The successful Fast and Furious American actor Paul William Walker IV died on November 30, 2013 together with friend Roger Rodas, who was also his financial advisor and CEO of Always Evolving, a Valencia high-end vehicle performance shop co-owned by Walker.
Walker and Rodas, 38, who came out of an event for Walker’s charity Reach Out Worldwide took the latter’s red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT out for a spin and unfortunately both died in a car crash and subsequent fire. With investigation settling on speed as the sole cause of the crash – with Rodas believed to have pushed the car between 80 miles per hour (130 km/h) and 93 miles per hour (150 km/h), in a 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) speed zone, all that remains now is for fans and family to come to terms with the tragedy.
It appears that the latter still has some trouble doing so, with Paul Walker III, father of the deceased actor, claiming that Rodas’ family is currently holding on to $1.8 million worth of exotic cars. According to legal papers filed by Walker III, the Rodas estate has now possession over numerous vehicles that were fully or partially owned by Paul Walker. It is believed that many of the cars being fought over belong to AE Performance, co-owned by Walker and Rodas, but as the claim has been rejected it looks like things are gearing up for court action.
