The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines ‘community’ as such: “A unified body of individuals: such as a group of people with a common characteristic or interest living together within a larger society.”

In a world where information is instantly available in the palm of your hands and we have cars that can drive themselves, most people would say an analogue vehicle has no place. Despite that, a subset of car enthusiasts soldier on, keeping cars which are nearing 40 years old not only running, but modifying and using them in anger. Rarely is this carried out in solidarity; the advent of the internet has allowed AE86 owners from just down the road and as far away as the other side of the world to keep in touch and truly embody the definition of community.

A little over a week ago, we published a call to arms; for AE86 owners everywhere to submit photos of their cars along with some basic information to celebrate 86 Day (8/6) 2022 and show just how widespread a following they have. The response was overwhelming to say the least.

Some owners provided a lot of information on their cars which was great, and we’ve included a few of those details where possible. I also thought it important to have Instagram handles listed as well, to allow both owners and enthusiasts the ability to follow and network with each other. Unfortunately, we also had quite a few submissions which for one reason or another did not meet the post specification guidelines, so that might explain why a car hasn’t been featured.

If you like this kind of post, let us know in the comments below. What other days that are unofficially celebrated for other manufacturers and models should we feature in the further? For now though, kick back and enjoy a plethora of AE86s from all over the planet…
