    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

    But please also note that it takes hell lot more than just owning a bug. It means serious money and serious passion to take a bug to this level. I am sure, hardly a few among those exist today, would be able to compare to the level @nmshaikh has maintained/preserved this GT Beetle a.k.a. "Shahzadi".

    I would think of it more like the fella's commitment and love for VW bugs. I mean I'd be sceptical too if the guy had just buggered up a car with all sorts of funky body panels and lights. Here he modifies an exterior wall to accommodate a bug! We don't know what condition was this bug in prior to its "wallifixion."

    most denting was done by babar but a few parts were also done by arshad, i'll haev to ask the owner the exact amounts and get back to you on this.

    do note that each car has its own expenses, this one was (from what i recall) quite expensive as it had extensive work done to it so that it would have a 100% perfect body.

    having had to move this car once i can speak from experience, i've never been in a beetle as good as this one. the only ones which come close are romanos, Salmans & fawaz's cars.

    Thank you folks for making me gloat in these compliments. I must mention that I have really 'used' this car and while I maintained it throughout she is no trailer queen show car. I have clocked a fair number of miles and taken it places even I felt sorry for it at times in the 20 plus years i have owned it. I came very close to selling it at one time as it was my only car I did not put in storage when I left pakistan and was being neglected but thankfully was talked out of it. She'll be her old self the moment I return Inshallah.

I think if its working well you are good to go.

    The field coil in a VW alternator can be replaced eyes closed with a field coil from a Merc. If you look closely the Merc coil has more windings and improves the power output considerably. I had the swap performed in two alternators done by Khalid Electrician and the transplant was a success from the word go! However only a trained eye can pick up the correct part and i would trust Khalid to find the right one for the purpose.

    The pulley on the car also appears to be the wrong one and a non genuine item. Replacing the pulley would help but do check for play as Dr. Asad recommended/

    Good to know about the MB parts interchange possibility. I hear it from somewhere else too but did not believe right away then. Now I know it is true.

    Looks like a nice bug. Interesting color choice.

    Romano, I think this was the car u mentioned in our last chat??? I never got any email/SMS/Call from him.

    If anyone wants any beetle parts pl email me directly on asadishaque68@yahoo.com

    Funky is absolutely right,

    Both the 66 and 67 bugs had the dipper switch on the tip of the indicator lever assembly.
