The death of actor Paul Walker came as a shock to many of his fans, in particular sports car enthusiasts. 

The actor rose to fame thanks to his role of a cop turned renegade in the popular film series, "The Fast and the Furious," but it wasn't just a role for Walker. He quickly took an interest in car culture and gained warm acceptance from southern California's racing community.
