Just got home half an hour ago, with rumours spreading throughout the meet, then throughout the lunch table as we searched on our phones on news regarding Paul Walker’s status. Google came up with many reports of his death, and just as many results claiming it as a hoax.
Home now and it’s been confirmed.
I know more than one of my fellow Skylines Australia members are bringing their GTR’s out of the garage and taking them out in his honour this afternoon.
Fan of the movies or not, you can’t ignore the impact Paul and the rest of the gang had on our scene. Once more, he was not just an actor playing the role. He himself was a passionate car enthusiast. He was one of us.
My thoughts are with his family, his daughter, and all of those whose lives he touched (which, lets be honest, was many of us) and are now unfortunately left behind.
Farewell Paul Walker. Forever racing through our hearts.
