George Halas was a soldier, baseball and football player, and football coach. He was mostly known as the long time coach and owner of the Chicago Bears that would land him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Halas was born in 1895 in Chicago, Il. He would work for
Western Electric in 1915 when he bought a ticket for
the famous SS Eastland. Halas was running late and missed the boat. This would be a good thing for Halas but a tragedy for the Chicago area. The SS Eastland was a large tour ship that went around Lake Michigan. When the boat started to set sail, they forgot to untie the boat and it got wrapped up in the ropes which would cause the boat to tip over. 844 passangers and crew members were killed and Halas missed certain death.
Halas would leave Chicago after that and end up in Champaign, Il where he would become a student at the University of Illinois. While there, Halas played on the basketball, baseball, and the football team. It was on the football field that Halas shined. He would help the Illinois football team win the 1918 Big 10 Championship. In 1918, Halas signed up for the Navy so he could fight during WWI but was used
as an ensign and being the end of the war, he never saw action. He returned back to college wheere he would lead the University of Illinois to the 1919 Rose Bowl championship. During that game, Halas scored 2 touchdowns including a 77 yard touchdon interception that would earn him MVP of the game.
After college, Halas would persue a career in baseball instead of football. He would be drafter by the NY Yankees in 1919. After a short time in the minor leagues, Halas would make his major league debut that same year playing in the outfield but for only 12 games. Halas retired from baseball that year after a hip injury. Rumor has it that Halas left and Babe Ruth took his place but Sammy Vick was the regular starter over Halas so Ruth took Vicks place.
After he retired, Halas would except a job at A.E. Staley Company in Decatur, Il and play on the companies sponsered baseball and football team. It was 1920, and Halas showed that he still knew how to play football. Augustus Staley was the owner of the compnay and allowed Halas to coach the team and pick their colors. He chose orange and navy blue since those were the colors when he played at the University of Illinois. After a succesful year, Halas would represent the Decatur Stanleys, named after Augustus Stanley, at a meeting in Canton, Oh. The newly American Professional Football Association was formed an Decatur Stanleys were one of the first teams. In 1922, the American Professional Football Association changed their name to the National Football League, the NFL.
In the first year of the AFPC, the Decatur Stanleys would go 10-1-2 but only finish 2nd in the league. The team would take a financial loss and Augustus Stanley gave the team over to George Halas. In 1921, for their second year, Halas moved the team to Chicago and was allowed to play their home games at Wrigley Field which was home to the Chicago Cubs baseball team. Halas changed the name of the team to the Bears because the baseball team was the Cubs, and now the Chicago Bears were founded. Halas, as a player, coach, and owner would lead the Bears to their 1st NFL championship that same year. Halas, would also handle ticket sale
s and run day to day operation.
After 10 seasons, Halas called it quits. He was tired of having to run everything, plus playing and coaching was draining him. He retired as coach and player in 1930, but would still remain as the Owner of the Bears. Halas was selected to the NFL's all decade team of the 1920's.
Halas couyldnt keep off the sidelines and returned as coach in 1933, 3 years after retiring. Back as coach, Halas would draw up the T Formation offense that took them above everybodys running offense. It caused
for more fakes and throwing the ball more. This would help Chicago win their 2nd NFL Championship in 1940 and then again in 1941.
In 1942, Halas led the Bears to a recor of 5-0 and possibly a 3rd straight NFL Championship when Halas again returned to the Navy for WWII. This time Halas saw action serving from 1942-1945. The Bears would still play football during that time winning the Championship in 1943. Halas missed the game and returned to it after WWII to retake control of the team.
His first year back as coach, he lead the Bears to his 4th and their 5th NFL Championship. After the war, Halas did not have the same success as before. It would take 16 more seasons before Halas would lead them to their 6th Championship. Halas would retire from coaching in 1967 but remain as owner of the bears. He would win 318 games, lose 148 games, and have 32 tied games. He would win 6 NFL Chmpionship and lose 3 more. In 40 years on the sideline, Halas only had 6 losing seasons. Halas was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1963 when he was still coaching the Bears.

Nash Healey Le Mans - Gamberini/Nobili (I)
The Nash-Healey is a two-seat sports car that was produced for the American market between 1951 and 1954. Marketed by Nash-Kelvinator Corporation with a Nash Ambassador drivetrain and a European chassis and body, it served as a halo (or image) vehicle for the automaker to promote the sale
s of the other Nash models. It was "America's first post-war sports car", and the first introduced in the U.S. by a major automaker since the Great Depression. The Nash-Healey was the product of a partnership between Nash-Kelvinator Corporation and British automaker Donald Healey, as well as a later restyle by Pinin Farina and subassembly in Italy.
Donald Healey and Nash-Kelvinator CEO George W. Mason met on the Queen Elizabeth, an ocean liner going from the United States to Great Britain. Healey was returning to England after his attempt to purchase engines from Cadillac, but General Motors declined his idea. His idea was expand production of the Healey Silverstone that race car driver Briggs Cunningham had customized with Cadillac’s new 1949 overhead-valve V8 engine. Mason and Healey met over dinner and a production plan ensued during the remainder of the voyage. The two became friends because they were both interested in photography. Mason had a stereo (3-D) camera that intrigued Healey.
Nash Motors supplied the Donald Healey Motor Company with the powertrain components: the Ambassador’s inline six-cylinder OHV 234.8 cu in (3.8 L) engine and three-speed manual transmission with Borg-Warner overdrive, plus torque tube and differential. Healey fitted a lighter, higher-compression aluminum cylinder head (in place of the cast-iron stock item) with twin 1?” SU carburetors that were popular on British sports cars at the time. This increased power from the stock 112 hp (84 kW; 114 PS) version to 125 hp (93 kW; 127 PS). Compared to other contemporary British sports cars, the Nash-Healey's engine was long, heavy, and bulky yet Donald Healey's original plan was to use an even heavier Cadillac V8 engine. The Nash-Healey was designed an engine bay that allowed a few later owners to convert their cars to V8 power.
The chassis was a widened and reinforced Healey Silverstone box-section ladder-type steel frame. Independent front suspension, also Healey Silverstone, was bycoil springs, trailing link and sway bar. The rear suspension featured Nash's rear end and coil springs replaced the Silverstone’s leaf springs, while the beam axle was located by Panhard rod.
Healey designed the aluminum body, but it was outsourced. Panelcraft Sheet Metal of Birmingham fabricated the body. It incorporated a Nash grille, bumpers, and other trim. Healey was responsible for the car's final assembly.
The car had drum brakes all round. Wheels were steel, dressed up with full-diameter chrome hubcaps and 4-ply es 6.40 x 15 inch whitewall tires
. The interior featured luxurious leather upholstery, foam rubber cushions, adjustable steering wheel, and a cigarette lighter. Completed vehicles shipped to the United States for sale
through the Nash dealership network.
A prototype was exhibited at the Paris Motor Show in September 1950. The production model debuted at the February 1951 Chicago Auto Show. The only colors available were "Champagne Ivory" and "Sunset Maroon", and the suggested retail price (MSRP) of US$3,767 F.O.B. New York City proved uncompetitive.
