Hello 86 Lovers!
Ah August 6th: 8/6 day. A day dedicated to those whom love one of the most classical and influential chassis. The chassis that has helped shape the JDM car culture over many many years. The Toyota Corolla AE86! And here at B&E we are heavily influenced by Japanese car culture and style so we just couldn’t miss the event dedicated to this chassis!
Southern California is home to the biggest 86 event held in North America: 86FEST. This year 86FEST was celebrating its 5th anniversary! And what a show it was indeed. So many great cars and so many friendly people came out to Auto Club Speedway where the event was held.
We were extremely excited to show up and snap some great quality content of quality builds. The old and the new. The original AE86s and the new FRS and BRZ cars. The passion in builds was seen in the cars as well as the smiles of the owners.
With that said, please enjoy the following pictures we took 🙂
So many Levins and Truenos
And of course a wide variety of FRSs and BRZs
We were so eager to look inside the 86s and see their nostalgic interior and some in near perfect conditions
Some owners kept their engine bay simple and clean, while other when all out
Toyota with a S2000 engine and that VTEC power
What a monster!
Probably our favorite hatch there
We loved visiting the 86FEST event. So many good cars, people, and vibes.
Can’t wait for the next one!
