    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!...

    @ all

    I meant to post this yesterday but did not get any time.

    Yesterday was the 71st anniversary of the laying of the foundation stone of the VW Wolfsburg factory by none other than Adolf Hitler. 26th May is also my birthday.

    Ok so now heres the announcement:

    I am launching the Karachi Chapter of the VWCOP!

    A lot of people were after me to go for this step since a long time. Its going to be a low key affair however and I dont wish to have a club structure as such or positions. VW owners/lovers/admirers are welcome to join in. I shall make a list of Karachi members soon.

    Lets see what response I get here. Then we shall plan a mini meet sometime in the near future. All ideas and input are welcome.

    Best regards.

    Thanks storm for appreciating.

    I shall forward you a list once I have some names on it. A central database is ideal for countrywide members.

    Btw, I tried to make an account on the Picassa web album but get an error each time. Maybe I need to enter a Google email account?? Have lots of comments/querries to post there seeing all the pics. Would also like to upload pics in the near future.

    @ Asad do you know wherethis 1302 might be. If we want to go check it out.

    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.



    @ Asad


    This post card was sent to me by a dear old freind for my viewing pleasure. Yes its of the good ol net.


    Yes I think apart from a getting a really good bargain I would stick to my bug. Its a real smooth ride apart from the click clacks of the loose interior etc.


    They will only go after I undertake a full resto. Although I think a couple of honest hours of Basit will make it completely quiet.


    These days I feel owning just one bug aint going to be enough so as soon as I get some liquidity I will grab a 1302...have couple of them in sight.

    He has quoted you 35k for a body off. Did you do some negotiations. The price difference between a normal resto and a body off is around 10k then.

    @ Naveed
    The 1302 is not on the market as such. One of my denters who had worked on the car convinced the owner to sell it out to me as he used it very very rarely. He spent a bundle on it recently in the shape of new paint (though it did not need a paintjob as such), new head/tail lights, indicators and such. The demand would be high though. He was asking for 1 lac 20 thousand and was stuck on that when I spoke to him via my denter. Dont know where the car is now. I saw it when it was with my denter. I did have some pics somewhere on my cellphone but unfortunately have no bluetooth/infra device to upload it here.

    I can give you my cousins cell number if you are interested. Please approach him if you are serious about buying the car as he is occupied with his work etc most of the time. He lives in PECHS, near Sindhi Muslim.I would like to meet you sometime soon which leads me to think we have to plan out a meet sooner than later. I have to see your bug and I think you need quite a bit of guidance.
    I did not want to say this but I had heard from somewhere that your mechanic had made you think that Psyborg's 70 bug has a lot of pending bodywork/wrong front fenders etc etc. Has this same person led you to some 'ordinary' denter who quoted 25k for a 'normal' denting job??? I think you are being ripped off by someone you trust. Your bug, as seen in the pics here does not look that bad. Sorry for being blunt but I think you should be guided a bit before you fall down a deep hole!
    Also I think a lot of the clicks and clunks are fixable without major work so hope that we meet up soon.

    @ Asad


    Actually he did take me to the denter but the denter was none other than Basit himself. Cant say if there was some kind of collusion there. Just clarifying by normal denting I meant complete denting of the whole bug ripped bare and complete paint scrapping. If that makes it sound a little less exorbitant. But now I think I should see at what rate he settles with you then I'll renegotiate with him. Will u get the paint done at Basit's place. Even if u intend to get it painted some where else do take a quote from Basit as well. He asked me around 30k for bhatti paint.

    @Storm, what fields are you maintaining in the spreadsheet?
    "The rough, hard idle swells up and out from under the car, ricochets off other cars, and rams into the ears of the driver, the spectators. You think twice about a 383 Road Runner, but a hemi only once -- and let it pass."

    if you've got a VW you are in

    @all
    VWCOP stands for volkswagen club of pakistan, so we need chapters accross the country.

    @asad
    if you'd like you can send me all the details and i'll update the list we have online (it's a gmail shared document) which limited people can access (obviously you'd be one of them). will ask romano to send you an invite so you can access the document. its "read only" at the moment and all changes need to be emailed to me so that there is only one person making changes.
