    So I work in Santa Clarita at an automotive performance shop and a good customer just came from Paul's shop, AE (Always Evolving) where they were having a car show. It seems Paul went for a ride in a guys Porsche and they ended up around a phone pole, the car burst onto flames and rumour has it Paul is dead. I hope he got it wrong but he insists it was Paul. I'm reluctant to post this being just hearsay, but the guy who informed us is a wealthy car enthusiast that just pulled up in his Maserati and nothing to gain from a lie, and has video on his phone of the burning car. If it does turn out to be true, damn... RIP Paul.

    Edit: confirmed:(

    Link, not yet, this happened less than a half an hour ago, about 2 miles from here. And from other witnesses his partner in AE, Roger was the one driving, also passed. Stay tuned to the news tonight, I've heard from 3 other people so I think this might have merit.

    The fact this was just hoaxed makes it even harder to believe.

    Trust me I know about the hoax too and that was the first thing I said to the guy who told us, then he showed me the video of the burning car... Really hope I look like a fool and this is wrong because although I wouldn't say I'm friends with Paul we have had a few conversations about cars, really cool guy.

    Kinda this. First place I checked, because as garbage as the site is they know about death faster than any website I know.

    ok first of all I called the local news (I say local because I am in Santa Clarita /Palmdale too)and the death hoax thing was posted today about the same time you posted its a hoax and if your "friends" told you they saw this they are lying the death hoax thing was the same thing you said an accident in a burning car type thing

    I Googled and now even US Weekly and MSN are reporting it. They're still citing TMZ as their source, but I'd think MSN and US Weekly would verify before proceeding. So far, it looks like this might be legit, sadly. :(
