I should add that Larry was NOT ejected from the Jeep!  He and Linda stayed inside!

There was an accident last month on Pirate 4x4 where a member also died as a result of sliding off the road while not wearing a belt.

Sad to see this happen to anyone, and a sad reminder to all of us.

Rest In Peace Mr Mitchell.

Very SAD day in AMC world, Larry gave so much to the sport. I had several dealing with him over the many years, he was a great guy and always wanted the best for AMC members and their cars...

Rest in Peace Larry, sorry to hear you are gone.... Linda get well quick......

Sorry to hear of his passing in such a way. At least he was enjoying himslf at the time. Sorry for wife Linda's passing as well.
Larry had Great Knowledge of American Motors. It was a shame that he was so bitter and behaved in the way he did at least in the 90's, after that I didn't have anything to do with him. 
I do hope he rests in peace.

Wow, sorry to hear that both Larry and Linda have died. I know some people have issues with him, but he started the AMX club/hobby and put out a great newsletter for many years (although it wasn't much at the very end) when AMO was a joke (sorry, but it was in the 1980s) . Before the internet you could call him and he'd answer technical questions. I met Larry a few times over the years...

Love him or hate him Larry was one of a kind. It's a true shame that he disconnected himself from the AMC hobby in the last 10 years or so. So much AMC knowledge went to the grave with him. We should cherish Tom Benvie, Ross Peterson, Larry Daum, Pat Whiteside and those whose names I've lost from memory who are still with us that go back to the beginnings of the AMX and AMC hobby. Not many of us old timers left !

I do miss both of the Mitchell's!  Met them at the 1975 AMX/Nash meet in Kenosha. Was a member of the AMX Club from that point on! 
Larry did come to many of our Southern Nevada AMC meets held in early November.  He must have made the last seven or eight of them.

I'm thankful for the help that he provided to me.  I too recall calling and writing him pre-internet with questions and he was always willing to spend time talking with me.  His old AMX-tras were classic....I couldn't wait for them to show up in my mail box.
