    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!...

    @Aleem1:
    Best of Luck Aleem bhai. Yes I will let you know if I find any bug which suits your taste. Our 1958 beetle project is going good. The denting is almost complete, will be handed over to the painter in about one or two days, most probably monday. Will give you updates about it time by time. Yes, I lost my cell phone accidently and all the contacts. Kindly let me know your cell number.

    @Salman1230:
    Thanks Salman bhai. Will be in touch with you now.

    Regards.

    do contact your local VW workshops as they might be able to help you more. there is a member in LHR (WP ID is FEDD) who might be able to help you more.

    Dear Storm

    I finally got a bug but there is one problem the man who has the bug is not the owner but his bro and he is in canada and he also not have CNIC Card and it is not possible to transfer the bug into my name without the owners CNIC Card. now what can i do?

    @Storm

    Thanks for your support. I dont think Shakeel meant to say what he said.

    Anyway, Shakeel what I meant to ask was whether you need any parts from my side?

    Wanted to ask you discreetly (so as to give you first priority) but now let me announce that I have the last known limited stock of pre 66 body trims in Karachi. I do NOT have complete sets but a few of some of the trims. These are not German but are decent.

    Let me know who wants some

Just call me. Cash can be sent the following day for a good one, and the massacre can be stopped! Honestly, if I had a massive parking lot/unlimited resources, I'd stop scrapping all VWs, period. Not nice, but then again...where are we to get our parts for 'our' beloved cars from then?

    [B]
    Aleem,

    Today I got to know of a nice 66 on death row. Reportedly it is complete with most parts on it, even the paint is decent. Would need a battery and some TLC to make it run.

    Please let me know asap of your interest. I plan to go see the car tomorrow, come rain or sunshine. I have a feeling it is something decent and worth saving.

    Pre 64 bugs are super rare now. A few years ago they were the ones mostly being scrapped at Shershah. I dont think you should even wish for a ragtop as they are practically non existent here. Only 5 are known, including your missing one. Maybe the whole Karachi population stands at 10?

    Ghias ending up at shershah??? I dont think so. If I see one I wont let it go!! Split buses would be rescued at first sight. I already have some people with them on their wishlist. Plus an investor who is ready to buy any number of split buses.

    The saddest part about the scrapping business here is that many of the things end up going to the melting pot as there are not many customers for old model parts. And there are some scrappers who destroy the whole car, be the parts on them like brand new Have seen whole running clean engines being 'dismantled' using nothing but a sledge hammer

    The pics of this car........well they are bad for my health

    Why dont you put something a bit more inconspicious instead of the red tape??? Silver duct tape can be located easily. Or maybe paint the little patch silver???

    The red tape stands out like a sore thumb on this beauty

    Congrats on your purchase, details please

    Im sure there is a legal way around your hitch. You may go and ask the local motor vehicle reg dept in Lahore and find out the procedures.

    I guess the owner's current ID card's copy (be it from Canada/NADRA overseas ID card etc), a copy of his last Pakistani ID card and a letter from him saying that he is selling the car should be sufficient. You may send him a scanned copy of a transfer letter/sale deed for him to sign and post back by snail mail/courier.

    Best wishes and regards to all.

    @AsadIshaque:
    Thanks a lot for considering me for the parts as your first priority, but I've already ordered the trims, they will arrive by the end of this week INSHALLAH. I know you had some body trims for pre 66 models. Anyhow thanks for asking. As far as I need something from you, I'll let you know.

    @Aleem1:
    Thanks a lot Aleem bhai.

    do you have a copy of some ID of his? perhaps you can get it transfered like that. alot of people don't transfer cars but i think its alot safer to get it done otherwise if you get stopped by the cops for checking or something you could have issues. try checking with the registratino office if they have a copy of something like that of his ID card or push the seller to get a copy so that you may transfer the car (even if you dont do it).

Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون
