    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!...

    Hello all,

    Have been away from this thread for ages..... lets see a lot of catching up to do.

    Will work backwards for replies/comments.....


    @aqibasit

    Ive seen your beetle at Sajid's. Its a nice car tho it could benefit from losing some of the paste on stuff. Just my opinion, its your car really and I have no right to dictate.
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    Id just take the liberty of elaborating on the link you had posted which I suspect few have checked.

    Mr Nasir Shaikh, a VW enthusiast from Islamabad had his 1960 LHD VW Beetle displayed at a Canadian VW show. The particular bug had been exported out of Pakistan for his use in Canada where he is currently posted. It has some one off tasteful local Truck Art on it.

    Of the total 168 cars in attendance it won the top award! What an achievement!

    @ spectra, timeless and Fedd

    Aha! I have a (topless) sister of this model, a black convertible!

    Bought it from the souvenir shop at London Aquarium. These are made in China and of reasonably good quality. Wonder why these are not available locally since it was not very expensive if memory serves right.

    @ Fedd

    Good to see your blue bug again. Would wait for the in progress pics you plan on posting.

    You are having a nice engine rebuilt. The 1500 is a desirable unit. Some enthusiasts prefer it over the 1600 dualport as it has few problems due to the simpler intake manifold identical/ similar to the 1300 and 1200 respectively.

    Though its kinda late now, I always advocate going for powder coating for the sheet metal/shields on the engine as its much durable than paint. Anyway, for Lahore and Isb people it may be practical since rust is not a major concern.

    Is the new engine in the car? Please do keep the old original unit safe with you. Any car with the original engine is much more desirable. You will have a chance to reverse anytime in the future.

    Good luck

    Drooled at the Mango Festival pics.

    Bugs are lookin great. I cannot be the one to complain (especially since Romano had invited me over for the event) but how come everyone has taken only and ONLY pics from a certain angle?? No close ups, interiors, engine bays etc?

    @ alisaif

    Thats a great lookin 'dub.

    How long it has been since you painted the tyres for the whitewall look? What kind of paint did you use?

    Still waiting for more pics of this beauty. It does have earlier 66-67 vintage wheels (and drums) fit. Interesting.

    Look forward to hear from you.

    @ psyborg

    Are you in Jeddah now??? What are your plans?? Hope you would be coming back soon. What about your bug.....has it been abandoned?? Please please get it up and running.

    regards

    @Asad Bhai
    cute bug . Yup I don't think they cost much and should be available locally. But sadly no one likes FOXY here much.

    @Storm
    that's a sweet collection

    Can anyone tell me where I can find these in Karachi.
