    @ Mohsin bhai

    The Split came with a 25 hp 1100cc engine. However currently it has a later 36hp one. I believe it came off an early 60s bug from the stories the late Jalil ustaad used to tell me.

    @ Vdubber

    WOW!! Thanks a lot for sharing the 1302 pic with us. Howcoem you never posted it before??? Its a real gem for someone who likes original unrestored dubs.

    Please be very careful in whatever you do with this car. Had this been my own car, I would have chosen between two routes:

    1. Keep it as it is, preserving it as much as possible. Maybe a clearcoat spray over the patina to help protect but after a bit of research into what was suitable etc. Only areas needing attention would get surgery.

    2. A very 'light' resto meaning that areas rotted out are repaired carefully and as little bodywork is touched. A simple spray of the original shade in the original formula is done. No alterations done to the original equipment that came with the car.

    It would be sacrilege to over-restore this beauty, modify it, change color etc.

    And OH YES!! We need tons of more pics!!

    A meet so soon?? I was hoping to collect more members. So far I see eight entries out of which two cannot possibly make it.

    A drive on the highway......lets see how many people are up for that idea. It can be kept in the list of choices surely.

    spanArial","sans-serif"; font-size: 9pt;"Vdubber’s Idea

    is very good but if people cannot make it to highway, how about a Beach-Drive on Sunday I am sure everyone can make it to Clifton on Sunday. There is a very good parking and sitting area at MacDonald.




    Also a suggestion for the people who will say that Sunday will be too crowded well there can be a breakfast -Drive (this is the time when most people sleeps on Sunday) and we could have the whole parking lot for our self’s .
    I am not in this world to live up to its expectation.

    @Doc,


    Thanks alot for the valuable suggestions re the resto. Trust me, I am not planning to do any sort of over resto on this gem, no color change no equipment apart from the original. I have been in love with the bug since I was a toddler and have had a dream of having a new brand beetle ever since. hence just want to have it restored to its formal glory i.e. the exact condition that it rolled off in from the assembly line......gives me a very nostalgic feeling. The color and all the equipment will remain original. Am planning even to keep the upholstery as original as possible. Ah and just to give you a small dose of excitement, each and every knob on the dash panel is genuine, fitted way back in 1970!!!!!


    Uploading a few pics to let you have a feel of the bug..........

    Imran is right. If people can't make it to the highway, then let's have a beach drive. And Sunday morning idea is a blast. There are a few beetle owners that I know would be happy to join in on a Sunday morning. We can still have a meet if the number of members is low. Uploading the pics here would definitely give other beetle owners a lot of motivation!!!

    This thread is screaming for input!


    Lets see where to start.......


    Thanks @ Devilspassion for posting his rides.


    @ Vdubber


    Lovely pics to show us some more details to drool at. Those threshold plates are juicy!


    I think you can add/replace a few things to this gem to make it more authentic. Examples include the steering horn ring, headlight switch knob and a radio blockoff plate. Would love to see this car in person soon.


    @ all


    Please give your input on which venue suits you. All ideas welcome!
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!
