By now most of you have heard about Paul Walker's unfortunate death on November 30, 2013. Most people have been sharing compassion for his life and passion for the automotive industry. Being a star of the Fast and Furious franchise of movies, Paul fueled the aftermarket automotive industry and brought it to new generations.
We have all made fun of the franchise not being "authentic" or "realistic" but what movie is? When was the last time you watched Finding Nemo and said, "that's exactly what it's like under the ocean"? The truth is that a lot of younger generations saw that movie and it sparked a fire inside them. While it may not be an accurate portrayal of street racing, it did help the industry grow, and that is what matters.
Without movies like F&F, we might not even have an aftermarket automotive industry. So it goes without saying that the loss of Paul Walker not only affected fans of the franchise, but his death rocked the whole automotive industry.
