Its fact that these cars shown in the article are not pauls private cars. Why should somebody show pauls car collection? He also doesn't have a car lift. The pictures were taken at always evolving performance and the cars are from the customers of the shop. except the red carrera GT which belongs to his friend roger rodas. The only car I know from is a Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec II. But its not allowed to drive this car legally on the street in the USA. As far as I know owners of Nissan Skylines got a letter from the US government. They wrote that they have to export the car or they will be seized. I dont know if they do exceptions with famous owners.

Had no idea about his charity activities or his career prior to the fast and furious franchise untill this tragic event. Seems so curely ironic the circumstances in wich he died.

The world had lost a truly iconic citizen. RIP

I wonder what they will do with FF7 now? Apparently most of his scenes have been shot so keen to see how they handle it..

R.I.P to Paul Walker and Roger Rodas, thoughts go out to their families and friends :(
As someone mentioned was a horrible weekend between that and the helicopter crash in Glasgow and the train crash in New York as well, bad times :((

:nice: the more the better
I refuse to join such "memorials" and thank god most of the guys I know stay home as well. Only crap I see on Facebook afterwards is a bunch of retards in shitty cars revving their engines 'as a tribute to Paul Walker' :angry2: And these fruitcakes actually think he would've been proud to see this if he was still alive...

I'd rather just deposit £20 in his charity project instead of blowing my money on fuel and attend one of those useless memorial meetings.

donate to his charity, actually help him achieve what he was trying to do - make a difference.

really ironic that he and driver died doing well over 100mph on public streets.
Goes against what he preached...

Take it to the track people. Dont be stupid and race on public streets which even trained professional drivers die from when things go seriously wrong. There are just to many variables like trees, curbs and other unknown obstacles. If it was a brake line failure and they were doing the speed limit they would have had a much higher chance of survival. 35-45mph. such a good person is no longer with us because the lack of self discipline by the driver.

Tracks are much more safe...
