    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!...

    since i did not take many pictures, i was actually waiting for others to start posting... now, seeing that no one else is planning to volunteer, i guess you people will have to make do with pictures of the 66 Bug that came to the g2g... these are the only pics that i have, cuz my phone gave up on me at that very moment, and even though asad bhai asked to cover all the cars, i couldnt (curse my phone)!!!

    ^i knew if we nagged enough we'd get some pics,...

    it also looks to me like this 66 is a deluxe and has been with the owner for some time now and he/she has been travelling abroad from time to time and collecting goodies for it. no doubt that is a beauty and i hope someone else took pics as well as after seeing this car i'm hungry for more hidden treasures from KHI...

    nice beetle ..... PRD ??? weren't those plates replaced a while ago with the new plates?

    Does anyone know the procedure to keep the original plates (is it possible at all)? My Beetle's got its original plates and complete record and I'd like to preserve it (not make photocopies of the records - thats just not the same). Is there any sane person in the registration office who had the foresight of suggesting antique car plates ????? (thats a long shot I know).

    Dear Devil's Passion, since ur the devil here, can u ask the other club members to stop procrastinating and post the pics already?

    Default More Spottings...

    • 70-71 1200 Economy Bug (LHD) - Peshawar
    • 69-70 Bug in yellow. RHD, but looks to be a US specification car: bumpers with overriders, high-back seats and tail lights with side reflectors...possibly a conversion. Interesting (Isb)
    • Two-tone 63-64 Deluxe Bug. Pretty sure it's a 64, but sports earlier turn signals (Isb). Anyone know anything about this car (RIC 7373)?

    Default VW Beetle 1303

    a friend of mine started off with a VW1303 as a project car but could'nt continue. The car was complete and in running condition. Currently the denting work is complete and the parts are stored with him. He could no longer commit to the restoration and wants to sell off to a VW enthusiast. Anyone interested?

    that SLR (and the 74 bug) guy is me....and i stand guilty as charged for not being able to post pics...

    had a little *incident*, hence no pics

    on the day of the meet, i had a mila'ad at my home and rushed out without telling anyone. In the haste, i forgot to grab my memory card which was in my laptop to make space for the meetup pics.

    the camera that i use doesnot allow the pics to the be stored in permanent memory without the mem card, so as i switched it off, all the pics (there were a good above 50 pics) got wiped off

    more than sharing the pics with all you guys, i can't say how disappointed i was, being so excited about the meetup.

    yes...you've certainly come to the right place. Quite a few people would be interested in the 1303 here, me included. Please post details & pics if you can. That would certainly help.

    Thanks
