    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!...

    Psyborg, yea really! the guy is a disgrace. Why he insists on doing this is beyond me, unless that is the brainchild of some rival manunfacturer trying to ruin the VW brand. Any input guys?


    why bother trying to help those who do not wish to be helped? we have good VW's,.. in a few years the rest will be gone and then we can raise the prices of our cars since they will be rare,.. LOL!!!



    [/quote]


    I find the always-stranded-by-the-road-67 story rather interesting. I think this guy needs to be tracked down and interviewed! the only thing I can imagine is that he is sorry moron who understands nothing about cars or VWs for that matter and is perpetually ripped off by cunning mechanics who make botched repairs to his 67.


    Anyway, if giving him a good lecture and a crash course in VW mechs could help then maybe it should be done.


    Btw if anyone can get pics of this 67 it would be great, especially a closeup of the attached 'tales of woe'.

    As Aleem has pointed out, this car has/had the steel sunroof.


    An interesting fact not known by most volksfolks is that VW offered the ragtop sunroof right uptil 1967 (or was it 66?). But this was only valid for the basicmost standard 1200 models. For the 1300/1500 Deluxe models you could only order the steel sunroof. The reason was that VW considered the steel sunroof far superior to the old ragtop as the former was designed to be theft-proof.


    If people have very good memory, a maroon ragtop bug was spotted by Devilspassion a long time ago and a pic was posted here. From the only shot available, I could make it out to be a 66 model car. The ragtop mechanism was all missing but the aperture was original. Sadly that car has never been spotted again.

    I am not aware of such a setup. Not 100% sure in this area though.

In case you are wondering where this rant is coming from; we have a dark blue/silver roof 1967 Beetle in Isb that is frequently seen , abandoned by the roadside,. with a sheet of paper stuck to the windscreen listing its various mechanical and electrical failures. Why do these reliable cars have to get treated that way? Any idea?
    Today I spotted the car parked on the main road in F-6 just before the entrance to shaheen chemists parking lot, seems that he manged to get her to move again since she was "parked" correctly. last time i saw her she was stranded on nazim-u-din road (F-8). i hope this is a sign that he is getting his act together.

    @ all


    My elder brother is coming down from Cali, USA next month. What do you suggest I can ask him to bring for me??? He cannot afford to buy more of the pricy items (has overshot the budget already) so big things have to wait for a while. Smaller, hard to find items ideas welcome.

    i'd suggest the rubbers that go under the outer door handles, the rubber stopper that prevents the engine lid form banging into the body, the stickers for the entire car (6V, tyre pressure, valve clearance, etc), some urethane suspension bits, carb service kit, engine lid handle gaskit/seal, sunvisor clips (TMI), wiperhsaft-to-body seal etc.
