The sale was part of a Barrett-Jackson sale in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the final sales added up to $2,333,450, according to CEO of Barrett-Jackson, Craig Jackson.
“Paul Walker has been compared to a modern-day Steve McQueen, who lived his passion for racing in every aspect of his life,” Jackson told The Hollywood Reporter. “[He] has inspired entire generations of car lovers. We worked closely with a close friend of Paul’s who helped care for Paul’s collection following his death; he was responsible for consigning and prepping the vehicles for the auction. Paul’s daughter, Meadow, kept a few vehicles she had a connection with.”
All proceeds from the auction will go into a trust for Walker’s daughter, Meadow Rain Walker, 21. –THE MALAYA POST
