Although the above video is about a year old, The Smoking Tire has revealed that the owners of the “Amazing Car Collection at AE Performance” were none other than the late Paul Walker and Roger Rodas. The video’s description has been updated with a brief message:
Though we originally respected their privacy when they asked not to say who owned the cars, as we filmed this over a year ago, it makes no sense now not to say the cars all belonged to Paul Walker and Roger Rodas, two good friends of The Smoking Tire who tragically lost their lives on 11/30/13, and the world is officially a worse off place without them. Paul and Roger will be dearly missed by everyone who ever got to see their smiles, exchange words, or spend time with them at the track. RIP Roger and Paul.
If you haven’t already seen it, the impressive car collection includes a variety of Saleen Mustangs, some very rare German sports cars, and surprisingly few Japanese cars.
