    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!...

    PATHETIC!!

    I've officially given up on khalid and his f*cking workshop. anyone who wishes to build a VW please feel free to waste your precious time & money there but don't expect anything to be done. I got there at 8:30am and sat around watching those muppets work on all sorts of junk instead of my car.

    come on, here is an enthusiast, who has spents lacks of rupees on his VW wanting to get some simple bloody work done to his car so that it'll be safe to drive and they are busy working on these old busted heaps of crap instead (including toyotas, BMW's and suzukis). I've been told numerous times by them to come after eid so that they can spend the day on my car and every time i go they are busy. how unprofessional can you get???? best part was, I got there early and they started working on a car which got there an hour after mine!! and what was the work? to fit a f*cking armrest out of some jap car!!

    i'm done with this garbage, and am moving on, the 1303 and the thing are lying around now, not interested in them anymore (and the 1303 isn't safe to drive at the moment as its wheels are not aligned).

    @all ISB/RWP "foxy" owners
    enjoy your cars while you can, soon they will be rusted and using jap parts. no point wasting your money on these things, there is nobody left to fix them anymore (at least not in ISB/RWP).

    maybe one day i might change my mind, but it's not likely to happen any time soon and i put it square on khalids head. now he is just another mechanic to me, same mentality, same ethics - which means ABSOLUTELY none!

    you're always welcome buddy. i woudln't want to guide yo wrong as your requirement was something else. however maybe later on a VW woudl be a great machine for you to learn mechanics on if you ever get the in mood. let me know what happens and if in the future you ever want a beetle let me knw, i'll find you a decent project car.

    @all
    sorry for the rant earlier, but in all honesty i did it because i'm mechanically inclined and cash is not a problem for me and STILL i have issues with these monkeys. so rather than you wasting your time and money i thought i'd let you know how it is.

    @asad
    i hear from KP that the mechanics in KHI are free to wwork on a few cars (no rush), you think it would make sense if i sent my 1303 to you for some work? cash isn't the issue, i'm ready to pay for quality workmanship.

    Hi Guys, long time no hear no see - sorry about being away so long, I never thought i'd see this topic grow and grow and grow -

    Yes the bug is a truly amazing car to own and if its in original condition - well what can i say - nothng like it!

    I bought a bug for my youngest bro before leaving the country - I'm now in Canada and waiting desparately for summer cuz thats when the car shows come... my cousin has a beautiful 66 bug that he has worked on since his teens.

    Its standing in the garage right now - never been driven in winter, its a deep purple(corvette paint) and has a porsche engine fitted in it(4 carb) yes i'll take some pics and paste them - it is a real head turner!

    hope you all are ok and doing well.

    Warm Regards and Prayers to all...
    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    @all
    please let me hear your feedback on khalids workshop, do be careful though, they've managed to lose my oroginal 1300 dual port heads/pustons etc as well as one of KPsheikhs gearboxes. you have been warned.

    @UMER127
    contact ahsanmq:

    https://www.pakwheels.com/profilevie...hsanmq~pw.html

    He might be able to guide you. He helped me find my 1303.


    @PuNk
    Yup, and i always used to tell him to be patient, but now i think my patience is finished as well. if khalid wishes to work on my car, he can come get it from my house himself (like he said he would),.. not sure if i'll let them touch my car now though. Don't want more stuff to go missing, have spent WAY too much on it now.

    CAR FOR SALE: This is an urgent sale, Asad spotted this car she's due for scrapping any day now they wanted to do it last week but we had them delay for a while.

    As the pictures show fairly clean, floor isn't too bad for a khi car. Taxes paid till 07. Oh its a 67 so a one year only, a good collectable

    Its a good project car, and am pretty sure you'll be able to swap the door in the pic with the scrappers for a little on top.

    Otherstuff: first car to have an indicator assemble with the button on the back that I've seen
    The bit behind the engine is in better condition than my car. Shocking!!

    Asad I'm hoping you'll put on the rest of the info., price, floor, engine etc.
