A Sad Day

I don’t think there’s many out there who would disagree that the loss of Paul Walker has been a huge hit to the automotive community. We all loved to rag on the corny and technologically misguided quotes of the original F&F movie, but still I don’t think there’s a movie that has had as much impact on the auto community as the original F&F. The flick kind of captured the community spirit and oft-ridiculousness of the car scene in general in a way that relateable to most. Even more importantly, Paul Walker was a true enthusiast, owning an R34 GT-R among a collection of other cars that only an enthusiast could love, and participating in track day events with some regularity. We lost one of our own on Sunday. RIP
