    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!...

    cleaning & gapping your plugs, cleaning & setting the points, replacing a blocked fuel filter etc will all help the car crank over easier.

    "serivicing" (AKA washing the engine) doesn't do much for the aircooled flat4 (on the top half). best thing to do is to keep the top half (cold zone) clean and get the bottom half (hot zone) thoroughly cleaned so to prevent any blockages in the fins which will lead ot hotspots and possible overheating & engine failure.

    avoid pressure washes at all times when cleaning your engine.

    It is vintage, you could barely see one of them here in Karachi. This is what the public has to say about it ''Yeh Foxy to 20,000-30,000Rs ki chalti huwi mile jati hai, kabahar hai yeh''. They don't know the real value of the car, which is priceless.

    @ Storm

    Are dimensions of a standard 74 Beetle same as that of a 74 Cabrio. Meaning if someone wants to convert a 74 Beetle into a Cabrio can a exact and technically correct conversion be made if all the necessary components are taken from WW or any of the other good suppliers.

    It was nice to talk to you on the phone. I hope you've got an idea about the mechanic I mentioned on the phone. Looking forward to see you with a healthy Beetle.





    I have had quite an experience in getting my work done through all the mechanics you've mentioned. And I wasn't satisfied with their performance. Here is the key, you need to understand all the **** and bits of technical things otherwise they'll simply rip you off comfortably.

    As far as Saleem is concerned, he's good with engines only (As far as that old guy works himself). Do not let his guys do "Denting Painting" on your Beetle. The body guys at Saleem's workshop simply do not have sufficient experience with Beetles.




    Hahahaha well put! Dude I was stuck in some issues, will discuss later sometime with you. Well yes most of the guys here are reluctant to bring their Beetle on roads due to immense heat of summers although I don't have any problem with it. I'm having some issues with availability of parts, my Beetle's Fuel Pump got cracked (maybe my previous stupid mechanic did not bother to check its push rod before installing it, or maybe some other matter, will check it) and I'm unable to find a good Fuel Pump these days, secondly, Tailpipes are an issue in local market, I got new silencer made and I only have one tailpipe. I talked to Asad, meybe he might help in getting a few pairs from Karachi.

    And again I'd request all the Lahore members to PLEASE come and discuss on this Forum. I know many VW enthusiasts who have brilliant VWs in Lahore but I wonder why the hell they don't come up and share there experiences with us. So please, net time you call me up, I'm not gonna answer your phone! :@
