For some the love for the AE86 goes beyond the tofu-delivery vehicle it portrayed in Initial D. This car may be underpowered with dated body styling but it is hugely popular and engrained in the tuner culture. These thirty year old cars aren't cheap either. A quick visit to Club4ag.com revealed that an AE86 in decent condition can still run up to 5k. In rare instances you'll find an AE86 that completely changes the game. Some notable examples would include Keiichi Tscuhiya's AE86 hatch, Katsuhiro Ueo's D1 spec AE86, and from the U.S. show circuit Mickey Andrade's AE86 coupe and especially the Bowls AE86.

This video was made by Bowls, a Los Angeles men's clothing store, that features its very own panda themed AE86. The J-Blood aero and the TE37V wheels are only a few of the dope parts installed. Watch as this amazing car rolls the streets of Los Angeles only to encounter it's modern counterpart the Scion FR-S driven by Formula D driver Ken Gushi. Other cameo appearances include Super Street Editor Jonathan Wong and Ms. Super Street 2013 Sandra Wong.

Driven by the fascination of its rear-wheel drive layout and light weight chassis, the AE86 will continue to be an icon in automotive history. Whether it's a restored model, a race-ready vehicle, or anything in between the spectrum the AE86 will always have a place in our hearts. Long live the 86.
