    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!...

    @Asad

    What has Basit quoted you for a body off and are you going for one. Just to see if I can think of getting a body off resto for my Bug.

    What color is your cousin's Bug and where can I see it. Tomorrow is a Sunday and Bug watching is my favorite passtime and who knows I might just fall for it.
    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.

    Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

    check this out, i'm sure few if any of us have ever seen a VW with such an interior,.. but they DID come from at least ONE factory with this configuration in 1986.

    @ Storm! This is with the reference to the pic of the interior panel (Beetle '86), that 'Beetlish' style is missing from it. Don't know why but I will always go for the conventional one.

    Hmm


    The 86 beetle interior is something I have never seen. Yes I agree with people here that it does not suit the bug at all. Not even supers.


    Yes *maybe* for the Mullholland looker wheich would have rectangle head lamps to complement all the rectangles/suares on the dash.....but then maybe is just a maybe.....
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    @ naveed rizvi


    Where did you get your hands on this postcard???? Or is it off the good ol' 'net??


    I have some VW postcards as part of a collection of odds n ends. Most have been bought from the UK and some were gifted to me by Romano who also got them from Angraizland. Should get them scanned and post them here.


    Oh, You showed interest in my cousins bug......I dont think you would be interested as your bug has lesser bodywork than his. I would try to dig up a picture. I saw it somewhere....maybe on Romanos Picassa album.


    And yes Basit is expensive. He has quoted me 35k for a body off resto on the ragtop. And that includes all my own stuff, even new floorpans which were sourced from Pindi thanks to the efforts of Romano.


    The only other option for me is to send the car to Isb to Romanos denter, Babar ustaad. His work is simply superb but then i would be spending something over 20k for the to and from transportation upcountry alone. Denters labor would be additional.


    Waiting for Basit to get back on his feet and shift the garage as he plans.

    @ Naveed

    Yes....dug up the pic. Thats my cousins bug in the foreground, the one with the wheels and front drum off. It was having a brake service when snapped by Romanos camera. The 68 in the background is the car rescued by R and then passed onto Mohsin bhai.

    As you can see its in good shape overall apart from the dents on the fenders and the rear quarter panel. This was the accident damage I was talking about. It can be fixed easily and as you can see theres no damage to the frame whatsoever.

    @ All

    This bug is for sale for 50k. A reliable daily driver. Good for someone who wants a bug to drive around as is and go for a full resto at a later date. All taxes clear, in owners name who happens to be the second (or third at the most) owner.

    Has good potential.
