    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!...

    great to finally meet you that day. I hope that joker didn't drive you completely crazy after i left. he really talks alot of BS doesn't he?

    I hope everything is in order now with your car.

    @aridsoul:

    Hey thanks for checking, Yes I do need the synchronizer. I will call you tomorrow, i hope thats Ok, I want to confirm with my mechanic to see what kind do i need.

    And thanks for appriciating the car. I tinted the windows myself.

    @Fedd:

    Thanks man, i will be posting more pics on Monday, Actually i think engine bay is cleaner then the car.

    @Beeberg:

    Hey, thanks man. Performance is good, cant complain. I am starting to like it very much, the credit goes to excellent engineering.

    @hotadeel:

    Thanks for the info brother.

    @Storm:

    Hey it was nice meeting you. Dude he really does talk a lot. Everything you say he has to relate something to it and you can so tell that he is shooting from his hip. But overall he is not that bad (i guess).
    The car is running really well MashALLAH...I am going to Papu's to buy a new engine, I heard he has a couple of dual Carb engines.

    Do you have any idea how much a 1600CC dual carb or single carb should cost me?

    as far as prices are concerned, it's papu and that mean you can never guess the price. best advice is to ask khalid ustaad.

    @storm:

    Samir bhai you are right. I had to buy a new fuel tank for my car, he charged me Rs.1800 for it. But the problem is that nobody else had it.

    As far as the engine is concerned, he told me that a standrd 1600 will cost me Rs. 16000, and if i give him my engine it would be 12000. I think its bit on the high side.

    Anyways I went to peshawar over the weekend. Car went up to 65 MPH (on petrol, ofcourse), i was pretty impressed. I can just imagine what a 1600 engine has to offer.

    @i_fear_that_i_may_lose_u... It might be a pile of sh*t... But WE LOVE IT! ...and for your information, Foxy was NOT the old name of it, the word "Beetle" was actually decided as a name for this car. I don't know whether you know its meaning or not but to increase your knowledge, it was named after the Bug Beetle (Insect) because it looked like it.


    @devilzpassion... Thanks man. I'll do some work on in after a couple of months. These days I'm stucked in domestic work etc.

    @devilzpassion:

    Thanks man, appriciate it. By the way i love your car, actually your car really inspired me....specially the checkerd foot panels and the the rims. Good job man...By the way, how big is your cars engine??

    @i_fear_that_i_may_lose_u:

    Brother, if you dont like the car you can just not post anything. Its a personal choice, some like Aishwaria and some like Resham. No one is right and no one is wrong.

    Just out of curosity, why do you hate this car? And i am expecting a very good reason. nothing like oh my friend said this and my uncle said that.

    On top of that I LOVE THE CAR and really dont think it matters if you like it or not, plus this car has a lot of potential unlike a HONDA CIVIC (no offense to Honda fans, This is just for @i_fear_that_i_may_lose_u)

    Peace out...Salman
