   The guys have all given you good advice on things to check of an electrical
nature.  Your last comment 'I smell gas' may be the clue to your problem.  I'm 
an expert on webers ( heck, I've never even worked on one), but for the 
ignition to
work you have to have a spark at the right time, and the proper amount of gas 
with air.  If you're smelling gas, and the car 'suddenly stopped starting', I 
you may have an overly rich mixture ( like real rich..).  Check for things like
stuck float valves and such if all else fails.  I wouldn't be the first time a 
wouldn't start because it was drowning.
