Museum Features Paul Walker Memorial

Dec 6, 2013

Hot Rod City Las Vegas created a memorial display to pay tribute to the late Paul Walker, star of “The Fast and the Furious” film franchise who died recently.

The display included two import tuner stunt cars-both of which, ironically, crashed and burned onscreen, according to Hot Rod City Las Vegas. The lime green 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse and the red 1993 Mazda RX-7 both appeared in “The Fast and the Furious,” the first film of the franchise.

Walker, who played undercover police officer turned FBI agent Brian O’Connor in the films, was killed Nov. 30 in a single-car crash in Santa Clarita, Calif., along with Roger Rodas, Walker’s partner in his charity, Reach Out Worldwide.

Hot Rod City Las Vegas also planned to waive its $15 entry fee Dec. 6-7, to allow fans of Walker to see the display and contribute items, if desired.

“The Fast and the Furious” tuner stunt cars are among the 60 cars and 30 motor scooters at Hot Rod City from The Dezer Collection, which boasts a total of 1,800 vehicles, including a James Bond movie car collection valued at $15 million, according to Hot Rod City Las Vegas.
