So sorry to hear about the passing of Larry. A car guy through and through. He will be sadly missed at future SCRs.

It took a lot of caoxing to get Larry to bring the un-restored Motion Vette to the SCR, as he was afraid it would not fit in. I kept assuring him folks would "dig it", which they did. One of the most talked about cars ever at a SCR.


And thanks for letting us know about the stolen cars, hopefully we can help find who did this terrible act.

My god! What terrible news. Not only that the hobby has lost him but some low lifes were waiting in the bushes to grab everything.

If I may ask, what were the circumstances of his death? I thought he was a healthy guy.

a black day for the hobby indeed.......

any pictures of his cars, etc would be very helpful so all of us can keep an eye out for anything that surfaces.

Damn, I just can't believe it......... There is no icon that can depict the low feeling I have..............

We all need to be on the lookout, these cars will have to surface sooner or later. Then we can help get them back where they belong.

Ed,

I am truly sorry to hear this.

I first met Larry at BJ2005. He was there with one of his buddies from Tulsa. We hung out for a while and then he went to talk to George (who had the gold Baldwin Motion Vette going across the block that year)

I met Larry again last year at SCR8. On Friday afternoon, he introduced me to Kim Howie and to Ray Morrison (As I didn't have a clue who anybody was) Ray, Larry and I talked for a few hours out in the parking lot until Charley Lillard came up and informed us that the Banquet was about to start! I had planned to go to the hotel and change into more appropriate clothing...but while talking to these two great guys...I lost all track of time. I was forced to wear the "Charley Lillard" shirt to the dinner...

Charley was even nice enough to give Ray, Larry and I a ride across the parking lot in his rental car (Charley didn't need to use his GPS that time. )

I will remember the enjoyment that I had talking to Larry and I will truly miss him. He was a genuine good guy...and I am honored for having known him.

Thanks for the memories

Rest in peace Larry

Very sad to hear of his passing.

Do you have a contact for the law enforcement agency handling the case? Based on the value of the vehicles stolen, this may be of interest to federal law enforcement as well.

I know the various automotive magazines would be interested in getting the word out. CNN and the New York Times both did articles just last week on the million dollar muscle cars out there. I think they would definitely want some info. Get me the contact info and I will pass it along. PM me if you like.

Good idea Steve! Let's get this information out ASAP!!

Ed, a number for the local Tulsa PD would be good, too (Like NJSteve suggested)
