Always Evolving, the car shop co-owned by Paul Walker and Roger Rodas, who both recently died in a car crash, is closing for good.
The shop was started after the pair met and Rodas helped Walker figure out that he could save a lot of money on racing by starting a shop. They met while racing; Walker, a star of the “Fast & Furious” film series, had a passion for racing.
But now, without the pair, the shop will be closing for good in the next few weeks, sources told TMZ.
The people who run the shop have already left and are looking for new jobs, the sources said. The shop is getting cleaned out and the cars will be sold.
Some of the employees wanted to keep the shop going, but it’s been deemed impossible without the financial support and leadership of Rodas and Walker, who died on November 30 in a car crash.
The shop hasn’t given updates on its website or social media accounts since December 1, when it said via Facebook and Twitter: “Thank you all for your condolences and prayers while we mourn the loss of our loved ones.”
The pair were also involved in Reach Out Worldwide, a charity that they founded.
