    Really? How into it was he? I doubt he ever built a motor in his life.

    um, are we really arguing about whether Paul Walker was into fast cars?

    He was into making movies. Bad ones at that. That don't make him a gear head. Find me a car that he actually turned wrenches on.

    I'm not into the movies today but he seem like a good guy this is a sad story.

    We recently watched three of his movies that just came out, one was fast and furious, one he was a Nazi in what seemed to low-budget film it was pretty good though, and lastly was one about Hurricane Katrina that was a terrible movie, these ones where they filmed the whole thing in one room.

    Sad story though I feel bad for his family

    i'm NOT a liberal!

    sounds like you mostly just want to argue. i'd rather talk about cool cars.

    What the hell does that have to do with anything? Did you build your own firearms? If not, then I suppose you should never post about firearms again, huh?

    check out these American supercars :

    10 exotic sports cars made in America - MSN Autos

    several of them i haven't even heard of. i like the two Shelby Mustangs; one it just $58,000, but the other is over $200k.

    Thought the thread was about Paul Walker and the way he died.
    I don't find Vipers or Porshes "cool". Cool is a 70 Chevelle SS LS6 4 speed car. Cool is a 57 Chevy 210 with a straight axle and a blower. Or perhaps a 540ci 69 Camaro Pro Streeter.
    Oh, and for the money you get to spend on a Viper SRT 10, I can build a car that will out run it then wait on it to catch up just so I can out brake it.

    It's just repeating view that because he built a crude 1960s tech bracket racer he somehow has brownie points about performance cars - and it's so much nonsense.

    Modern performance cars are technological wonders by comparison, given not only they have to meet DOT, EPA and all other standards, such as noise limitations, they also have to do it on pump unleaded gas, have to get fairly reasonable gas mileage, and have all the creature comforts too - from sound deadening to air conditioning, power steering to cruise control, very comfortable seats to killer stereo systems, navigation, and computer managed brakes, suspension, motor and transmission.

    There are people for which the Viper is their dream car. Just reprogramming them will take them to nearly 700 hp and 700 ft/lbs torque, toss a blower or turbos on one and those numbers shoot up towards 1000, plus there is all sorts of suspension, wheel/tire combos, brakes and other mods a person can do. Personally I'm not fond of the look of the Viper nor for 2 seaters, nor would want that much of a LOOK-AT-ME! car, but that is just personal preference. I certainly could enjoy driving one.

    Walker was very much personally into modern performance cars.
