 Yes, and I kind of remember some sort of conflict with someone just
before he left.  He took the Corvair, which was his wife's car, and
left his Rolls at the party.  The pictures of the car showed high
speed severe damage and it hit on a front corner ... not characteristic 
of an over-steer accident.

Speaking of over-steer ... in the early years (since 1964) I have driven
many many Corvairs many many miles and have never experienced one truly
over-steering.  My experience is they under-steer much less than front 
engine cars; that is to say they are much closer to neutral steering.
