unfortunate news for sure. I thought I remember hearing he did not know how to drive stick prior to the first FF film but that could be totally wrong. the way he read his lines, 'motec systems exhaust" or something similar in the first film would support that but that may have been the way his lines were written. obviously he was more into cars later and apparently had a collection and was affiliated with a shop but hooning on the street in a CGT is retarded given its reputation for less than telepathic handling. he should be remembered for his extensive charity efforts, not the FF franchise that the media constantly highlights, completely disregarding his other work.

A) Have you seen something credible that suggests the car was going 120 MPH?

B) There has been some speculation that there was a mechanical failure on the vehicle (specifically, a power steering pump that spilled fluid and caused steering issues).

C) I have read that the car made multiple impacts with various trees and a light pole, not just the one tree near where it came to rest.

you know he was in other movies besides F&F right, and did other things besides acting in it? does anyone know that?

I will even quote him: I'm into being a dad, that's where my focus is most of the time. I'm an actor that's my job, but it's not my life. I have a lot of other interests too.

Paul Walker Bought Engagement Ring for Military Couple | TIME.com
Kyle Upham and his fianceť were browsing a jewelry store in Santa Barbara in 2004 — just before Kyle was deployed to Iraq for a second tour of duty — when a fellow shopper began to help them with their engagement ring purchase, CBS reports.

If you click the video you would see that it was put out in tribute by the F&F team. So yes I know he did other things, but that does not change he was most well known for F&F.

I clicked the "about truther.org" button to see if it was a satire or serious.










I'm still not sure, but I really hope it's satire.
