    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!...

    @syedbilal
    give asad a call (or email) and i'm sure he'd be able to guide you in the right direction as he is the Beetle guru/keera in KHI. if that doesn't work, you could also try having a word with romano as up here in ISB/RWP he is always the one who knows what beetle is worth buying etc.

    just remember that no matter how well a KHI car has been restored it will eventually show signs of rust, whereas a car built up here will tend to last a little longer (less humidity). either way, just remember that no matter what car you buy, you'll need to spend a small wad of cash to bring it up to a good daily driver spec.

    I hope you don't intend on chopping it up or ricing it out. if you are, please reconsider the idea, these cars are best when kept in original form (even I am removing the rims on my car and fitting steel wheels shortly).
    Good luck with your search.

    @bilal, contact Sajid at 03002245865

    @ all

    Sorry for the disappearing act. Am tied up with some issues. Have tons of stuff to write here and on other threads but today would just be a skim.....

    @ syedbilal

    Copy pasting the text of my pmail reply to you here...

    ''Hi,



    Sorry for the late response. Am tied up with a few issues and thus not posting on pakwheels. Will make a comeback soon.



    I must repeat what I had said earlier....I hope you are not planning to chop the beetle up in the name of modification, the interior included. Please note that attempts to hack the dash to slap in some other cars dashboard would not be viewed with good expressions on my and a lot of peoples faces. I can and will help you at each stage of your project provided you dont wield the choppers torch. A few tasteful BUT reversible mods are ok but no chopping.



    You *can* get a decent bug within your budget. Have to look around a bit. The lead given by Psyborg of Sajid mech should be your first. He is near Cafe Piyalla and old DC office. Give him my reference. He had a very decent 1974 beetle a few weeks back which fits your bill of the ideal car. Pl note you can never get a 'perfect rebuilt' engine with a project car, exceptional luck excluded. You can get a decent running engine as with the said 74. I hope you do not plan to turn it into a drag racer tho.''



    Best regards

    @ storm

    I must complain about your long disappearance from Pakwheels while you were in the UK.

    I could have guided you to some VW sources in the Greater London areas and in the West Midlands too....

    Super bugs are not very popular (or as popular) as the non supers and especially pre 67s abroad. Locating parts is not a very big issue and one can haggle on the price too.

    I guess the best bet for the ashtray would have been UK....Pakistan would not offer you many spares unless you get very lucky.....

    Pl post a pic of the required 'tray so we can all keep our eyes peeled......

    Good luck.

    @ all

    Chance to save a 66 Beetle from the evil scrappers.....

    From what I know so far:

    --Complete car
    --Documents complete and in order
    --Taxes paid uptil 2007
    --1300cc running engine
    --LPG fitted


    I can get the same for a fixed price of 35000 Rs. Will pass it on to anyone who is interested in saving this gem for the same price plus maybe my TA/DA expenses.

    Sorry no pics of the car. Have to buy it saying its for my own ownership or the deal would not materialize.

    Best regards.

    @ clubshaker

    Thanks for the lovely spottings. the orange chop top looks mean.

    I had a chance to come to Bradford while in the Uk but could not manage due to unavoidable circumstances. How is the place to live in?? It has VWs so that part is answered!

    Kay p???

    Are you out of Pakistan for good??? I read somewhere of your VWs being orphaned??? Whats the plan?? Is the 67 complete?

    Excellent spottings you got there.... note the AC setups...... I ve seen exactly the same setup as on the bug in karachi today....

    If you look closely at the bug engine you will see its and EFI engine.......the bug itself seems to be an interesting mix of year parts.......

    Btw I see another bug in the garage....no pics of that one??

    Keep posting!!

    Hope things are good with you. I think you must put a detailed advert of your blue bug up soon if you want to sell it....

    @asad
    indeed i fell off the radar while in the UK but i had alot of work to do and i had promissed myself that i'd spend more time with the family so i didnt go online while i was there (i needed the break)

    I found a whole bunch of VW scrap yards (like volksheaven etc) but none of them had an ashtray either.

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply...ge!104~pw.html

    here's the ashtray again:

    You could have tried Volksmagic in the West Midlands. Anyway lets see...you still have Ebay and thesamba.com to search.


    Good luck.

    Seems like the ashtrays are one of the first items to get vandalised out of a super.

    Fingers crossed. Will post the link here if see for sale online anytime.

    Im surprised about the lack of response on the breaking news. Anyway most posted on the VCCCP thread it seems.

    I shall take the liberty of stealing the split pics to post them here. You can find them on page 319 of the VCCCP thread.
