    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!...

    @ Storm

    Thanks for letting me know. It does get very difficult to deal with the greedy scrappers especially if ones plan is not clear. So far I have just asked him to hold the bug till I see it. He (along with a huge number of people at Shershah) knows I do end up buying whole cars or a ton of parts.

    Heres the plan: I shall give you a call from the boneyard provided the car turns out to be a 62 and has potential. Then I shall describe what you need to know and finalise stuff. Else it would yield a lot of parts for purchase. I shall be keen on taking stuff as this is a non VW kabaria and anything not purchased goes to the metal pile most probably.

    I have to visit the boneyard anyway as a trip is long due so will go tmr. Have to pay another scrapper some outstanding amount too so its important.

    Where are the W115 pics??/
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    @All
    Thanks for the replies mates.

    Finding a buy isnt an issue, but finding the parts is.

    Thats the reason why I am thinking of buying as clean a car as I can with in 80-85k and then'd be changing things to improve it as much as possible.

    Requirements:
    1. Never must have run on LPG.
    2. Petrol or CNG ideal.(can do without now that the prices are right for gasoline).
    3. Bodywork, trays etc in good condition with minimal rust.(If there'd be patch work I'd preffer changing the trays if available - would affect my buying cost even more).
    4. Conventional shift(Non Steering shifter).

    Laughing aae.

    I'd myself'd preffer calling it a wish list rather.

    Suna hai we can buy quarter, half and full trays still, but in Pakistan is a question. A good question.

    Thats why I first am a bit curious about parts, b'cause I know its a great car and I dont want to spoil my perspective towards it because of some idiot buying it and driving it to destruction.

    Waisay a Question for all. Yaar 71 mein shayad coils aa gayay thay na, aur agar aisa hai then, would'nt a 71 be better then an earlier model with torsion bars.

    Haan any one selling, if I find patch work with paint done on rust, I'd call it as no deal immediately, as that would mean that you're just trying to make a fool out of me.
    FULL STOP

    @all

    I am currently looking for a vw car . Would really appreciate if u guys could help me out. I would prefer a 1972 model however any other model should do.

    If I have to get it painted. how much will it cost if its the best possible quality.
    A car for the people, an affordable Volkswagen, would bring great joy to the masses and the problems of building such a car must be faced with courage.

    @NaveedRizvi
    why specifically a 1972 model? my suggestio nis forget sticking to a certain year sinc eit'll be hard to find a good car. VW's are getting rarer and rarer every day, it's best to pick up ANY good one you can find.

    almost ALL VW's will need a paint job, denting and mechanical work done to them. expect to spend at least 50k-60k on any car you get (minimum), that's why i always buy cars which need rebuilds so that i can get everythign done right. eiher way asadishaque is the right guy to speak to in KHI.

    asad.

    electric choke is alright. i await your post about the issue.

    will post some pictures of the steering wheel as well.

    also, if the '62 beetle ends up being scrapped, i get first dibs on the window washer button if its in ivory and the drums (assuming they fit on a '65 and are in good nick)

    also. i need sun visors and half moon hub caps with clips (i think im being too wishful on this one) for my '65, any leads?

    salman.

    she is a beauty mashAllah. how about a story to go with the pictures. who did you buy it of and how they managed to keep it in such amazing condition? how is the car mechanically? and perhaps if you wish, venture us a price you paid for the car.

    i can vouch for the condition of salmans car, it's AMAZING!! no panels have been repaired or changed since new, there is no "puttin" on this thing (maybe on the roof, but i didn't check), all panels are in 1 piece.

    best of all, the horn is original (meep meep!!!)
