Happy Birthday Paul Walker!!!

We all remember him in FnF. One of the best looking actors and the most down to earth and chill person. If you are old enough to remember the 1st FnF movie you know this is what started the insane car modification scene. Supra,GTR, RX-7, S2000, Civic. The movie that made me inspired to JDM. The movie mainstreamed the car culture and tuning scene!



RIP

How about being old enough to have been IN the import modification scene long before the movie?

<----street racing since '93 y0! Deltaport anyone? Richmond Aircare anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

This movie did not "start" the car mod scene. It was already flourishing for people in the know. What it did do is bring it to the mainstream which, in my opinion, kinda fucked it up. Everyone and their mother thought that there were king of the streets and it brought a lot of douchebaggery and unnecessary attention to the scene. I miss when the scene was more underground, like how skating was in the 80's and early 90's.

Either way, Paul Walker was a true enthusiast whose knowledge grew as the movies progressed. A terrible tragedy and he was taken from us way too soon.
