This car will continue to be a driven to cars and coffee for it's once a month warm up cycle of 20 miles. It might as well be a tax donation to a museum.

There's a piece of history right there. I saw my first M1 on the streets of Munich in 1983 or so. Cool stuff.

I bought an M1 as an intermediary for $85k back around 1982 and sold it to its second owner for $95k a few days later after driving it 800 miles. Around 1995 the third owner's "people" contacted me to see if I'd put a value on it or buy it myself. At that point I offered $55k for it. You can follow market value in Gordon Medenica's M1 register and see that it took them nearly 20-years to get back to what they sold for new. And another 20 to get to where they are today. I loved that car. It fit me perfectly!

I believe that one was owned by Paul Walker. If that is the case, that would make sense why its price is skyrocketing

It then spent time as part of the AE Performance collection shared by Paul Walker and Roger Rodas in Valencia, California, before being acquired in 2014 by the current owner.
Wouldn't matter at all to me and not sure this would add a lot of value to the car. As time goes on will anyone really care about Paul Walker?

It certainly doesn't hurt. Posthumously it turns out he was a pretty swell guy. And you know that there were people, maybe unable to afford this car at this time, that did indeed spend time secretly wishing they could be him. They'll have money one day, a few of them lots of it.

Sure. As long as there are car guys and anyone that is a fan of the FF Franchise, his cars will be worth money

Agreed on him being a nice guy. I read that he was in a jewelry store and overheard a couple, future husband was an Iraq war vet and about to be delpolyed for a second tour, looking for an engagement ring but it was 9 grand. After hearing them say it was too expensive, he secretly paid for the ring. The store owner told the story after Walker passed...but that was a class act

Paul Walker like him or not, he will go down as a legend in the Holywood car world. Other legends in Holywood would be Steve McQueen or James Dean for the short time he was famous (probably the best drive of the four) or Paul Newman.

Steve McQueens cars still resonate today and he passed away 40 years ago.

That's a pretty callous thing to say.... Just because you have no interest in him doesn't mean he didn't do a LOT for the automotive scene(not talking F&F) and was a pretty good guy from what I've heard. He will be remembered for a long time, if not forever.
