    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!...

    the code is written on the top of the box, i don't think you'll be able to read it when it is intalled on the car. i ran the codes ofthe boxes shakeel had but they are short ratio (An series) and intermediate (AO Series) boxes. the AO is from a karman and is worth buying since this gearbox allows VWs to run smoothly on higways at low revs.

    however the first 2 gears are more or less the same in ALL gearboxes and long ratio boxes will kill all performance on heavier VW's (like my 1303 which is running an intermediate box).

    i preffer the intermediate box since it allows for highway use as well as decent performance as well as keeping the revs down (less heat).

    i think you've also got an intermediate and your car WAS an economy model which means that it has a very light chassis and with the new setup it shoudl be VERY quick (just like romanos car).

    more pics buddy.

    i've only done 120km/h as that was the limit on the motorway from chakri to ISB (5 other VW's following). however my car shouldn't be a guage as i have a 30 carb rather than a 34 and the 1303 is the heaviest of all beetles.

    i think that as long as she can keep up with modern traffic it's all good (Y)

    was forwarded a link a few days back regarding VW's in peshawar, thought i'd share it with you all.

    http://volkswagen969.piczo.com/morev...linkvar=000044

    have to admit the guy has put alot of effort into the site and it seems possibly he's a PW member as there are some pics of skullboxs 68 on that site as well (with PW watermarks).

    really nice to see someone with so much entusiasm (Y)

    @Storm: Peshawar does indeed have some nice VWs and dedicated owners, as does the NWFP in general but I suppose because of the climate/security situation, we don't get to know much about them. Take for example Moqeems recent purchase of a 1958 Beetle from Peshawar at his typical bargain-basement price. Also a good friend of mine told me of a 1-owner, all original (including paint and engine stickers) 66-67 1300 Beetle somewhere in D.I. Khan, for sale...


    @Aishaikh: so you want a 60s Microbus, eh? Even if I knew of 1, I wouldn't tell Just kidding. I would also love to get a hold of one, but they're damn hard things to find up here. Look back somewhere on this thread, you'll find Romano took pics of what looked like a 1965-67 11/13 window microbus in blue & white, parked somewhere in ISB.

    But I would suggest trying Karachi. Believe me, I've seen split buses still being used on school duty and miscellaneous other commercial applications. Still in reasonably supply down there.

    there's none on PW at the moment but keep checking in, a while back a nice blue one came up for sale and was advertized for quite some time till someone bought it.


    @all
    have you seen the "12 valve" beetle for sale in the "used car" section... ?????

    Yeah. I saw the ad. Asking for 500,000. Too expensive and was out of my reach.

    @RB
    1) it's a peshawar based site, it HAS to be bling bling
    2) Buksh is usually out of country so it's hard for him to concentrate on projects for too long
    3) there are a few MK1 & MKII's out there, generally the MKIII & MKIV are the popular ones amongst PW members. let me know what you want to kow about the earllier ones as i have a little experience with them from when i helped out at NS Racing in the UK.
