    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!...

    @ ahsan:

    Nice findings!

    The brown n chocolate bug is interesting. However its not a 1968 economy. Its a 1967 1500cc bug. It may be an American spec example in which case the front fenders are original. On the other hand if its a local model front fenders have been changed. Rear decklid has had louvers punched in.......though its a neat job, its a testament to the mistaken belief that bugs overheat in our local climate. Interesting fact is this bug MIGHT come (as an option) with original front disc brakes tho I am almost sure this example is missing its.

    Silver super is nice. Shame that the dash is not pristine n has been messed about n hacked.

    Just hate it when people throw in non genuine steering wheels n column.........if the convertible owner is impressed by a Townace he should buy one instead........dont want to criticize the lovely car further..........

    Regards to all.
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    all things considered that is a fair price for the car but since it is a chop top and not a real cabrio i can see chassis flex issues eventually arrising if the body isn't braced properly.

    @ Storm.....

    Yup this ones better......hey isnt this the car YOU bought???? Whats the update on this ride????? You had a resto planned didnt you?????? Whats with the secrecy n mystery shrouding this super???????Plz update us as At least IM impatient about this!!!!

    BTW...the upholstery on the second super looks original???Is it??????

    Which reminds me I saw a 1975 economy bug in GENUINE paint a few days back!!!!! lovely car!! Of course the owner refused to sell it!!!!


    Storm is very very right about body flex issues on chopped up convertibles.............I do NOT recommend anyone butcher up any bug unless they have an indepth insight n research into an original convertibles design.....still chopped n hacked cars are not my cup of tea........


    Regards.
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    Hello Everyone!!
    Finally today i got my car back from my mechinic, got a 1600 CC conversion in my 1970 beetle. Most of you have seen my car hopefully....

    Sameer bhai as always helped a lot...so thanks buddy.

    FYI: The engine i got was in a pretty good condition, i didnt had to replace the piston and the sleve set, just added new rings and thats pretty much it.

    Now few questions about the Engine break in Process:
    I was told that since i only changed the rings i dont have to drive for 100's of miles to complete the engine break in process. After the conversion they started the car and let the engiine run for about 4 hours. My main mechinic tells me that i can drive my car as hard as i want and the break in process is complete.

    On the contrary, other guys at the workshop say that i have to be very careful for at least 500 miles and then i would need oil change and some other adjustments.

    I was searching the web to educate myself and came across this article. THis article explains the whole process.

    " Running the Engine!

    This next step is VERY IMPORTANT! Immediately bring the rpm's up to 2500 or higher. I vary the rpm's between 2500 and 4000, and do this for 15 minutes while keeping your eyes glued to the oil light! A second person back at the engine looking for oil or fuel leaks is a REALLY good idea too, since you don't want a fire or Valdez in your driveway! Most oil leaks will occur very soon after startup, if at all. Now, this is a nerve-racking experience to have the engine (it sure seems loud!) at these rpm levels when it's NEW, but if everything is OK, it's going to be fine. Remember that this engine is not even under a load, so it's not a big deal.

    After the 15 minutes has elapsed, shut down the engine, and change the oil and adjust the valves. When you fire the engine up this time, you can let the engine idle, and make the needed carburetor adjustments. Drive the car easy, and change the oil and adjust the valves again after 100 miles or so.

    Now that the "bearing break in" is done, you want to REALLY heat the engine up by driving it hard! This loads the rings and will break the pistons, cylinders, and rings in together. I have found that engines that are missing the flaps or thermostat assembly have a tough time seating the rings in, and the only cure for this (my experience) is to get the engine HOT (some of these engines "never" break in). Find a hill and drive full throttle up the thing a few times, in a gear that loads the engine down a bit. The loading and extra heat burns the glaze off the cylinders and allows everything to seat together well. I do not feel a longer "break in" period is needed (some say 10,000 miles) other than getting the rings seated, and this can be done in 500 miles.

    Repeat the oil change/valve adjustment at 500 miles, and then resume your normal maintenance schedule (which hopefully does not mean oil changes every 15K miles, and/or valve adjustments once a cylinder or two goes dead at idle).
    "
    source of the article:http://www.aircooled.net/gnrlsite/re...s/engnbrkn.htm

    After reading this article, now i am kinda confused what to do and what not to...I know this is a long post but i know there are a lot of experienced VW enthusiates and i want some honest suggestions/precautions and am counting on you guys.

    Another question:

    I was driving home from the workshop and i was about to run outa gas so converted my car to petrol (planning to remove the CNG kit), no problems....Stopped at a petrol station to fil up the fuel....the car would not start at all...it sounded like the battery is dying but no problems when i was driving it on CNG. I have a new genrator, new coil, new rotor, plugs and a three months old 85 A battery. Any ideas??????

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    @asad
    yup it's the same 1303 but i've not started on it as yet,... i'm busy building a 66 at the moment (will start a thread n the 66 once it's ready)

    @salman
    i'm just glad your car is back on the road,... lemme know if there is anything else i can help out with at any time. Enjoy the extra power of the 1600 buddy.

    @Sameer Bhai:

    Yeah its not bad, I am happy to have 1600 but to be honest not overly excited about it, since the engine is not starting right now...Take a look at my second question and let me know if you can explain what might be happening.
