    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!...

    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.

    @miyaan1987 ........ thats the magic of air ride suspension. Won't drive it this lowered ........... it just for show. They might drive it for a short distance to put on a show. Usually park it like this. Looks wicked !!!

    @miyaan ......... Yes there is!


    Though I like the airbag route because one can adjust the ride height and not scrape the VW's bottom all over the place while normal driving.


    What model you got? I'll share the details in a short while. Let me eat my dinner first!

    @miyaan ....... please don't mind me asking this question. I absolutely mean no disrespect to you. I want to know if you understand suspension setups and especially VW suspension setups at all? If you do, it'll make my life easier explaining what is what and how to achieve something with suspension setups.
