As much as I didn't like the movie series, he seemed like a genuinely nice guy, an enthusiast.

This was all the talk at the bar last night. That's very poor.

I wonder what will happen with the next F and F movie. Were they not going to do one more, a finale?

F&F is a guilty pleasure of mine, and a bottomless pit of drinking games (every time they shift...), so I'm sad to hear this. With Rush falling flat as it did, it's up to F&F to carry the car movie torch.

I hope he rests in peace.

Not really surprising, but he was moving at over 100 mph.

I can hardly imagine that he would be sitting next to the driver shouting: Slow down ,Slow down...but I could be wrong of course.

The widow of the driver is now suing Porsche for apparent design flaws in the car that caused the Walker and Rodas to die. She also claims they were driving 60 mph instead of 100 mph as stated by the police. We live in strange times!

Not to be a cynic, but depending on whether the car has been modified it ought to be not Porche's fault. They can't possibly account for modifications.

In any case, you wonder why it took so long for them to figure out the evidence to sue.

A loss of life is a tragedy, but no lawsuit will bring back the dead.
