As I have no intention of restoring this particular Oval I did not care about the VIN or the title. BTW there is a way around the 'Title less' cars. A lot of people sell their titles and tags along with frames. There is at least one company that provides the service of providing titles from old records.. so where there is a will....
I have almost all the smaller Oval only bits that I had stashed away in my attic. The first priority would be my Oval ragtop. I'll have plenty of left-overs to use in this project.
@reezvan!!! i soooo have my eyes on that radio now...should u decide to part with it, il be glad to take it off ur hands!!
First lets hope that the "complete" Sapphires make their way to Pakistan and then if one goes into my dash, I promise you to add in the list of those who want this radio. @shahzebulhaq & @AsadIshaque are included there already

ASALAM-O-ALAIKUMi love Volkswagen but don't know much about them , i've planed to buy beetle or golf and today i saw a golf looking fairly clean it was 1984 and has a badge saying GolfC , although i liked her and she was for sale having 1.5l diesel engine interior looks clean left hand drive islamabad registered on owners name and the owner says it has very few rust and he was asking RS:250,000 , so i need suggestion from u that is this price fair ? how much should i bargain ? what will be the maintenance cost ? it will be my daily drive , should i go for it ?and if some one from this club can visit with me that would be great favorlooking forward for ur helpRegardsAtif
hmm..golf eh?? maybe sameer can shed some light here...i myself know very little about golfs, but as with any old car, a 1984 will be somewhat unreliable for a daily driver...if u can live with that then great!! also, VW parts are extremely hard to source...so if u break something...ul end up waiting for a month at times...more still if ur lazy...just a few days ago, my bug was stranded for a week cuz the starter motor went bust...that is no discouragement tho!! sourcing parts is the fun bit!! get a VW once...ul never like a Japanese car again!
actually i like to hunt for parts and i love to live with that and i am also lazy .......... i think sourcing parts would not be too much big issue as we got many members to help , aren't we ? r we can some time import them from germany ... and i could learn very much , so what u say should i hit the deal , what about price ? is this fair ? 250000 ?
@stormsameer bhai ! i would like to have ur comments plz suggest .......
I'd love the fender indicators for my thing, I gave mine away to someone who needed them desperately only to realise too late that I could not find replacements.....
I thought you were going to have smaller (older style) taillights and corresponding old style smaller indicators up front. Change of plans?
For a clean 1.9d that is a decent price. Expect to spend Money on it though.
Tail lights are on, but beggars can't be choosers....
Consider them yours
yea already had planed to spare some bugs to spend after buyingand what is 1.9d ?thanks for the reply
You guys are just impossible....
Bug for sale... how much should it be for??
Yesterday I was called up by a Kabari here in Multan who happened to hack up an "on road" 1970 1200cc Deluxe Bug and is all set up to cut her up. Upon his call I happened to visit him immediately to have a look and here is what I found:
1970 1200cc Deluxe - seems pretty "complete" except instrument panel (Japenese steering wheel/column)Registration Plate Karachi (K-5936) - Both Engine & Chassis Number are Matching and Correct to the yearSilver & Black (Has lots of filler)IS Start and On Road but motor is @ 40%/45%Radial/AlloysTax paid till June 2006 (6 periods short @ 1300/period)Floor all rotten/under hood & spare wheel well all rottenHas new computerized registration book with complete return file in tactOwner Asking Rs. 50,000 (his purchase price is 40K)
Here are a few pics, in case anyone would be interested drop me a PM for contact info of the person who now has the ownership (Kabari). But if you could make up your mind, please BE QUICK coz I dont think he would wait for anything more than a couple of days:
I've got the small tail lights on my thing.
There is no universal price, it's all down to spec, condition,etc...
@reezvaanIf he's got 4 steel original & straight 4x130 wheels I'll send the cash right now
No he doesn't, sorry, he has got only one steel wheel that you could see in the trunk and thats all. All other four are alloys, 04 lugs.
