Ashlie details her late brother's love of driving

"He liked to go fast," she says. "As soon as I was old enough to hang on tight, I was on the back of his big wheel with him, going for the ride of my life."

Caleb says Paul used to say he wanted to become a park ranger.

"You know, make 28 grand a year and like, live in the wilderness," he said. "That's really what he wanted to do."

Tyrese Gibson, one of Paul's Fast & Furious co-stars, also makes an appearance.

"If you loved him the way we did, you would say, 'Well, why him and not us?'" he says.

I Am Paul Walker premieres on the Paramount Network on August 11 at 9/8c.
