    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!...

    @ anonpak

    I for one am not too concerned about the VW dealership opeing in Karachi. I know for sure they would never show any interest whatsoever in our vintage rides.

    A while ago Volkswagen of America led a crackdown on VW related websites and clubs. They banned the use of the round VW logo and tried their best to upset the international VW clubs all over the world.

    The reason behind this exercise was simple....people would buy new cars/VWs only when the old were scrapped.

    I would like to see what an idiotic moron heads VWoA! He does not realise that an old VW on the road is a live advertisement for the company!

    @ ahsanmq

    Please post three or four pics of the muffler here (or send them to my pmail). I hope the genuine fitting areas have not been welded anywhere.

    Provided its clean and solid as you say, I am interested. It would be a good addition to my spare parts bin. Pl quote the price, if reasonable consider it sold.

    I have a friend who tours Lahore frequently. Can ask him to collect from you and pay on the spot.

    @ psyborg

    Thats what I was talking about. This area rarely gets rusted through as its closed/protected from the top by the tunnel.

    Best regards
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    asad storm all.

    what do we know of baja bugs or dune bugs in karachi? any good ones in pakistan? body fabrication would be the only real issue per se in the project i envisage. a good vw mechanic will be able to upgrade and mate suspension and brake work i suppose. what do you guys think?
