    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!...

    Had a great get together today, Libra was here in Lahore.

    I test drove Miy16's VW, the ride is quite original over all, drive was good, specially the gearbox works really fine.

    @romano: beautiful beetle there.....what're the details / price?

    @all: i've been wanting to meet up with the khi based members for a long time now. how about we arrange a short meetup to check out each other's cars and share our knowledge? even if we have 5-6 members available, we can arrange a meetup.

    what do you guys say?

    Why put the 65 setup in your Thing as it should have the post 68 collapsible kind at least or the post 71 setup ideally???

    Want me to locate some parts for you?????

    if you could do that then nothing could be better, as it has a toyota steering column & wheel on it right now (luckily it can be rectified with VW parts). the 65 swap was basicly a last resort though. also looking for split window style taillamps with housings as i've converted my 78 thing to an ealy model (suits that military theme more).

    Id be on the lookout for a suitable column setup. Let me see.....you would want the post 72 kind?? Can you post some pics off the www to let me know what kind you need specifically?

    Id ask a few people for the split bus tail lights. These are tricky and would probably be expensive and then we might get something in less than cherry shape. Lets see.

    Sunday seems to be a good option but most of the members might be busy with family commitments...lets see how many agree for a meetup outside area 51 at 4 pm on coming Sunday....

    respond with confirmation so we can start planning

    Salman, whats a weeding? a garden cleanup or a smoke fest? Hmm; on another note, how many Beetle owners attending the PW meet on Sunday? I am in. We will be having a Spanish journalist covering the vent for a print as well as a TV piece! Make sure cars are clean.
