In addition to the Fast & Furious tribute video, which has been seen more than 25 million times, fans around the country have been organizing car cruises as a memorial to Paul Walker and Roger Rodas. A video report on CNN says that more than 1,000 people showed up to the fatal crash site yesterday for a memorial, which included a car rally and show.

While the report indicates all sorts of cars and motorcycles showed up, a Toyota Supra similar to the one from final scenes of the original The Fast and The Furious cab be seen in the background of the video. One fan even constructed a huge posterboard for fans of Walker and Rodas to sign. Scroll down to watch the video, and check out some of the AP and Getty images from the memorial as well.

Fast & Furious 6 goes on sale tomorrow, and a Universal is giving a portion of the proceeds to Walker's charity, Reach Out WorldWide.

      That's a decent amount of people. This week there was a meet for Paul and Rogers' accident and there were over 3000 people there and close to 2000 people that went on a 20 mile cruise alone. This was all set up through facebook so it turned out pretty well. R.I.P

      Speed Kills, street racing kills also.

          *rollseyes* Perhaps they would if this were "foodblog" instead.

          OK, will autoblog write about everyone who died from that?

        Speed doesn't kill. Suddenly becoming stationary does. But they weren't street racing so you can drop it already. But by the sounds of I guess you will be one of the people from Westboro Baptist picketing his funeral.

      They look like liberals, perfect target for Walker's charity which has over 50% in admin fees.

        Do you probably think charities operate on zero operating costs or believe 100% of donations go directly to the cause.

      Whoa... okay America.. we need to dial it back a little bit. Definitely an overall great dude from what I've heard (which isn't saying much), but we're mourning a movie star. Eventually Brian O'Conner's son is going to grow up and will be a better faster driver in Fast 16. But he'll probably be doing in a Tesla... RIP

        He was a big time car guy and from all accounts a really nice guy who used his money to make other people's lives a little better as well. Yeah, some of the people are being a little nuts but it's not the worst thing in the world to feel sad that a good guy is gone.

      I just don't get it. You know, Nelson Mandela just died too. I bet if you asked the Paul Walker memorial goers who Nelson Mandela was, you'd just get back a blank stare. OK, sorry. I'm being mean. But damn, wasn't this two weeks ago? Does anyone REALLY like FNF that much? You'd think it was Ayrton Senna the way this keeps dragging on and on.

        Nelson passed away at the age of 95. Paul Walker was in the passenger seat of an accident that took his life at 40. They both died but one in a more tragic way than the other

          One spent a couple of decades unjustly imprisoned, led his country and to some extent the world, away from racism both institutionalized and not, and was a symbol of hope and strength worldwide. One was (by most accounts) a mediocre actor. By what measure are they equivalent?

          Who said they were equivalent? But between the two I wonder which death would get more people to read the article on a car news site? A car guy or a guy who had nothing to do with cars. I guess I should be up in arms that a website that talks about food doesn't have the latest video game reviews on it

        This gives you an idea of how popular movie stars are. But you also need to remember that the media only covers what it can and wants to so Nelson Mandela probably actually had more people grieving his death than you think. ...and also remember that this AUTOblog
