Following Paul Walker's death in November, the car shop in California co-owned by the late handsome actor and friend Roger Rodas, who also died in the tragic accident, is reportedly going to be closed down for good.

TMZ sources close to Rodas revealed that the car shop called "Always Evolving" is likely to shut down in the coming weeks. TMZ reported that most of the employees of the said car shop have already gone out and left the business or started looking for new work. Even though they wanted to stay and work for the shop, they figured it would not be possible to make it work without Walker and Rodas. The business establishment itself is being stripped and exhausted of all its resources. The cars are reportedly going to be put up for public sale.

Some pages of the Web site of "Always Evolving" were already inaccessible. Its official Facebook page, which has constantly been posting updates daily, has not been updated since Dec. 2.

Walker and Rodas were both car lovers. The two became friends when Walker saw Rodas taking a Porsche GT3 he had previously owned out for a drive. Rodas, who was also a wealth adviser, helped Walker put up the shop in California and established his Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW) foundation. They attended an event for ROWW on the same day that they were killed in the fiery car crash.

Both men were already laid down to rest, but the investigation why a single-car collision took place is still ongoing.

According to the New York Daily News, the investigators have found all the three black boxes from the Porsche GT Carrera in which Walker and Rodas died. It is possible to still work out and recover the date from the black boxes. The speed that the car was driving can possibly be known through one module. The other two black boxes should be able to reveal data on the throttle as well as the amount of gas flowing into the car engine.
