    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!...

    @ all

    I visited Mr Amin ul Haq today. He owns a 1956 Oval window Bug. A thorough gentleman whose company is always a pleasure. He had some issues to discuss with me relating to the outer door lock of the bug.

    After discussion I suggested we go to Mohsin bhais place, an idea gladly accepted . I promised Mr Amin that a surprise was also in store for him. The look on his face was a must see when he saw the split at Mohsin bhais place!

    Shall post some pics I took very shortly. (P)

    Perfection of dreams!

    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -887209


    Interior.... The oval dash is just so juicy!

    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -887210


    Ah the ride was a real treat! Experienced the character of a 50s bug. The non synchro 'crash' gearbox is unique!

    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -887211


    Mohsin bhai, ppl note the rear view mirror. A split mirror was similar tho not the same. A late fifties/early sixties one *might* fit tho Im not sure.

    The roller accelerator pedal unique to early bugs....

    Something interesting....

    Mr Amin convinced me today that we must have a proper VW club for our city. Discussed with Mohsin bhai too who suggested that the VWCOP should have a proper Karachi chapter.

    Romano?? What are your thoughts on this?? Pl let me know.

    Regards.

    asadm most VW fans on this site probably have no idea how important that split is (or any split for that matter) as most of them are new to the VW scene. also i'm loving the oval of amin ul haq.

    Mohsin, keep us updated and good luck restoring/straightening that W-decklid, it's a very VERY important bit and it requires alot of attention (Y)

    @mohsin ......... whoa man!

    Needless to say I'm extremely JEALOUS of your latest possession!

    MSKHAN |-)

    P.S: Can you please fully document this car BEFORE you restore it? Has it been messed around with? I would like to have the pictures afterwards if its not a hassle for you. I can share my email with you if you want to discuss this further.

    i think an early beetle would be a good idea considering the vehicles i already have, but as romano keeps telling me, one at a time. only reason i'm ina rush to grab a bunch of these vehicles and work on them at my leisure is that every day another one gets destroyed/ruined.

    currently i've got the thing, the 1303 and a 68 1500 deluxe, now i want a pre 67 type 2, an early karmann and any type one from a split to a 66.

    Absolutely love that floating Beetle ad! Story at the time was that Ted swam out of the Oldsmobile, leaving her to drown, but a recent BBC program came up with another theory; Mary Jo after dropping him home, drove off alone, and being a beginner, missed the sharp turn and ended up in the water. Yes, if she had been in a Beetle, it would probably have saved her live.
