    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!...

    @ MSM


    Where are you getting the mechanical works done on your bug. Have u just bought it.


    Do let me know theprice of the bug with the mechanic.





    @all specially Asad


    For how much normally do we get a bug from Sher Shah. I know it depends on the condition but some minimum to maximum range.





    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.

    never lose hope, they will try and break you down and frustrate you but once these cars are running they will be such a reward to drive and sooooo much fun. however do note that for a full restoration you will have to spend a small fportune and many people will tell you that you could have bought some random suzuki instead,.. YUCK!

    no doubt, i know from personal experience that as long as the car is mechanically fine the car will run forever and so many people who have never been in one are usually shocked at the level of comfort and smoothness offered by such a basic and old car.

    i think VW projects are never ending and that is half the fun (Y) let us know if we can ever source out some parts for you from ISB/RWP.

    Is he ok?
