    i must say this is an honour to have the creator of the first car in Pakistan on this forum. Have you still got the vehicle and which person in the picture are you?

    I am the one in the center of the photograph, which was taken in Lahore in 1967.

    Yes, I still do have the car, but it's now in peices and packed in a crate. My sons dismantled it with the intention of restoring it, but didn't get around to finishing it.

    @Hamidomar, you should surely bring it back on the road!! It should be kept in a crystal palace!
    "The rough, hard idle swells up and out from under the car, ricochets off other cars, and rams into the ears of the driver, the spectators. You think twice about a 383 Road Runner, but a hemi only once -- and let it pass."

    To think you made your own vehicle back in the 60s with your own hands, yet in the 40 years since the Pakistani automotive industry is producing such junk,

    Just makes you think what the automotive industry could have been had more people like yourself been around.

    I design and fabricate machines for making man-made fibre! Thats my main interest but really for a living I sell the fibre and yarn I make on these machines! But my REAL passion is going offroading on 4x4 rebuilt myself!

    Well as to the comment by Tiger: My original dream way back in the 60's was to go into automobile manufacturing - starting with a vehicle (something similar to todays Suzuki pickup but more basic) and then move on to cars - but in those times building vehicles was a Govt. MONOPOLY!
