AE86 World is a Worldwide Society and Culture for all things Hachi-Roku. With many great Websites and AE86 Clubs, we decided to create a Worldwide movement, branching out from Japan, to Europe, Australia, America and beyond. Running a successful Social Network Page, we have managed to get AE86 World Members from all over the world under one roof. It’s a place to Advertise , share your Photos, Events and Experiences but more so for AE86 related Clubs, Websites and Companies to get the networking exposure they deserve, for Free! Having Years of personal export experience, we can also offer those rare and hard to find Parts from Japan, as well as direct Worldwide followers to the right place and company, such as JDM Auction Watch, Impulse AE86, Tec-Art’s and more. The idea is for everyone in the AE86 World to be closer and help eachother! Our Goal is to see more and more AE86′s being recognised and enjoyed all around the world, and hopefully wearing AE86 World stickers! UNITE!
Just like to say a big Happy Christmas to all AE86irl members and fans, wherever in the world you may be… And all the best for 2014 and remember an old Toyota is for life, not just for Christmas
Well its that time of the year again … forget, presents, santa and the season of goodwill, its time pull your AE86 out of the shed one last time in 2013 for our annual Xmas meet in Tullow Co. Carlow, We haven’t had a meet in a while so we are going to go all out to make this our best one yet and send out 2013 with a bang.
And lets face it what could be better than a day of checking out some of Ireland’s and the world’s finest AE86′s to the backdrop of buring nangkangs! Followed by the usual mayhem at our after party in Carlow.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!

It was with great sadness that I learnt of the death of Sean Mc Menamin a prominent and valued member of our site after a battle with illness.
Sean (ae86_lad as he was known to most on here) was a member of AE86irl since 2007 and was one of the most honest, up front and passionate guys you were likely to meet. His contributions on here were always helpful and Sean could always be relied on to be quick witted!
His illness was not known to many on the site and it is only now that we can look back and realise the courage he must have shown through this difficult time. I know he did mention to me that cars and AE86′s were a welcome distraction for him during treatment and I’m glad that we as a group were able to help in some small way with that.
The last memory many of us will have is of Sean enjoying drifting his car at a trackday in Aghadowey just a few months ago and I think its a nice way to remember a friend who was a total AE86 fanatic.
On behalf of AE86irl.com and all it’s members I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Sean’s family and friends (many of whom who are also members.)
Here’s hoping there are lots of Nangkangs for you to burn up there….
