A spokesman for the company refused to comment amid unsourced reports that Always Evolving would be closing soon.
Hybrid Haven is a Petaluma-based hybrid repair; Rodas was the CEO of the Valencia branch, located near Always Evolving. Representatives for Hybrid Haven would not comment on the status of either company.
Always Evolving last posted on their Facebook page on Dec. 1, thanking their fans for “your condolences and prayers while we mourn the loss of our loved ones.”
On their website, Always Evolving is described as “a performance shop with a passion for racing… We have become known for our passion filled full car builds ranging from race cars to Rolls Royces. Our car collection has become the heart of our newly found dealership of emerging collectables, exotics, American muscle, and specialty cars.”
The Hybrid Haven describes itself as “a full-service car repair facility that provides extended warranty repair,” according to the website. “We specialize in difficult mechanical and electrical failure, other facilities only guess at.”
Walker and Rodas died in a single-car crash that is still under investigation.
They were driving eastbound on Kelly Johnson Parkway, where Rodas lost control of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT and crashed it into a light pole.
The car caught fire and both were declared dead at the scene.
Walker had been in town to attend a charity event for his organization Reach Out WorldWide.
