It's been a couple of weeks since the now world famous car crash that claimed the lives of Paul Walker and Roger Rodas.
Though it seems many questions remain unanswered, we do know a couple of things:
1) These guys were great guys and they loved their charitable organizations. Nothing wrong with that.
2) Both enthusiasts really were "car guys." Not only did they appreciate product, they also loved driving them on/off track and building a massive collection.
It's a shame they had to go as they did but we're all waiting for our ticket to get punched. Now, onto the lads' collection.
Friend of AutoSpies.com, Matt Farah — of /Drive and The Smoking Tire — had the chance to poke around Always Evolving Performance's auto collection. Though the video posted last October and Farah's team left out the details of who actually owned the collection, TST recently came clean about the owners — Walker and Rodas.
If you're a fan of Fox body Ford Mustangs, Saleen, BMW M3 (E36) Lightweights, then you're going to love this. Hell, if you just appreciate anything with four wheels, you'll love this.
That said, I'll let you check out the clip embedded below.
Though we originally respected their privacy when they asked not to say who owned the cars, as we filmed this over a year ago, it makes no sense now not to say the cars all belonged to Paul Walker and Roger Rodas, two good friends of The Smoking Tire who tragically lost their lives on 11/30/13, and the world is officially a worse off place without them. Paul and Roger will be dearly missed by everyone who ever got to see their smiles, exchange words, or spend time with them at the track. RIP Roger and Paul.
- The Saleen SA-10 is not powered by a 351 Windsor, it's a Supercharged 5.0L.
- We apologize for the audio glitches at the end of the video, our microphone battery was dying and we did not bring headphones to monitor it.
