I think I see this dude posting all over FB. I'm all for someone doing a little hustle on the side for some extra cash, or liquidating old un-used stuff, but this guy is on a whole new level. Like that RHD. Its a f*cking complete car. Why is he parting that thing out?


I had a conversation with a more senior local owner and we talked about how because this community is so niche and close knit, this is totally the wrong scene to chop and flip, ect all that type of stuff.

But as these cars age and prices for everything (especially the cars themselves) go up, a lot people get weeded out and those not doing it for the culture/community get shunned.

On a lighter side of things, I found out that there is an extension for Chrome that fixes the photobucket link errors. Its called Photobucket hotlink fix and it works great.

This is amazing BTW LOL! Great find.

Anyways, I’ve been lurking through this thread and probably can’t add much of what hasn’t already been said. I’m on my 4th AE86 and I’m older now (33) so I finally have a little money to do it right, but the community has changed quite a bit. In some ways its great because I know (for the most part), that the people whom are here, are diehard. As annoying as it can be sometimes, Facebook has been a fantastic place for parts.

Just happy to be here all. I’m headed to 86 Fest in July (without my car :( because it’s too far to drive, but stoked to meet some of you all there.

all these replies.
I know the truth, but for you'd have to go through what I went through to understand. By then you would prolly kill yourself.

The internet, Greed power stupidity.
i'll just say this, most of the folks back in the day they were into AE86s but not as the people still around. You live, grow up and grow out but if you are passionate the ae86 won't ever leave you even if club4ag dies. Fedbook will always be bigger than anything.. I mean facebook.
