    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!...

    Hello All,


    Just wanted to ask: does anyone have any idea who owns this early '60s Ragtop in Karachi? Is the owner willing to sell? Saw these pics on VWCOP's Picasaweb Album.

    Any information highly appreciated.

    @storm


    jee bilkul it was very sad indeed to hear abt khalid bhai s sister.!!!


    aww well thats also very frustrating to know that most meets are in isb!i soo want to come to each and every one of them but since i live in lahore its very difficult plus i doubt my dad wolud allow me to do so even if i could come because travelling cities without a license or an id card is not very appealing!anyway thaanks for the info and umm i hope ur 182 gets done fast and runs smoothly InshAllah.


    Regards Murtaza.

    please try and contact Fedd, he shared some pics recently of a VW workshop in LHR which seemed to be better than anything we have in ISB/RWP or even KHI... i have full faith in fahad (fedd) so if he says the place is good it means it IS good. he's also a Beetle owner and has alot fo hands on experience with these cars.


    @fedd
    over to you buddy,.. keep us updated.


    @spidey
    anytime buddy, see you at the next one too.


    @all
    don't forget that spectra was also there,.. he's a regular and is always invited to VW meets as he is a true enthusiast.

    Thank you for your remarks, but I would request miy16 to stick to this forum and learn as much as he can from guys like you, Romano, Asad etc. Like I do. However being in the same city I'l try to help him out at my best.


    @miy16 - Now since you have my contact, feel free to ask any help required. I will tell you some good mechanics in the city. Welcome to the club!
    Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

    Salam.

    I was wondering if anyone here has pdf versions of the various VW manuals and handbooks. I was searching around on the internet and there are tons of books that i would love to have. i did find the haynes manual though. if someone has these manuals and books i would appreciate of they can email me? or maybe i can get it copied if someone in karachi has the actual hardcopy of the book?
