    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!...

    excellent coverage of the meet and glad to se the page is still going strong.

    the latest car (the red rat) is one hell of a looker! no doubt he's built a great looking car and has pulled off something that i know that KP and myself would have loved to have done.

    who's the owner?

    as far as i know you cannot get moulded carpets for VW's anywhere in PK. just for the local cars (hondas, suzukis & toyotas etc).

    if you're looking for the highest quality VW carpet (german square weave) then it is best you check out a company called TMI, nobody can match them (commercial) thought there are a few people in germany who still have original VW carpet pieces which would be crucial if trying to restore a split window.

    i'd suggest you just go for pieces like the car came with from the factory, for that you can contact Ishaq ustaad in pindi on 03215833188. he's done my 1303 & 68 delux, i've had no complaints till now with his workmanship. he's a little expensive but still i think it's worth spending once and doing it right.

    Ustaad Ishaq is surely a good hand. He surely is touch expensive but I have had my 1970 done from him in 2004 and I too dont have any complaints what so ever till date.

    been busy this sunday, i present to you "the impostor" (read the plate).

    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -222911

    it's a 1969 1500 deluxe, and still with the original owner (since new) and all numbers are matching with the original book. Romano came over to the owners house last night for a quick once-over,.. now the hard part of sourcing parts...

    http://www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/...ing/bug_66.jpg
    This would be from a 67 as the 67 came with the headlight dipper switch in the arm (as opposed to it being controlled by the foot) (another of the 'firsts' the 1967 model year came with..)

    The assembly of this switch is not a very complex operation but it helps if you remember what it looked like when you opened it. I see that you are in Karachi but if you want and can send it to Islamabad to Romano or one of the club members Khalid electrician is an expert in renovating these. He has a box full of switches that he uses for parts and I am sure he can put together a working assembly for you.

    If all else fails let me know and I'll send you a used one from Canada for about $25

    Buddy i drove to Khunjerab with my wife and three kids ...Khunjerab is about 15,500 ft and i don't think it gets any hilly than that. The car went and came back like a charm..we crossed many landslides, on our way up and a massive mud slide near Kohistan on our way back....like a charm!!!
