cool improvised airplane, art by Lawson Wood

October 5th, 2017 by admin

Lawson Wood was born on 23 August 1878 in Highgate, London, the son of a landscape artist, and the grandson of an architectural artist. He studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, Heatherley’s School of Fine Art and Frank Calderon’s School of Animal Painting.

From the age of 24 he pursued a successful freelance career and was published in The Graphic, The Strand Magazine, Punch, The Illustrated London News, and Boys Own Paper. He illustrated a number of books including Louis Tracy’s The Invaders in 1901 for Pearson.

By 1906, he was recognized for his humorous style, especially for his depictions of stone-age humans and dinosaurs. His standing among artists was made obvious when he was chosen by art instructor Percy V. Bradshaw to launch The Art of the Illustrator

During World War I, Wood served as an officer in the Kite Balloon Wing of the Royal Flying Corps, and was responsible for spotting planes from a hot-air ballon. The duty was dangerous, and Wood was decorated by the French for his action over Vimy Ridge.

In 1934, he was awarded a fellowship of the Royal Zoological Society for his work with animals and his concerns about their welfare. He established his own sanctuary for aged creatures.

Grandma drove this GT 350 “until ’77, when it got kind of run down. She stuck it in the garage and said ‘I’ll work on it later.’ 28 years later: ‘You know that car that Grandma has in the garage?’ and the grandson’s like, ‘Oh, the one with all the cardboard boxes and carpet on it?’” That’s when the GT350 got a 2nd life and sympathetic exterior restoration

Kaiser Carabela hearses (thanks Steve!)

In the early fifties, the Argentine government sought out an American auto manufacturer to build and operate a plant in their country.

Kaiser Frazer responded to the incentives and built a plant there which saw it’s first car roll of the line in July of ‘58. They made Kaiser Manhattans, but renamed them “Carabelas”.

In anticipation of the unimproved roads upon which they would be driven, they came with beefier suspensions, sturdy leather upholstery and only came with manual transmissions.

They were only in production for four years, although they simultaneously manufactured Jeeps which continued to made there until ‘78.
