    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!...

    Aleem,
    In response to yr lead on the For Sale VW K70, I DID go to the link, and was in for a surprise! In what must be the CHEEKIEST bit of copy I have ever read on PW, the owner says, listen to this: My family has had this car for a long time and I want to sell it now. It looks dusty but overall its in FINE condition and engine is still in FULL capacity. Only back side was hit Few days ago so people who like antique cars should contact.

    Has anyone seen the state of the poor car? This PW member should be tarred, feathered, and then run out of town on a rail. Lying little GIT! Or do I mean SHIITE!

    X, been to Karachi a couple of times on mine. No issues at all. Nasir Shaikh has been up to the Chinese border via the KKH. We also did a group drive to Naran some years ago, 2003 to be exact.

    sweet - I drove my 1302 to a few cities in Sindh and even some in Balochistan too, I loved the suspension movement and handling, not to mention the more than ample torque the 1600 DP shoved out.

    People used to stare in disbelief at an aircooled VW bug passing their corollas at 65mph - sweet memories.

    Mr. President , Vice President & VWCOP management committee,
    Can we please have something similar???
    A nominal membership fee can help many if it’s used for arranging regular shows, seminars with rare parts available there that can be imported from the fund…
    Please don’t mind if all has already been considered / worked on previously.. I was just thinking out loud for the club.

    Shahzeb, this member is looking for a clean 45 yr old car , and has no budget. I understand one can get a clean shell for around 50k, but a running car costs way more than that. A VW that has got all the right mechanical parts, plus new tyres, and good upholstery, that not cheap any more!
    Clean restored, or very original cars always come out costing less in the end, and lets not forget the time, blood, sweat and tears, not to mention numerous roadside breakdowns "project" cars 'present' you with!
    Quality tells long after the price is forgotten.

    Dear Romano,

    I may be not the right person to talk much about the Beetle that we all love... but I guess we all can have one BEETLE that suits our budget... I am not talking blind.... ppl have got beetle for 50 k then restored it (not to the perfect quality but decent) and the cost was around 100,000 to 150,000 in total ... they are running good..that is what I am looking for too....

    just to get decent denting and paint job...

    now denting is for 50k and for 20k

    paint job is form 10k to 50k even more maybe....

    parts all new german or maybe second hand in good condition.....

    so when i visit the workshops I see many examples where ppl have cars less than 200k ...

    maybe I have come to the wrong place and demanded some wrong things..for that I APOLOGIZE to waste any of the respected memebers' time..


    warm regards

    fired up the 1303 after a long time (3-4 weeks), she was a little low on oil and need a quick cleaning of hte plugs etc. was great fun to drive after so long but i was thoroughly disappointed at the fact that it took quite some time to warm up (though this is a great sign on an aircooled car - means my fan/oil cooler setup is bang on)

    also i REALLY need to get the 34 carb on her as the performance is dead when i compare it to a modern car. god knows when i'll have time to finish both my VW projects....

    Smile Back in Action...just retrieved today - 1963 Bug

    Well...here she is!

    Bought this '63 Deluxe Bug from Lahore, brought in on a car-carrier and arrived in ISB yesterday, after spending more than 20 years in Lahore. Went today to pick her up and saw her for the first time.

    As her former owners drove her exclusively on CNG for over a decade, the fuel system was predictably dry and couldn't get her to start, so I ended up towing her home.

    My heartfelt thanks to Shahzeb for negotiating the deal, Sultan Sb in Lahore for completing the purchase and Maaida for arranging the whole thing.

    As it turned out, the car is pretty good...worth the frantic effort.

    Stay tuned: more pics coming soon!

    @Mhawan

    Don't despair. Although it isn't as easy to get a good VW within a reasonable budget as it used to be, have some patience and the right thing will show up sooner or later: my own experience from many years.

    There are enough cars in PK. Do bear in mind that you may not be able to find exactly what you want very close to home, so be prepared to travel further afield.

    In the meantime, there is a very nice looking '66 1300 Bug in ISB (beige) IDA no. for sale in the classifieds section. Check that out.
