    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

    I'm not too sure what to say about this picture, but it think it had something to do with giving out romanos phone number...

    Punk, yr spellings still suck. The car you profess to have such an admiration for is spelt with a double E. The spelling you used was the name of a famous British rock group in the 60s....... :-)

    @Storm... I might meet the owner of 1303 someday at the garage and will ask about the carb he planned for his engine. And I guess its engine got fire because the paint is burnt from the rear lid's top.

    No thats not my engine, it has been cleaned and spray-painted that is why it is looking like a brand new. However the old-chap mechanic IS famous for building good engines for Beetles.

    I'm also going for 1.5L with 34PICT Carb, it was reduced to 1.3 by its previous owner but I decided to install its original 1500cc which came in 1969. The Bug is having some bodywork, floors, doors etc. I will post the pics of progress.


    @au... Yes it is the SVDA Distributor, its not mine but I was also interested to know from where that guy bought, it looked brand new to me. Mechanic says he brought it himself. I have a stock 009 Distributor.
