    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!...

    i have seen one but empty some years ago.

    In 1945 Sir William Rootes headed a government committee of car manufacturers and went to survey the Volkswagen plant at Wolfsberg, Germany. On viewing the 'peoples car' he is recorded to have said that he thought it was too small, noisy, and ugly to be commercially viable. You can imagine why. Of course the car became the VW Beetle and the rest ... is history!

    Plus, i've checked for the 34 carb with Cheap Autos, he only got 30 and 31.

    By the end of this month, he will be getting some stuff for his shop. I dont have his digits... you can check with him if he can help.

    Storm agreed...
