    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!...

    Default Beetle Restoration

    My favorite show Wheeler Dealers once destroyed a Beetle. However, in their latest series they have restored one.

    Here are the link for that episode on youtube:

    YouTube - Wheeler Dealers Volkswagen Beetle season 6 part 1

    The remaining parts are also available on youtube.

    I hope its not a repost.

    @fadee
    That day was an exception as it seems many more people were motivated from a long time before, usually it's us 7-8 people who always turn up. Personally I think that even that is a good turnout as we (VWCOP) along with the Viz gang and the 95 civic group really show up in full force every time. Don't forget that our cars were the oldest there and we all still made it. Your car was looking awesome as usual.

    @mahmood
    Not an issue buddy, you should have just hopped into a cab and joined us without your VW this time, you could have at least met us all. Still there will be plenty of other occasions as we are a very active group. hope to see you at the next one.

    @salman1230
    honestly i think that part was a victim of "nazar"

    @all
    I hope SOMEONE got a few pics of that lovely type 182 which turned up a little late. it has been with that owner since the last 15 years and it was spotless. loved it!

    @Sameer:

    Completely agree with you man;My beautiful fuel filter was a victim of Nazar but what the heck, i ordered another one already.

    As far as the Radio, please stop showing me these toys, you are killing me...... would look amazing, wouldn't it?

    @All:

    It was nice meeting all the club members yesterday. I think we should do this more often.

    Thanks,

    Salman

    @ All: Had fun...

    Nice to meet the new faces

    Loved that I finally got to see the 'Twin'

    Unfortunately I missed the Thing as I left with Romano and Zohare...

    All those sleeping/snoozing/lazy VWCOP members out there who have missed multiple GTG's, will your cars ever see daylight again We are beggining to doubt if you still own them anymore LOL

    LOL! i'll tortute you forever since i know you are one of the few who will and can actually go over there and physically bring them back.

    @funky
    naughty boy, you missed the thing... but you are right about the missing members,... mayeb they just fall under the catagory of "owners" rather than "enthusuats",... lets see what happens when they need our help.

    @Storm, Salman and all interested ...

    visit this site Original radios for your classic car

    They got good stuff. I recently bought one for a '60s pontiac and their service was good. Got the stuff I needed.

    WOW!!! too bad they don't have the one i need for the 1303 (Blaupunkt Emden) & the stereos they have for MB are not the right ones. many of the beckers are missing. for a complete collection of radios it's better to check out Autoradios

    @Storm, then check this out for ref and give a shout out at Ebay and Samba... you'll probably get one
    Classic Finnish Volkswagens-Vintage Radios-Blaupunkt

    but it'll cost you dearly!!

    Default Karmann cabrio bug in isb - where is it now???

    Dear all:

    Just dug up these pics, which were taken by Storm back in 2007, of what appears to be a 65-67 Karmann Convertible Bug, apparently an embassy car (not sure if diplomatic plates, can't make that out) but certainly owned by a foreigner - at that time.

    Where, oh where on earth is this car now? I would absolutely love to get my hands on this machine. If she ain't driving it, why the hell keep it? Probably the only time it's ever been spotted.

    On the topic of convertibles, there is also, again apparently a 65 vert owned by someone else in ISB (local car) - only 1 picture exists of this car and that was taken at the DAWN lifestyle exhibition a few years back. God knows where that is, again.

    Any info highly appreciated.

    This website REALLY explains everything about your VWs engine (and some other things) and it is worth reading ALL of it:

    Rob and Dave's Aircooled Volkswagen Pages

    i had a slight misfire in my 1303 and i found my solution on one of the pages.
