White is fine - Photos look good & sponsors are visable.
1986 - 89 ?

I dont think any of those Golf Rally cars will still be around. The Rallye had European plates on it. It would be good to run the plates on the 2 other cars pictured above.

Back in the late 80's early 90's all overseas competitor's were required to register and WOF there cars before they could compete in Rally New Zealand, the cars would have left the contry straight after the event.

Remember Kenneth Ericsson driving for I think a 3 car team  in about 90-91
