    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!...

Anybody might having interest in buying it may contact him. He is in Karachi, and will sell it only someone in Karachi. You can directly contact him. His name is Islamuddin, Contact # 0333 3781430.

    went out with KPsheikh a few days back and caught the following car being "modified":
    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -195660 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -195661 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -195662 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -195663

    then we saw this one in G-8, looked like a daily driver AND it had it's original roof lining in it still.

    letting go of such a beauty must be hard, but i guess for the right price you might be tempted. as for the other car, thanks for the update. We also caught a rare oddity in F-10 markaz that friday,.. and it took KP a few seconds to realize how the following car was VW related:

    Are you sure this one is a VW item? as the carb for a beetle would need the fuel line to be facing left (towards the coil). this one seems to be facing the fan shroud.

    @asad
    any ideas which carb this is? i can't make out any of the markings on it.

    Thanks storm bhai for everything. If you know anybody in need, inform him. I deep heartedly want this part to be owned by somebody worthy of it, rather than lying idle in cabinets of my mechanic.

    as those mercs are quite desirable to collectors it's possible that someone from the VCCCP would be interested. CLICK HERE

    Oh, I called up the guy in person who had this one and he took half an hour & a second call, yesterday, to confirm me that it was 34PIC"T". But then @AsadIshaque told me too that it was not anything like a 34PIC"T" Carb.

    I am sure @Storm is right and so is @AsadIshaque but then the guy knows nothing about the thing he is selling, even after specifically looking at the physical Carb he couldn't tell if it was a 34PIC"B".
