Walt locks Tao in the basement and goes to the gang's house. They come outside and draw their guns, and Walt takes out a cigarette. When he reaches for his air cav lighter they shoot him multiple times and he falls down dead. The police arrest the gang while Tao and his sister look on. At the funeral, Father Janovich repeats what Walt said to him about being a 27 year old virgin, and that Walt always called it as he saw it. At the will reading, Walt leaves his house to the church and his Gran Torino to Tao. The final shot is of Tao driving down the coast while Clint Eastwood himself sings in the background.
