CWMC HQ, Ardrossan, Ab: All available agents were summoned to a last-minute lunch meeting at HQ Friday to contemplate the financial holocaust inflicted on the Domestic Car Division by Agent 406 and his 1968 Acadian.
The Accounting for Things Division compiled a short list of projects with similar budgets for comparison; an excerpt follows:
- The Euro Fighter
- NASA Manned Mars Expedition
- High-speed Train Across Siberia
- Star Wars 4, 5 & 6
- the 2011 Formula 1 Season
- Weed for the Cheech & Chong Reunion Tour
The President stared blankly at the tally for several minutes and slowly took a few tidy sips from his glass of "water" before asking if there was any particular reason 406 needed to be able to tap close to 1000 hp in his agency cruiser. "Operation Granny Sled was conceived as a low-key bench-seat restoration, and thats what it is, until you start the engine" said 406 in his defence, "I admit the spending got a little out of hand on some of the reciprocating bits..."
The President returned from a ride in the 406 Acadian and would like to express his full and unambiguous support for completely insane engines in all agency units.
