The Muntz Jet
Most of us are pretty familiar with Frank Kurtis, his accomplishments in racing, and his early sports car efforts. He was an innovator during a time of extreme innovation and experimentation. One of those experiments produced the Muntz Jet – America’s first serious attempt at a real sports car.
That side of the story is pretty well known, but I had never really sat down and read the money side – the side that Earl “Mad Man” Muntz made happen. If you haven’t either, check it out. It’s worth the read.
