    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

    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    Hello all!













    Excuse my long mysterious disappearance, thanks to being under the weather for a good two weeks, followed by immense weakness which continues but is fortunately getting better by the day.











    Have quite a bit of catching up to do, updates to threads etc……











    For the moment, announcing here that I have finally decided to sell one of my 68 Beetles. Too much at hand, so one has to go. Looking for a customer now…..any takers???











    Some details on the car are as under:











    Was restored in 2004-05. Not a body off resto but a good quality closely supervised denting and painting job to original specs. No alterations were done to the body apart from strengthening the chassis a bit. All the mechanical work was done which now needs a bit of attention.











    Unfortunately, the freshly painted bug was abandoned by my self as I went abroad for about a year. Came back and got busy with a new job so could not give time to the poor bug. The storage did her no good and the body showed signs of rust taking hold.











    Currently the car is at a denter’s. About half the bodywork is done. All four fenders were taken off and areas repaired. Both bonnets replaced by good used items as the ones on the car showed some rust.











    The roof is awaiting repairs. It does have horrible rust in the rain gutters. My approach would be to slice the roof off and graft in a clean one from a donor car.











    Or if someone wants to turn it into a convertible/speedster/roadster/Wizard, this is the ideal opportunity .











    I can offer two deals here. One, the buyer takes the car as is where is. Two, I can help with the rebuild, involving my own workforce under the supervision of the buyer and go according to what he wants. I can help with sourcing of parts, technical expertise etc.











    I am posting no pictures. If someone is genuinely interested, please contact me and we shall arrange a viewing. I think a physical viewing is a must if someone wants to purchase the car so that he knows what exactly is involved in the project. I do not want anyone to think that I am out to cheat people. Also we can sit down and talk in detail about the task ahead.











    Shall prefer a local buyer (mostly due to above reason) but its not a condition.











    Can post more detail if any one has genuine interest. I have no demand whatsoever, the buyer can offer what he thinks is reasonable. Clean papers in my name, taxes up to date till June 2009.


















    Best regards
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    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...

    hello All - I'm back ... and now have a new project in mind... when i was a kid - we used to live in khi and my dad said that we would build a dune buggy for the beach and have loads of fun in it !...


    ...now the plan is the same - the city is different and i believe it can be driven in the banks of the ravi.. what say ?


    i need a beetle with a good chasis/suspension and good engine.. as powerful as it gets would be the best - like the one Adil had (Aridsoul) - we took that beaut up to ayubia - ran the engine non stop for over 11hrs in our drive straight down from ayubia all the way to lahore ! ... yes believe it or not - we did not shut her engine off ! - it was a 1.6!


    so guys i dont care aboiut the body as im going to take it off... rest of the car should be good... can i get this kinda car for between 10-20k ? do let me know.


    thanks for keepin this forum going - HOOWAA to VWs...
    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    even the high compression mahle kits (like what i'm running) can be run on super so tell your mechanic that he's a muppet (7.5:1 isn't high by todays standards). KP used to run a 2100 with dual 40+ carbs and even that engine could run on super. i'd say go for the piston kit but ensure that you run in the engine before trying to push it hard.


    as for your old engine value, i'd suggest you ask asad or romano.
