For those of you in solo-land who knew Curt Stanley......we just received a phone call from his father with the news that Curt passed away during his recovery from a surgery. A few years ago, Curt sold his house and all his weird little cars to make a move to Atlanta, Georgia.

Curt was a special car guy and the only one we knew who painted a car with spray cans of Krylon. A Corvair.

At one time - the 70's or 80's, I've forgotten exactly when -- he owned a BMW Isetta 300 with a 750 Honda motorcycle engine and brought it to an autocross on Firebird's Skid Pad #4. Since I, too, am the owner of an Isetta 300 (but with an Isetta one-cylinder BMW engine and not a Honda motorcycle engine), I was invited to be his passenger during his run. It was a bunch of laughs, until the chain broke and we skidded to a stop on course. Of course, with Curt, it was still a bunch of laughs after the chain broke. I'm sure God broke the mold when Curt appeared on earth to preserve his type forever.
