Who Stole Paul Walker’s Car Collection?

Paul Walker lived his life just like he lived in the movies: Fast and Furious. His car collection demonstrates that. Now, someone has taken some of  those cars.

The man that Paul Walker entrusted his assembly of autos to, Richard Taylor, is purported to have relieved Paul’s estate of more than 30 cars without their consent. That means he stole them from the warehouse.

He and his accomplices removed them from the collection within hours of the crash on Nov. 30, 2013 in what seems to be an incredibly ballsy move. The first thing he did after hearing his boss had died was to steal his cars.

The estate claims that Taylor has hidden or sold some of the cars already for his own personal gain. They include a 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, a 2008 BMW M3, and a 2006 Crown Vic among many others.

The second half of the report relates to the estate of the man who perished alongside Paul in the fiery high-speed crash. Paul’s estate claims Roger Rodas’ estate has in 17 cars in their possession that belong to them including a 2010 Audi R8 and a 1969 Mustang. They either want the cars back or the equivalent cash value.

Determining cash value on any of Paul Walker’s personal cars will be nearly impossible simply because they were Paul’s cars. Associating a value on an intangible factor like the previous ownership will prove to be quite difficult.

The estate’s hope is that both lawsuits will be trials by jury. That doesn’t seem like it would be totally fair considering the notoriety of the accident.

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.
