    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!...

    Here we go. Yes, that's a 1958 Beetle. Now you see it, no you don't. My old Beetle spotted in G-8, which I had the pleasure of owning between 2001 and 2004. Seen after an absence of 6 years. In a sorry state....it breaks my heart.

    @ Romano: yup, that's the way to go. Clean, dry rot-free bare metal rustproofed and primered. That's the way I want to drive my Beetle for a while, eventually. I like.

    We had a little VW get-together yesterday just on the outskirts of ISB. was really hot so we didn't go out much but many people bought alot of parts which were sent to us by nasir sheikh in canada.

    Nasir, thanks from all of us.

    here's a few pics i snapped up when i was leaving.

    Woot!! that'll be awesome!! all the more reason for members to participate

    Guys, needless to say, please spread the word about the meetup.

    Last time, quite a few owners contacted us AFTER the meetup and complained that they had no idea about the meetup and would love to join next time.

    While me and Asad are cold calling owners not on this forum, we would appreciate your help in making this work out

    It was a sad evening, watching Germans loose in the Semis, I am sure all VW & Merc owners and fans were backing Germany!

    Anyways, great Job once again by Babar, he recently worked on my Unimog and I am very satisfied customer.

    No doubt about the effort and time spent by Romano for restoring this split screen. Afzaal sb looking good with his delicate touch. The quality of rust free treatment was amazing. Highly recommended for all restos being done!

    @Murtaza

    Not sure about the late token charges, but around 35k seems a great deal to me for a 1500. Go for it. And please do post pictures of the car here; if done up nicely (i.e. as close to stock as possible), it'll be a great ride. Sadly, there are many abused examples out there. Being Karachi, watching out for the tin worm goes without saying.

    Guys,

    We have moved the event to NEXT sunday, the 25th (time remains same). This is done so we can have maximum attendees. Also, Shahzeb should be able to join us next sunday as this father is undergoing surgery today (may he get well soon) and we would love it if he brings his Karman to the meetup!

    Please keep spreading the word
