LOBSTERS ARE LIKE PEOPLE (Jun, 1952)
The Truman one is kinda cute and the De Gaulle one looks like it should be in the Dark Crystal.
LOBSTERS ARE LIKE PEOPLE
Jean Sulpice, Parisian restaurateur, believes that lobsters and people have similar features. These “portraits” seem to prove the artist’s contention.
With a few props (a cigar, glasses and hats) and his lobster shells, the Frenchman created these caricatures of two famous international figures.
ANYONE WHO HAS seen Paris knows about Place Pigalleâ€”and knows that almost anything can be found there. That is why it is no surprise to learn that in the city of artists, one Pigalle restaurateur is an artist who hangs his work from the ceiling. More surprising is his mediumâ€”lobster shells!

Fine wire holds the various parts of the figures together in their lifelike poses
Hanging from the ceiling in a somewhat frightening array are scores of examples of the artist’s work in a variety of subjects
Jet-Age Custom Car (Sep, 1954)
What this really reminds me of is the car from The Ambiguously Gay Duo
Jet-Age Custom Car
No flames spout from the tail pipes of a custom-built three-wheeled car, but that is about the only difference between it and a space ship! The engine is a 60-horsepower V8 mounted in the rear. A single front wheel is suspended on a motorcycle fork. The sheet-metal body is welded to the frame. Air scoops on each side of the body ventilate the engine. The 10 tail pipes permit the hot air from the engine to escape. The unusual car was built by Stanley M. Eakin of Grove City, Ohio. It took six years of his spare time. Top speed is about 90 miles per hour.

Looks like it would be a lot of fun to try getting into that.
New German Sports Car Called 125-Mile-an-Hour Speedster
A recent entry in the sports-car field is this Porsche racer from Germanyâ€”a more powerful and faster machine than the model previously offered by the same maker. Power has been boosted from 70 to 80 horsepower and maximum speed, it is reported, from about 110 to 125 miles an hour. Body design has been revamped, too, with the result that the new model has a body a few inches lower than its predecessor.
Lucky Kid’s Midget Tractor (Sep, 1949)
Lucky kid, I want a tractor too!
Our next award goes to a proud wife and mother, Mrs. S. C. Manila, of Boyceville. Wisconsin.

It stops traffic and all children just must touch it and ride in it. I am sure your readers will be interested. It is powered with a 2/3-hp. engine and will pull four coaster wagons carrying 12 children. Our boy in the snapshot is just four years old.”
