    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!...

    What should be done to get a technically correct job done as far as body work is concerned.

    Can we develop a checklist of some sort for body work to get the best possible job done.

    this 66 has been in the making for quite some time. it belongs to the denter (Babar),... and the cars finish is unbelievable. not sure if he;d sell it but if he did it'd be worth every penny.

    What abt your Beetle. Are you working on it or planning to sell and buy another one. I might have a couple of decent options for you.

    Guys,

    I need to overhaul my engine. What's your opinion on replacing it with another one (provided i can find one in decent condition). I was also thinking of putting in a bigger engine if i'm replacing it.

    Would like to hear your feedback

    Why Farrukh... Shafi Ustaad has been working on your Beetles engine ever since you bought it... then how come you need to overhaul it already.

    not eversince naveed...he worked on my beetle only when i bought it...haven't been there again...that was last year

    I didn't get the engine overhauled back then cause there was no need...there were issues with heads leaking compression so only that bit was taken care of.

    Now that i need to overhaul the engine, i might as well go for a bigger engine for that ooomph!

    what is your original engine? as long as it is not a 1200 you will not require major mods to fit a 1500 or 1600 in it. however if it is a 1200 you'll need to do minor bodywork to the engine bay to make any of the larger engines fit. a few years ago there were piston & sleeve kits available throughout pakistan and even i took my 1300DP to 1600DP (had to find used heads) but the transition was painless.

    my suggestion would be the 1500 "H" engine if you intend on using her as a daily driver as it is a very good block and handles temperatures VERY well. i think the 1500 was the best overall engine in a VW type 1. however the 1302 & 1303 (specially) need a 1600DP as they are slightly heavier and can make good use of the extra torque to drive daily.

    Yes he does exist. Have ruined quite a number of bugs over the years. Although i would say that he has skill, but it was only used to "modify" the bugs. I'm a purist and hence i have a negative opinion to the guy. Plus, he is lazy. Just my opinion.

    Yup, its a 1200 and its more than daily drive :p i don't drive my other cars at all except maybe once or twice a month for a short run...

    since the bug is grounded, i really wanna get it back on the road asap. I'll look around for the 1500H engine but you know luck is scarce for good old vw engines and with the current situation in khi shershah, god only knows when i'll be able to get her back in service.

    apart from the slight performance that i'll get from a bigger engine, my main reason for considering a swap is that i run my A/C practically anytime and everytime i'm in the car and a bigger engine will obviously be able to handle the compressor load better.

    Fingers crossed!

    Thanks for your advise buddy

    Yup, its a 1200 and its more than daily drive :p i don't drive my other cars at all except maybe once or twice a month for a short run...

    since the bug is grounded, i really wanna get it back on the road asap. I'll look around for the 1500H engine but you know luck is scarce for good old vw engines and with the current situation in khi shershah, god only knows when i'll be able to get her back in service.

    apart from the slight performance that i'll get from a bigger engine, my main reason for considering a swap is that i run my A/C practically anytime and everytime i'm in the car and a bigger engine will obviously be able to handle the compressor load better.

    Fingers crossed!

    Thanks for your advise buddy
    ah, in that case you MUST have a 1600DP engine. the added torque will be ideal to handle the loads of the AC compressor and still have a car capable of being driven all day/ every day.
