    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 feel the same, honestly.

    To make matters worse, I've heard from a couple of sources that back around '99-2000, a black 356 coupe miraculously turned at Shershah in KHI, that was scrapped.

    Not knowing what the hell to make of, or even do, with this 'Foxy jaisi gaari', the scrappies, in their eternal wisdom, solemnly proceeded to hack up the poor Tub into a million pieces. An act of unspeakable barbarity...

    But then again, every time I see an old VW abandoned under a tree, 'strictly not for sale' by its 'possessive' owner, or one showing up at the scrappies at the end of its useful life, a part of me dies too.

    On the bright side, I'm hoping to check out a 1-owner '64 Bug supposedly somewhere in town very soon. Should be interesting.

    Here are a couple of pics of the only known 356 Cabriolet in Pakistan as posted earlier on the VCCP thread. The car is in Karachi, waiting to be restored. It's a '62 356-B...enjoy.

    Smile Spottings...I-8

    Spotted in I-8 today on a random drive...


    1. One-owner '63 or '64 Bug parked for several years outside a house in a street in I-8/4. Looks to be very original and complete. Elderly owners presently not willing to sell. The car has become a nuisance for people on the street...

    2. Nicely restored '67 Bug 1300 also spotted in I-8. Nice.

    Happy Birthday )

    @ Storm

    Is there a difference b/w Sachs and BOGE strut inserts.
    A car for the people, an affordable Volkswagen, would bring great joy to the masses and the problems of building such a car must be faced with courage.

    I ordered BOGE from WW that is the only brand they have listed but they have sent me Sachs.

    So the only thing that I should and can do is inform them.

    Sachs purchased the BOGE brand name a few years back. It's the same shock absorber that they have produced since the beginning, and re-branded with Sachs/Boge.
