Anyone know whats the story with this car. Did McKinstry ever actually drive it or is it a fictional car. I found the pictures on a Japanese site, seems like a lot of effort for a car that never existed. I cant say Ive ever seen it before but I like it. Really hoping it competed ....

Open to correction but I don't ever recall Robbie having sat with Kenny in a Group A Subaru. Try googling the decal company on the rear window. Number plates look a little strange. Could have been a mock-up.

Have a look at e-wrc and you can see that there was a gap between Kenny and Robbie ending and Kenny sitting in a Gp A Subauru - Philip McCrae and noel Orr filled Robbies seat.

The place I found the photos produce vinyls for 1/1 cars, but as its Japanese company (or at least their website is in Japanese) I had hoped they were making a replica of a car that rallied. Strange for them to have chosen a car from over here to replica if it is fake. Theres a gap in my knowledge of Kenny between his F2 Escort days in 96ish and gold Impreza WRC from around 99/00.

Of course they could just have used his Legacy as the inspiration for this fictional car.

This is the site http://www.decal-co.com/decalco/index.html

Brian, Its highly unlikely that anyone would go to the expense of making a blank Manx Rally plate for the door when the organisers would issue the genuine doorplate for the event with sponsors etc.included.

It looks like it's based on this (1994 Manx) ..and should be a Legacy!:
