Li Dongsheng had been relaxed at first. However, upon hearing this never-before-heard-of question, he became stunned for a moment. He covered the receiver and said a few words, then he continued, "Huang Xuan, when do you need the answer? The few of us need to discuss this." "Alright," Li Dongsheng hung up without saying much else. Despite this, Huang Xuan believed that the experts whom his mother sought were indeed experts. He had no other option. Rolin was definitely not going to be able to handle a job that required that much creativity unless he had information on it. He simply wasn't designed to "think". The morning brought with it clear, crisp air that covered half of Manhattan. Those who were looking forward to the improvement of the economy only saw the green of the trees. The morning dew settled on the traffic light at a cross junction, and the pedestrians were in as much of a hurry as they were three years ago, worry etched on their faces.
Edsel was troubled. After he had handed the briefcase to Huang Xuan, 20 strong men carefully brought the diagrams of the V8 downstairs. When all of the diagrams had been brought downstairs, Edsel expressed sincere gratitude. He shook Huang Xuan's hand firmly and said, "It has been pleasant doing business with you." This alone was worth more than $100,000. "Hmm?" Edsel and Brown, who had turned to leave, looked back at Huang Xuan. The latter thought that Huang Xuan wanted to go back on his word. He placed his hand on his waist. Huang Xuan spread his arms and tried to look friendly. He said, "Don't worry, I'm talking about another deal." "Of course," Huang Xuan answered, sticking his chin out. He continued, "They're beyond imagination," as he spoke, he opened the door to the room he had slept in the night before. The front-drive car was a new concept in the '30s. According to the experts, Citroen's Traction Avant was a pure invention. It had a front drive, a no-chassis structure, a torsion bar which achieved single-wheel lock, and a hydraulic brake system. Those technologies were way ahead of their time. Each one of them was worth at least USD$300,000. More importantly, it was highly challenging to combine all of those technologies into one car. The speed of advancement of mechanical technology in the 20th century was as high as the speed of advancement of electronic technology in the 21st century. That is, the speed was high to the heavens. It didn't matter that they were during the Great Depression in America and were faced with the mighty Ford and the merger-obsessed GM. The TA could certainly still take over the world with its top-notch design. At that moment, however, Edsel was purely astonished at the vast number of diagrams in the room. Out of an inexplicable trust, he stopped Kent and his subordinates. Turning to Huang Xuan, he said, "Can we look at them?" Huang Xuan smiled at him and answered, "You can ask others to come and take a look. I have no problems with that. The same rules apply; anyone can come in to see, but they are not to make copies or to take them away until I send a telegram to you. Understand?" He was looking at Hans as he finished. He laughed and turned around. To the confused Edsel and Edward, he said, "You can check those diagrams now. These are only half of the diagrams I have. If you want to get the other half, you'll have to pay me $300,000 this time. I'm going to New York soon, and I can't stay here for long. If you decide to pay, look for me in New York. I'm only going to be there for four days." "Thank you, Sir. You're indeed a generous person." They had earned USD$2,000 in 24 hours. In 1931, no less. Hans was clearly shaken. "No problem, Sir. I'll personally send you there." Hans understood what Huang Xuan meant. Although some of his men weren't too happy, they couldn't do much about it. After all, they couldn't ignore the client's requests. He accepted the cash from Huang Xuan and assured him, "Boss, don't you worry. The veteran bodyguards are the best people for this job." Hans lowered his voice and gave some instructions before he followed behind Huang Xuan.
