The memory of fallen Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker lives on as fans, friends and car-lovers gathered in Santa Clarita, CA Sunday to pay homage. The memorial was planned via social networking and was originally scheduled for a noon start. But flowers, candles and tributes began to pile up as people arrived hours before hand. Authorities believe attendees numbered in the thousands. Keeping in line with the memory of Walker, many people arrived in muscle cars from across the globe, revved in a high RPM automotive choir of respect.  Walker died on Nov. 30, along with friend Roger Rodas, when the Porsche Carrera GT he was riding in crashed and burst into flames.
