In Memory of Paul Walker Car Meet

So there's a car meet this weekend in Santa Clarita, any of you planning on going? Looks like it's going to be pretty awesome with lots of celebs and cars from the Fast and Furious movies!

Speaking of Paul's brother, he was just featured recently on Jay Leno's Garage where they were promoting this meet.

That's where I found out about it. There's also this channel on youtube, Supercar Blonde in this video she test drives some cars from the latest movie, apparently she's going to be there.

As long as no one shows up in a Carrera GT, it'll be a hoot.

He was an enthusiast before the films, his grandfather raced cars back in the day for Ford supposedly.

he's not totally wrong though. Paul Walker was by all accounts a quality human being, but the kind of fawning hero worship he's inspired is straight up embarrassing

Yes maybe, I guess that's what you get when you're a good person and a pretty cool/respected guy that people like.

The people could be worshipping someone that's actually a detriment to society like a lot of celebs if that makes some of you feel better?

Oh, nooo you can't because Porsche doesn't put black boxes in its cars!

So sez its engineers, anyway ...

(Background: I got into a largely semantic argument with a holier-than-thou chap on a Porsche forum about this that nearly got me banned from the forum ... a forum I'm now a moderator for. Howzat for poetic justice?
