    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!...

    @nightsurfer

    it was a strict speedster when i sold it with a vinyl back seat cover for when they were not in use (helped force air into the engine bay), I heard from the dealer i sold it to that the next owner WELDED a softtop frame to it,... killed me to hear that, specially since i paid so much attention to the speedster look (chopped windscreen etc)

    I was once a proud owner of this car. Unfortunately very few people in Pakistan respected the esteem of the car and called it as *DUDOO* car.

    Here is some info about the last Beetle produced, in Mexico.

    On Wednesday July 30 2003 the last Beetle left the production line at Volkswagen de Mexico in Puebla. The Mexican workforce gave a festive farewell for the 21,529,464th Beetle with flowers and mariachi music. The best-selling model will now make a last journey over the Atlantic to Wolfsburg where it will have a place of honor in the Automuseum.
    At 95am Mexican time the Beetle production line was stopped. This signalled the end to almost 68 years of a unique success story in global automobile history. In recent years Mexico has been the only country in which the legendary Beetle, known in Mexico as the "Vocho", was still in production. The Beetle made Volkswagen world famous and was seen as a symbol of Germany's economic upturn.

    In a short address, Reinhardt Jung, Chairman of the Volkswagen de Mexico board of Management, thanked the Mexican staff "who had not only worked in the production of a car but also in the creation of a legend. A legend that would endure in the hearts and minds of all people for whom the Beetle had been a companion on their journeys".

    The last Beetle is an Aquarius Blue "Ultima Edicion, has a 1.6i petrol engine, and delivers a power output of 34kw. It has chrome strips and chrome exterior parts, such as bumpers, hubcaps, and mirrors. Colour coded wheels. The "Ultima Edicion" emblem on the glove compartment lid, and the Wolfsburg emblem above the engine compartment lid round off the look.

    The limited-edition "Ultima Edicion", of which only 3,000 have been built had been very well received by customers and was practically sold out, said Jung. Only the last Beetle was not for sale and would be taking up residence in the Automuseum in Wolfsburg.

    The Beetle has been produced in more than 20 countries worldwide. In Germany alone, where production ceased in 1978, more than 16.2 million Beetles were built. In Mexico, where production of the "Vocho" had continued uninterrupted for 39 years, almost 1.7million have left the factory.

    no matter what they do with the new beetle, it'll never be an icon like the original.

    BTW i think Wolfsburg is now called Golfsburg,... very odd,... very german!
