My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Mr. Walker. He's best known for his role in the fast and the furious series but has also played in other movies as well.

Yes, it's sad that he passed so young..  But..

 

 

Funny thing that when a celebrity or star dies it's news..  

 

One of our soldiers dies and it's just not worth the media attention..  :(

Yes sir.. No mention of the driver of the car either in anything that has been put in my face.  Yup.. so he made movies.. Why are they making a hero out of him. He liked to drive fast. made movies about fast cars.. and was even quated as saying something about dieing in a car he would be smiling or something like that..  Meh.. I feel for his family.. but as you said WNY..  Soldiers are dieing often and no mention of it.  Makes my heart heavy....

Little better story there.

 

Only 604 of those cars were sold in the US.  Porsche stopped selling them in the US because of "air bag regulations"

 

V10 612HP 6 speed manual.  That car would be a handful!  0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds.

 

Looking at pictures they were traveling at a very high rate of speed in a 45mph zone.  You can only tempt fate so many times.

Dude lived by the sword and died by the sword. I feel for his 15(?) year old daughter.
