Tribute to Paul Walker Meet & Cruise

When news of Paul Walker’s tragic death in a car accident surfaced the first reaction was disbelief. Many fans, myself included, thought that the news was just one of many recent hoaxes.  Sadly, in the late hours of November 30th 2013 details unfolded and it was confirmed that the automotive community had lost not one but two of its own – Roger Rodas, a close friend of Paul Walker’s had also died in the crash. It didn’t take long for fans across the world to pay tribute. West Coast Car Events in conjunction with a local car dealership Autoform Performance Inc. decided to host a meet and cruise in their memory and the fans came out in droves.

Paul was best known for his work behind the camera but he also reached out to those less fortunate. Donations from those attending and proceeds raised from sticker sales were collected to contribute to the Red Cross’ relief efforts in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan.

    great cars! to bad most really low cars are on airride..

    I would like it more on coilovers, with air cup suspension (www.stanceparts.com/air-cup-suspension.) With airride, you really suffer on handling, with air cup suspension absolutely not.. you just keep the ride quality of your coilovers!
