    What was the story on Gene Curtis? I remember something about him going back to the Scarab cars, or something like that.

    You were there when a group of us in car design would regularly come to the Gower garage during lunch from Art Center when it was still on 3rd St.

    I got stiffed for $5,000 also; deposit on new 348. Maybe just as well, as the new car turned out to be somewhat unloved.

    While I was there I remember Gene getting visitors yes but, I never found out what it was about, he was always way too calm !!,... he used to talk a lot with a mechanic/close friend he brought in to work there, I can't recall his name, he had been a motorcycle motor cross champion,... wow! it feels like just yesterday !
