    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!...

    went to mumtaz's workshop a few days back, captured a few pics i though i'd share:

    poor car has had a tough life but it is coming back with a bang,.. do note that it has a rare "reduction gear" setup so it's pretty much a mountain goat with wheels.
    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -246547

    Been after this car since i saw it years ago in F-10,.. what a beauty!
    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -246548

    This engine will be going into my friends car,... still with the 1st owner from when it left the showroom in 69!!
    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -246549



    next day the karmann turned up at romanos place after a long hiatus,.. still looks as stunning as ever

    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -246552

    that same day i spotted this lovely 1303 parked near my office, regardless of certain things which weren't original i have to say i really liked it,... however i've been informed that it is runnign a diesel engine now

    Guys please! I can't hear it if you all speak at the same time...Ok so you all guessed it right...It is the lock plate that goes in the front wheels and locks the two centre nuts so they won't loosen on their own. They are placed between the two nuts and the wing tabs are folded on the side. The tabs are straightened when you want to remove the wheel bearing. Ideally the lock plate should be replaced every time it is removed but due to non availability the mechanics don't use it at all.

    Chk out the picture to get a better understanding of the positioning.

    @Mahmood:
    hope you will be fine and in great health. I guess you're having a misunderstanding, Javed's workshop is situated in KAMRAN market on Kashmir Road. I do have my bug but the car you're talking about belongs to one of my friend SHANE who is going to IRELAND in about one month time, that was a navy blue 1967 beetle.

    Thanks for your comments- been a bit quiet lately due to health.
    However keep my eyes on PW as I love the the MB stuff and the classic and vintage car photos are unreal.
    Kombi Konnection forum also keeps me occupied.

    I hope you are enjoying good health now.

    Yeah absolutely, the vintage car photos seem too unreal to believe but then this the heritage which people here are trying to preserve, despite the lack of the latest tech & gadgets.

    I wish you a time on PW. Please stay in touch.
