    Default Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP)

    Lets all contribute pics and memories to this timeless classic that has faithfully served generations. It is my 1st car memory and my dad who is a Beetle enthusiast at one time had a total of 4 beetles in our garage Here's a little history of this miraculous German wonder: 'The history of the Beetle really goes back to pre 2nd world war Germany when Ferdinand Porsche had a vision of a mass produced vehicle that was affordable to the average German, an idea that was shared with the young Adolf Hitler who himself could not drive, but was a car fanatic. Hitler was apparently influenced by the achievements of Henry Ford and his production lines - reading Ford's biography while in prison during 1923. Porsche had previously worked on some other small cars that used many elements later to be included in the Beetle. The Type 32 prototype NSU of 1934 was an air-cooled rear engined four cylinder horizontally opposed powered car that used torsion bar suspension and featured beetle-like styling.' --- source - Google.co.uk lets keep the posts rolling - add pics of bugs you've owned or own! I'll add my dad's bug family pics as well ... I guess he fell in love with this oddly shaped car after he drove it down to Pakistan from Germany!!!! .. stories of that wonderous journey keep us entertained whenever our family gets together


    Mod edit: thread title changed in May 2008
    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    yesterday i took out the 1303 only to find out that after 2 VERY hard braking sessions the brake pedal becomes so hard that it's like it is set in concrete, will be looking into that issue tomorrow, and then wiring will be redone shortly after that.

    anyone know where i can get a proper polishing machine, i have to refinish the clearcoat of my car. i already have a 6inch grinder and if i'm not mistaken i can fit a polishing pad to it but i have no idea where to get one.

    BANJA LUKA (Bosnia) - July 21: Passersby inspect a Volkswagen Beetle made out of oak wood at a parking lot in downtown Banja Luka. It took owner Momir Bojic, 50, a year to coat his old “Beetle” with oak wood and make it drivable.—

    Spent some time at the workshop in evening, went to see the progress on the Bug. Took a couple of snaps, thought I should share. Here 1500cc in ready to be installed, and a 1303 has come for engine upgrade from 1600cc to 1800cc.

    by 1800c you mean 1776cc right? that means that this 1303 is going to be alot of fun,.. but he needs to change his carb, the 34pict isn't going to be enough for that engine anymore. he needs at least a 40IFD or 40HPMX.

    that 1500 looks brand new, the guy has done a great job cleaning it up and that means he probably built the engine well too. is this your engine? what state is your car in now?

    fedd.

    i second what storm has said about the 1500 being in great nick. unless i am mistaken, i think i spot an SVDA distributor. im assuming this is your engine, did you buy the distributor from pakistan? and if so, from where?

    @au & asad
    long time no see, hope all is well with you & your VW's.

    @all
    spent the day fiddling with the 1303 today, had a great time. slowly i see tiny improvements but too small to make any HUGE difference at the moment. however i think it's time for me to clean out the fuel filter as it's dirty and since i'm already running an undersized carb i'm running into fueling issues (running too lean at the moment)
