    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!...

    @miy16
    congratulations on the VW (Y)

    you should be able to get the 1/4 glass from a kabaria, but make sure it is a post 1968 window as the earlier stuff will either not suit your car or not fit.

    Ignition switches are becoming harder and harder to come by, specially one that works. best bet is to get in touch with a good kabaria or your local mechanic and have them source you one.

    do you have pics of the rear spoiler? where was it mounted?

    your car looks like a 1974 economy model, which is quite light and the 1200 will be ok in that car. however i was reffering to running a 1200 in a deluxe or a superbeetle which weigh ALOT more. I had a 1200 in my 68 speedster which weighed about the same as a "thing" and it was REAAAALY slow.

    let me know how we can be of help and we'll do what we can and also share some more pics/info on your car.

    @fadee
    thanks for the mention, but i wish i knew as much as romano, nasir & asadishaque, those guys are die hard VW nuts, i only specialize in superbeetles and things.

    @storm


    Thank u so much for all the info!!!!!!im very grateful!





    umm yes ur totally right-mine is a 1200cc economy 1974 model.





    ohk well i guess i misunderstod u there- i get ur point now-i thought u were tokin abt the 1200cc economy models in general-soo i was a lil offended there to be honest coz i love my car and i know its potential and get quite hurt when ppl say stuff abt my car-so im sorry but i guess i had nt understood u there!LOL-MY BAD!


    well many ppl told me to tok to a kabaria abt the 1/4 window and i would really love to but the problem is that i really dont know any!-plus my dad does nt allow me going to bilalgunj and similar places alone to look for stuff coz he says that they ll rip me off which is true but then i get frustrated and he mostly never has the time and soo ive got a lot of work to be done in my bug and the problems are only increasing. My passengers seat big windows mechanism has got spoilt and does nt go up an ddown nymore soo my denter has fixed it shut and ive kept the handle so my friends dont forcefully try and get it down(uno how young ppl react when they see/sit in foxys!!!lol)yeh but its very frustrating coz u have to tell u rpassenger=yaar im sorry aapka sheesha nahi khulta but you can open the smaller side one!lol...soo i feel bad abt that. other than that my glove compartment is almost worn out and im looking for that too. soo yeh ive got a lotta work to get done!!!!


    it wud be a great help if u cud refer me to an experienced kharadiah or give me the location of one that wil do a gud job....


    abt the spoiler i meant the small spoiler type thingy that rests on the dickey of the beetle-i was actually tkin abt that small thingie.....soo thats what broke a few months back when my brother was leaning on it!lolyes quite unbelievable i still get mad at him for tht!lol-


    i will attach more images of my bug as soon as i get the time-im hung up in a lil stuff nowadays but ill try nd do it tomorrow.

    Just thiking aloud...

    Where in Pakistan (I mean absolutely anywhere in the country) would I have to go to find the following VWs in any condition but without being mercilessly ripped off?

    1. Oval window Bug ('53-'57)
    2. '58 - '63 Bug RAGTOP
    3. Karmann Ghia (older the better)
    4. Karmann CONVERTIBLE Bug (any model)

    Information highly appreciated. I'm currently sitting VWless and not liking it one bit.

    @ Romano: that car's actually a 1958 Ragtop that's owned by a restaurant manager in the PC. He's an old man who's owned the car for donkey's years and I tried to get him to sell once or twice, but refuses on the grounds that over the years he's developed a strong bond with the car.

    It's rusty but running with mods in the all the expected places - maybe I'll try him again soon.

    On the subject of Ragtops in the twin cities, there's also a bright silver coloured 1960 ragtop (LHD) that I've been seeing around Isloo for many years. Last I recall it was owned by a radio presenter (possibly in Radio Pakistan) back in the late '90s and not for sale again.

    Anyone know this car/owner?

    Cheers
