    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

    not sure, could be worn bushes, weak steering shock, worn ball joints etc. best thing to do is replace everything over time as they'll all be overdue for replacement anyways (safety first).

    as far as the car is concerend,.. it's finished. also the car is all show for sure, i can pretty much say with confidence that the car probably sucks mechanically (as is the case with such projects)

    By 2003, Beetle annual production had fallen to 30,000 from a peak of 1.3 million in 1971. On 30 July 2003,<sup id="cite_ref-AutoMotoruSport200313_31-1" class="reference">[32]</sup> the final original VW Beetle (No. 21,529,464) was manufactured at Puebla, Mexico, on 30 July 2003<sup id="cite_ref-AutoMotoruSport200313_31-2" class="reference">[32]</sup>) — 65 years after its original launch and its unprecedented 58-year production run — which began in 1945, the year VW recognizes as the first year of non-Nazi funded production. VW announced this end of production in June 2003, citing decreasing demand. The last car was delivered to the company's museum in Wolfsburg, Germany.
    To celebrate the occasion, Volkswagen marketed a final special series of 3000 models marketed as "Última Edición" (Final Edition) in light blue (Aquarius Blue) or beige (Harvest Moon Beige). Each example included the 1.6 engine, whitewall tires, a CD player with four speakers, chrome bumpers, trim, hub caps and exterior mirrors, a Wolfsburg emblem above the front trunk's handle, chrome glove box badge, body colored wheels, tinted glass, a rear parcel shelf, and VW Ultima Edicion plaque.
