I am sure that many of you out there are donating what you can to your local bail fund, if not marching in the streets, if not organizing in your community for police reform. But while you’re at it, here is an excellent zine of AE86 Toyota Corollas, all of the proceeds of which go to Black Lives Matter.

This is the work of friend of Jalopnik Eric Teti, an NYC-based car photographer who has shot some of our events in the past. I know him from seeing him shooting at Club Loose drift events down at Englishtown. That and I’m an AE86 nerd and, well, you’ve seen his AE86 journey here on the site before.

I myself wish that I could shoot as well as Eric does, and wish that I had an AE86 half as nice as his, and so on and so forth.

He’s passionate about these cars, and has shot some of the best stuff I’ve seen of them Stateside and in Japan. here’s his description of the zine:

A 36 page collection of my AE86 photos from around the world. I’ve been extremely lucky to have some of the coolest car adventures ever, and I’m excited to share them with you all!

ALL PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED TO BLACK LIVES MATTER

SHIPPING FROM NYC - ITEM SHIPMENT WILL BE SLIGHTLY DELAYED DUE TO COVID-19

I reached out to Eric and he emailed back to include the foreword of the zine:

7600+ is a collection of my favorite 86 days. Sometimes we spent them staring at icons, and others we spent in the back yard. I loved them all the same.

DISCUSSION

I’ma go out on a limb here and predict you’re going to get lots of petulant, pissy pushback for this post from Jalops who think you shouldn’t be political.

But as an American, a lifelong Jalop, a city-dweller (NYC) and a white guy who is sick of how white supremacy, intolerance and basic white indifference to the humanity and experience of POC is destroying the beauty and tranquility of our beloved and diverse nation, I want to thank you for using this pulpit to Stand Up for BLM.

This took some balls, you are fine journalists, and more importantly, you are excellent Americans.
