    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!...

    ^ remove what you can and dry it out, try parking the car in the sun and warming it up (with a window or door open) and it'll dry out a little as the car heats up.

    Reading comments by both of you makes me rethink about this:


    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -906631


    and this
    "how long does a vw beetle float?"

    those are new cars you are reffering to. i have all the rubber seals to close up my car but sadly i've got a leak somewhere. i think it is a combo of heater tubes and side-step bolts in my case.

    BTW we were all joking about floating after the trip as we experienced many deep puddles on the way.

    @storm:

    Great pictures, seems like a lot of fun. Romano as usual is enjoying his Basanti (love his car)...Anyways, sorry all for disappearing completely....I was out of the country for few months but now I am back....will catch up some time.

    By the way, Sameer I am thinking about getting a beetle again, I would love get my hands on another beetle...... I would prefer an older model and I dont want CNG. But your comments about Khalid and his workshop are really holding me back. I dont have as much time now as i use to....so what do you suggest?

    Once again, great pictures!

    Thanks,

    Salman

    @salman1230
    welcome back buddy, glad to know you are doing well. khalid has been acting up lately due to the fact that he's been very preoccupied with other things (his son just got married etc).

    As for getting back into VW's that's not a bad idea for you since you are anready infected with the VW virus. However your last car was really good and now finding one better will be hard and you are guaranteed to have problems with any car you find now. I suggest you have a word with romano as he is usually up-to-date with the cars for sale. You missed a great car by a few which was all original, but i'm sure there will be more to come by. at the moment there is a tremendous 1303 for sale but the askign price is in the 3's (do note that my 1303 has cost me 396 till now), but i'd advise you to avoid the superbeetles like the plague as they are very annoying to get parts for.

    stay in touch buddy.

    @FuNk
    he said he was out of the country

    @Storm:

    Yeah I am glad to be back! actually I heared similar things about Khalid's workshop for couple of other people as well. I am now interested in a 66...I know they are not easy to find but hey they are not that difficult either if you seriously look around.

    Lets catch up some time, I will give you and couple other fellow pak wheeler a call and we can get together for coffee or something.

    @Punk:

    Last few months were extremly hectic I will tell you the story whenever I get a chance. Anyways, hows life, are you done with School?

    Thanks,

    @Storm:

    Omar's car looks pretty good, what is he asking for it? I am going to see a 66 tomorrow and i might end up getting it. Anyways, Sameer if its not to much of a trouble, can you email me your cell number. I have lost my phone with all the numbers in it.

    @Punk:

    I am very happy for you man, Congratulations!

    @Au:

    I was actually very interested in this car. I talked to Tariq (the owner of the car) a few times and his final price is 160.

    Thanks,

    Salman

    @Sameer:

    Thanks man, appriciate it. I will phone you tomorrow sometime. Anyways, I went to see that 66 today, actually the car wasnt bad.

    Engine needed some work worth a couple of thousand. I wanted to offer him exactly what he demanded but he changed his demand within a matter of 15 minutes. That changed my mind and left the car as is. Honestly, I wont buy it now even if he sells it for 10K.

    Enough for now, will chat later.

    Thanks,

    Salman

    @au:

    Yeah i spoke to Tariq (nice guy), he has this car for last 17 years i believe. The car was in original paint until 2006 if i am not mistaken and then it was repainted to match the original paint. According to the owner the car is extremly clean and is flawless.

    The car looks pretty good...I have offered 125K but i think he has an out standing offer of 135K and is not willing to negotiate the price yet. He told me 160K was final....

    It might be a nice car but i dont think its worth 160K.

    Thanks,

    Salman

    unlike many of these people selling these overpriced cars, many VWCOP members actually have a full breakdown of every penny spent on their cars. so they CAN justify their prices.
