    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!...

    Every one who knows anything about VW has an attitude problem ..... take any denter/painter/mechanic ..... its the issue of demand and supply. ))

    Otherwise VW would have been the easiest and cheapest to restore given its simplicity of mechanics.

    Again its a layman's point of view dont know what the Storms/the DOcs/and the Romanos think.

    My plans actually I am not really sure the 1302 I just want to have one if not now than some time in the future when my pockets are deeper and the 65 etc if I get some thing really cheap and worthwhile I might keep it for stock.

    I agree to some degree, the sad part is that they too are getting sick of repairing these cars again and again since every new owner scr3ws them up first and then fixes them (i'm guilty of doing this too with my first 68). however just show them you are enthusiastic about VW's and willing to learn from them and they'll show you how capable they are.

    untill recntly khalid (RWP VW mechanic) was getting on my nerves but it was only because he was wearing out. he took a break, and now is back to his old style. sadly he is retiring soon and i wish to get all my engine work done by him before that because if a monkey rebuilds your engine it'llnever run right,.. this guys engines last forever when he builds them himself.

    @ Storm why is khalid retiring is he that old.

    I have seen his workshop in many of the pics at PW. So many Bugs at one place ..... a sight for sore eyes. If I get a chance to come to ISB/RWP soon I will surely visit his place.

    @Naveed
    yup, he's old and more than that he is tired.i'm guessing he has another 2 years left in him at the most and then he'll be done with VW's,.. but not before he sets up a new workshop (hint hint)

    you can get replicas of these from moqeem/shakeel from time to time, but if not then you might want to call pappu and see if he can offer you a good used set.

    @ Storm

    Bro i would like to quote u my car as u looks very in with the beetles.
    if u ever find a guy who wants to buy a proper hooked up car plz let me know, i will sale my car to the person who can offer me a handsome amount. not a kind of guy who offers like he is joking.
    to tell u the true bro i m not dieing to sale my beetle, i m just leting u know that if a guy can pay for my bug's value then i'll sale it, otherwise it really looks good parked in my garage.
    i bought a mark 2 this weekend (totaly ride off) and from next month i'll start working on that new project. in the meantime if u find a proper beetle luver then do inform me.

    the details of the car are below:

    orignal engine

    16" rimz with 205 low profile tyres
    fantastic color
    suspension recently changed into new 1
    sony sound system installed
    inside everything is orignal and dashbord is laminted with wooden
    BLA BLA BLA

    well seeing my car in real is more then this i believe.

    swear that it really cost me abt 3 lacs but i dont want to demand anyhting as i can bear loss but it doesnt mean that i will be accepting too much loss i'll only sale my car for a handsome amount to a geniune buyer.

    Notorious, yr nick says it all. What HAVE you done to the poor car?
    Apart from bragging about the modification done to the vehicle you haven't told us a SINGLE bit of useful info.
    Year, colour, engine size, come on man, thats the kind of stuff that sells cars, and, oh yes, a photo or two would help! :-)

    In the early 20th century a world market for only 4 million automobiles was made because "the world would run out of chauffeurs." Shortly after the end of World War II (1945), the whole of Volkswagen, factory and patents, was offered free to Henry Ford II. He dismissed the Volkswagen Beetle as a bad design. Today, more than 70 million motorcars are produced every year. The Beetle became one of the best-selling vehicles of all time.
