LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Dec 4, 2013) - Hot Rod City Las Vegas (www.hotrodcitylasvegas.com) pays tribute to the late Paul Walker, star of the massively popular "Fast & Furious" film franchise, with a memorial display featuring two import tuner stunt cars that were featured in one of the films -- both of which, ironically, crashed and burned onscreen.
The world famous lime green 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse and the red 1993 Mazda RX-7 both appeared in "The Fast and the Furious," the first film of the franchise.
Walker, who played undercover police officer turned FBI agent Brian O'Connor in the F&F films, was killed November 30 in a single car crash in Santa Clarita, California along with his friend Roger Rodas, partner in Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide.
On Thursday and Friday, December 6-7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Hot Rod City will waive the $15 entry fee for Walker fans wishing to see the display or contribute items to it.
