strange stalling problem

Maybe someone can help out on this. A few weeks ago, I was in the middle of a
slow-speed left turn when my '81 Coupe stalled. The engine just died. I towed
it to my favorite German car mechanic who tried everything to get it started to
no avail. By the way, no lights (ignition, etc) would light on the dash.
Anyway, the mechanic finally ran a jumper between the battery and the coil (the
post marked 15), and the car started and has been fine since.

Until today! The car was at my mechanics getting some unrelated work done. He
took it for a test drive and, lo and behold, the engined died in the middle of
a left turn. He got it started by the method described above.

Anyone have any thougts on this?
