    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!...

    That sounds fair and reasonable.

    I think the wifes uncles car lead should be your first priority since transporting a top to Isb is a major headache plus do remember that Basit quotes his own rates and does not budge much. He knows his worth and that hes the best at least for karachi.

    I might doze off soon.......

    is the one on the right a 1303 or a 1302? can't tell from this angle but it looks liek a 1303. am curious as to why it has those cutouts for the bumpers? those "things" are getting rare, i hope they will be restored soon (alnog with all the rest of the VW's there). your posts are eye candy to us (Y)





    [/quote]


    the beetle next to type 182 is a 1302 converted to 1303.. its a Abdul Basit's creation (thats what i have been told by hiz son ) wat u guys think is it a converted 1303 or not

    Yes romano it is an original Cooper!! It was present for a short while at the 2009 VCCCP show and I am quite positive you had noticed it......


    I had pics of the show but the card got infected by Virus/trojans and so I lost them. Let me see if I can dig one for you.........

    @ Funky

    I see! WIP......work in progress.....never heard that before tho its so simple.....

    great pics of your 66. Glad to see it all back together again. I must say the painter did an excellent job in matching the paint to the body.

    @ msm

    Thanks for correcting me! I was half asleep last night (even now.....somehow woke up early) and could not remember the story.......Basit's son is right, it is a 1302 converted to a 1303. Basit had a front cut from a 1303 since a long time which he grafted onto this car I suppose. He is even capable of fabricating the front so anything is possible.

    @ naveed


    Yup its main Sindhi Muslim roundabout where the famous juice wallas/eateries/KFC/Eaton are located. Its easier for me to meet you there. The mech is a nice old chap and well versed in VDubs.


    You would be surprised (read shocked) to know that I would most probably get lost coming towards IMs place though he has picked me up a million times and taken me to his home/denter to supervise the resto of his 69 bug. Yes, my sense of direction is pathetic.


    About matrimonial issues....the less said here the better!! Dont want to see myself get banned

    @ Asad

    Agreed Agreed abt "the less said the better" I also deliberated to ensure being suttle enough

    I am sure I can direct you very well straight to my place.

    Whats the name of your mech...needless to ask how good he is .... or is he learning from you.

    The mechs name is Fredrick uncle. He does not need to learn from me!! He is an old timer old fashioned mechanic and is well versed in VW and many vintage engines. Its interesting to sit down and chat with him on various subjects.
