What would the winners be for the www.dsf.my ‘Vehicle Of The Year’ 30 years ago in 1987?

In 7 days on the 12th of March 2017 we will be announcing the winners of the www.dsf.my – Allianz vehicle awards event. Before that let us travel back in time to the year 1987, some 30 years ago and look at what vehicles would have been the winners of each category if we had judged the awards then.

This might bring back memories for many of you and might be an eye opener for some others as the vehicles sold in Malaysia in the 1980’s were few and quite interesting.
