###Somewhere in Detroit, Michigan October 2000:
BUSINESSMAN: Welcome, please sit. I have a, um client, that needs a fleet of specially built cars. They need to be freshly built for the new year That’s why I’ve brought you all here. A representative for my client will inform you on the rest of the details.
REP: Yeah, um ok. You know these cars must have 4 doors and 4 seats, cuz otherwise we can’t fit everyone in, ya know? And they need to be built well enough to survive winter here, ya know, cuz Detroit winters are harsh. These vehicles should be easy to drive, cuz we’ll be shooting the – urr, breeze, yeah, when we drive. That’s very important. Oh, it’s gotta be prestigious… You know? Lots of chrome, big rims, the whole lot. We also gotta have a practical vehicle that can fit our guns, dru-- err, equipment you know? These vehicles must also have enough power to get away fro-- er, for evasive maneuvers. You know how dangerous the streets of Detroit are?
REP: Oh, and the engine. Its gotta run on moonsh-- Oil, vegetable oils. We do lotsa cookin, and it should run on our vegetable oil, and be efficient. Our mechanic has more:
MECH: Ok, the engine should be very efficient on it’s own, as it will be used to power their… Camping stuff. The engine will be used as a generator at times. And yes, it should run on whatever-the-hell type oil we have available. I’d personally like to see an American Style V8, but the choice is yours.
BUSINESSMAN: So there’s the requirements. My client has a budget of 250K, BUT… You need to supply at least 3 cars. They will take up to 12. And each car should have a retail markup of +50%. My client doesn’t want sloppy work.

VMO’s stuff is prohibited (still too much performance hit)
