Paul Walker collection heads to auction

Just three of the wonderful cars that will seek new homes this coming January.

The late Paul Walker, best known as Brian O'Conner from the Fast and the Furious film series, wasn't only an auto enthusiast in the movies. He was a true gearhead, evidenced by his immense collection of wonderful cars.

Now, years after his passing, a part of his collection is looking for a new home. Auction house Barrett-Jackson announced Tuesday it has consigned part of the late actor's car collection.
