I was told there is a photo in a VW magazine of the 1977 Lifesavers sweepstakes White Rabbit cars that I would like to find for my collection. The photo shows 5 of the cars with a bright backround and was on 2 pages with text to the right side. I belive the photo would of been taken when the sweepstakes was run, sometime btween October 76 when it was launched on the cover of Hot Rod to September 77.

What other VW magazines were in print back them? VW Trends, VW Greats, and HotVW's?

I remember this contest. I believe it was in Volkswagen Greats.

They gave 4 away with the lifesavers sweepstakes and another 5 to the winners of the ICAS/ Autorama car show. Some were sold at some VW dealers also. I think Volkswagen Greats only put out 6 issues a year. Anyone have a collection out there that could see what issue has the photo?

Nothing that I could find in Volkswagen Greats Magazines.

Thank you for looking for through your collection for me. My old build thread from the vortex, maybe I have the only one left. But I was told one of the lifesavers cars was sceen at a show in NC or Virginia F/S in 2018 that was very rusty.
