It’s been two years since the violent death of “Fast and Furious” star Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas.
Monday night, fans of his big screen series brought their four-wheeled loves to a rally in their honor at Autosports 209 in Stockton.
They shared tricks of the trade and a look back at some of Walker’s films as they remembered a man who inspired them.
Walker and Rodas were killed in Santa Clarita as the Porsche Carrera they were driving at more than 100 mph crashed into several trees and burst into flames.
“Having somebody iconic like that go away … it really strikes you. So we like to keep everything going in his memory ’cause he was such a car guy too, and we share the same passion and enthusiasm for cars that he did,” said Tim Wickham, shop manager of Autosports.
“It’s a nice car scene down here. There’s a lot of family oriented things. You come out here, you meet new people all the time and it has to do with Paul walker too which is obviously a huge car thing. We try and support where you can,” said Mathiaus Amos, who brought his souped-up Acura Integra up from Manteca.
Amos and others also marked the anniversary of Rodas and Walker’s deaths by signing their condolences on a huge card.
