Larry Clain B/Motion collector dies/cars STOLEN
 
I need to start by saying we have all lost a great friend in the supercar world.. Larry Clain (pantera) died on May 18. He was a very close friend of mine and I'm sure many of you. Now comes more bad news.. I just got word his shop has been broken into since his death and all his cars he had stored in that shop have been stolen. Both 69/70 Baldwin/Motion Corvettes.. His race cars: 1969 SCCA B/P vette & Lola T-400 Can-Am Race car ( ex- Ongais F-5000 chassis)Now with Frissbee bodywork .. A Chaperell 5th wheel trailer with a 68 Vette body in it, and a couple other Corvettes (a 72 and a crashed 84).. all Stolen. Here is a link to the website he was making for his cars with pictures of several of them that have been stolen. http://home.swbell.net/vette-65/index.html If anyone is approached for any of these cars "for sale" please contact either myself directly or the Tulsa authorities. Keep an eye out for these cars!!
It's a sad day in the Supercar world.

dont know what to say Ed, I got to talk with Larry for a bit at SCR and you could tell he loved the hobby and the folks who were involved in it as well. Sorry and sad to hear of his passing.

The cars though important are nil next to his passing but I still hope they catch the ones who ripped them off.

Ed, I am so sorry to hear of this news. My heart sunk when I read your post.

What a royal shame. Words cannot describe what I feel right now.

Thieves are low lifes, thieve who steal from someone that has just died do not deserve a second chance!

I met Larry at SCR 3 years ago. A real class act and as Jeff said, someone with a passion for his cars and this hobby. Please let us know what happened to Larry. He posted on that very day and I had heard nothing bad since. I had no idea he might have even been sick. Good guy!

I will definitely keep my eyes and ears open. What a sick world we live in! https://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/no.gif

My God. https://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/imag...lins/frown.gif
I have been waiting on a reply from Larry on some emails we exchanged last month.
I was wondering what happened.
I knew right away who he was when we first met him with you too Ed @ the Dragstrip @ SCR7,pulling that trailer,and later needing help rolling his Motion GT Corvette off the trailer & into the Convention hall.
We shared a brief drink together later on.
What a Nice Man and Genuine Character he was.
My prayers are with his Family.
Rick

I feel like I have lost a friend too. I never met him in person. I sent him a headlite bezel for his Nova a while back that he was looking for. He emailed me a few times to say how much he appreciated it. He sure seemed like one of the good ones. Condolenses to his family and friends.
I would kill the thiefs with my bare hands if I could get away with it. Slowly.

Larry was a neat guy, to say the least. I remember him pushing his Motion GT into one of the SCRs, to share with all of us. It is a sad day on many levels.

At that same SCR event 3 years ago, Larry came up to Chad and my room after asking if we wanted to see some photos of his cars. About 2 hours later he left and it was well after midnight after about a 20 hour day. He never stopped talking and was filled with stories of his cars and his business. I only knew him a few short hours at that time and already knew he was passionate about this hobby. Very hard to believe.
