our last time leading this company. i’m not sparing any effort.

drops a calculator magazine on the table

  • Blake : open page 42.

  • Hamston : …are you… tell me you’re kidding opens the magazine

  • Blake : i told you. no efforts will be spared. and so will the research and development cost. we’re getting you an IBM mainframe computer to help you with our next car and engine… you see the new building we’ve almost finished on the edge of the factory?

  • Hamston : you’re telling me that’s not a factory expansion?

  • Blake : no. there is where we will put the computer

  • Grudsen : so as you can see… we’re betting this off for probably this last time, on you again. and we’ll do anything we can to support you

  • Blake : but it may take some time to set up. so first i want you to breathe one last life on to that V6 before we make our new engine and car
    .


1964 Grehet Falmo GTL

powered by the Boqliq Gamma 8 V8. the Falmo is no longer just a Family car. it is a Family car for the family that are going up in life and needs a life mobility support

Grudsen : here we go. “hey it didn’t go well last time. LET’S TRY HARDER”

Blake : i have no answer to that since it is kind of what is actually happening. this is our 2nd go at this. if this is also not received well as well. i guess we’re just too far forward

Grudsen : well whatever. it’s not like i’m completely against it. just wasn’t my recommendation, like i have been saying from when the idea of this car was thrown in

Blake : this is only like the 100th time you remind us of this Grudsen. let’s just start the product release ceremony shall we?

1973


  • Grudsen : so… our ‘limited edition’ Black Edition was received way better than we expected last time. so, let’s just hope this idea sells. making the V6 as an actual standard option
  • Blake : the people of America has spoken. they love their power. and we are a business, and we give people what they want, and they will give us their money. and unless there’s an unpredictable massive economy drop. i think it’s still going to stay selling well. we have been doing okay, but we still have not yet gotten a massive sales hit. we need to be doing better
  • Hamston : i don’t know anymore. i don’t know what the people actually wants at this point. i’m just going to try what i can engineering wise. we’re starting to get old. we start need outsider helps. advisories and such
  • Blake : as much as i hate it. i have to agree. we have our experience. but we just don’t have the youngsters spirit anymore. we need someone young to help us

  • Hamston : so with this. my experiment is done. we’re doubling the camshaft count, and we’re doubling the valve count.

  • Grudsen : well. i have prepared the budget we’ve been saving up. it’s time to start building our landmark.

  • Blake : in the meantime. we still have to find our successor. i’m getting way too old, i may not still be the CEO of this company when this car comes out

knock knock

  • Blake : Come in.

  • Assistant : excuse me sir, sir Matthew Jullian is here.

  • Blake : ah, tell him to go in.

  • Grudsen : Blake, who is this?

Jullian walks in

  • Jullian : good afternoon sirs

  • Blake : let me introduce you. Matthew Jullian. my new apprentice. a few years ago i met him when i was going around trying to source a better quality piston rings for the Emotion. i met him. he owns a small factory that produces various mechanical seals. over time i befriended him and saw quite a lot of interesting way of running a business that we never did. he has the talent and brain to be a leader. so i offered him this apprentice position.

  • Grudsen : what the heck Blake, you can’t just decide your successor on your own like this

  • Blake : of course not. this is why i asked him to come in here today. for now he’s just an apprentice.

  • Jullian : be assured sir. i’ll be sure to prove my worth to you over time, you just need to give me some time.

  • Blake : what he says, it’s not a certain thing that he will replace me, we 3 will decide together on that.

  • Grudsen : … okay… that’s fair enough… Hamston, why are you silent all this time and fidgeting all this time?

  • Hamston : fidgets more well… i already have someone i’m fond of too, although i haven’t made up my mind on her. so i haven’t introduced her to you all

  • Blake : that’s understanda… wait. a FEMALE engineer replacing you???

  • Hamston : as i said, replacing is a strong word. i don’t know yet. Grudsen, why have you gone silent now?

  • Grudsen : i never thought about this and i haven’t looked for anyone yet. so i’m quite behind.

  • Blake : hahaha, well we all need to realise our age

July 1982


# 9th of July 1982
Just 3 days after the announcement of the extremely anticipated Grehet's first flagship halo 
car, the Grehet Supremacy. it is now clear, by 19:42 on the 8th of July 1982, Grehet's 
chief engineer of more than 4 decades, Rabion Hamston, has been declared deceased. 
no details about the cause of death has been revealed so far none of the other Executives 
has given any response to the situation so far including the rumoured to be successor of both
the Chief engineer position, Sabrina Yohannsen Homitel and the successor of the CEO's
position, Matthew Jullian. so far....... continues on page 24
  • on the meeting room the next day

  • Matthew : these fucking insensitive bastards. we just lost one of our key members, don’t they think we need to sort out ourselves too? they

  • Grudsen : SHUT THE FUCK UP WITH YOUR ABHORRENT MOUTH! YOU FUCKING THINK SAYING THIS IS GOING TO MAKE OUR POSITION ANY BETTER?

Blake pulls out a gun from his bag and points it on to the thickest wall on the room that he knows of and released a fire. then sets it down on the table and stare at both Grudsen and Matthew

  • Blake : SIT. DOWN.

Sabrina who was trying to stealthily eat the peanuts on the table all the time this is happening sets the peanut she grabbed back onto the bowl and then fixed her seating position

  • Blake : none of your actions are helping anyone right now. and we also need to keep the weeping to when we’re off work hours. right now, i had wanted to do a meeting, but as it is, it seems that our emotion will get to the best of us sobs. so. for today, i’ll be deciding everything. Sabrina, you’ll be appointed the temporary head of the engineering department as soon as possible, sobsahem Jullian, you’ll be effectively replacing me starting from next week, and Grudsen, we need to hold a press conference within this week, we’ll deal with the paperwork later, and the details tomorrow. that’s it for today as we need time to sort ourselves out, i’ll cancel the meeting today, and we’ll meet up again tomorrow. ahem. okay, go home people, or go somewhere that will make you feel better and get you prepared for tomorrow.

everyone goes out of the meeting room silently

Blake : Grudsen.
Grudsen : yes?
Blake : come one, Hamston’s house. we need to pay them a visit and help them with the funeral.
