    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!...

    you can find a centre cap and have the steering realigned & repaired so i'd not bother replacing it. i take it that it looks like this:

    these are pretty easy to find but you'd have to import the "D" ring.

    being a 71 it should have the chrome ring with the "D" and a wolfsburg crest centre cap (castle). usually the D's are missing and people make do without it in PK. if your steering is in order (the bits that are left) then i'd suggest you just get the horn part (chrome) from the kabaria till you find a better example or import one from abroad.

    there are many options, here are some ideas: CLICK HERE

    ^ The Original Chrome D-Ring Horn is REALLY hard to find, I'm looking for one too, no luck so far.

    @ All I need a float bowl for my '68, my mechanic has searched SherShah no luck, if anyone has one or know's where I can get one from please, do let me know.

    the D steering is impossible to find in PK, but a replacement part can be cast by a specialist pretty easily if you have the rest of the metal part of the steering (horn part) as a template. then all you have to do is get it chromed or painted (easier to do).

    a float bowl is next to impossible to come by, but from time to time you will come accross one. i'll keep my eyes open.

    I met Murtaza a short while ago ....at his mechanic's......I think he has a long story to tell us with the moral that one should NEVER EVER give a VW to any mechanic who does not know these cars. Period!

    He needed the carb float and of course not the 'float bowl' itself.......

    I would like to lend him a float off my stranded 68 to bring his VDub on road so that he has his car.....at last.....out of the clutches of the wicked wicked mechanic ustaad jee.....meanwhile we shall try to source a spare carb for him......

    Rudeboy.....is it a possibility you have the 1200 standard style steering???.....it has a simple round horn button at the centre and no horn ring or bars at the sides....

    a 71 1300 bug (provided that is what you have with no engine swap and alterations) should have the steering with the D ring. Btw most people do not realize that the D ring finish changed in 1968 from a nice chrome to a dull silver chrome finish....more what aluminum looks like.....

    If you have decided to change over to an aftermarket wheel, you have an option.......get an original Brazil made steering centre kit and mount any aftermarket wheel on it. The greatest advantage is you dont have to alter a single thing and the indicators would still cancel after taking a turn, just like it should......if you need the Brazilian kit please pmail me....

    Btw, why not post a couple of pics of the wheel on your bug??? I would like to see what you have....
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    Nice-looking '65 LHD Beetle for sale in LHR. I rather like this one.

    Could someone in LHR pls check this out?? Looks clean, minus the wierd bumper-patches and incorrect rear lights/indicators.
    contact Fedd(fahad), tell him you're a friend of mine and he'll check it out for you. i think that if it is as good as it looks then it'll be worth the asking money.

    Fedd/fahad is "our man in LHR" (VWCOP)
