In the meantime...Another News Flash! Another VW potentially up for saving from the scrapper in ISB...this time let's try and get this right!
The car in question is a 1963 Beetle in white, with an old Mianwali number. This car has an interesting history. It used to be a regular fixture in the Blue Area for umpteen years, and was apparently an 'abandoned' vehicle.
In the early 2000s, the car was taken away by the Kohsar police in preparation for the August 14th parade one year (back when they used to be public events). The car was then impounded at the Kohsar police station, in F-7 where it stood for several more years. I noticed the car there one day when visiting a client in custody.
My contact at the Kohsar station, an ASI, now tells me that the car is awaiting either auction or scrapping at the Abandoned Car Lot/Pool in Tarlai, which is somewhere near the Commissioner's Office. I am not familiar with the area.
Can anyone help out? The car is complete minus docs and largely original. too old for the scrapper!
