    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!...

    No he doesn't, sorry, he has got only one steel wheel that you could see in the trunk and thats all. All other four are alloys, 04 lugs.

    The Stinger looks pretty weird in my personal opinion, a side exit exhaust looks much better I would most probably go for a side exit exhaust with custom headers after I drive a bit on the stock exhaust system.

    Default VW Sighting

    Now then, it seems Multan is somehow being flooded with all kinds of bugs these days...the BUG FEVER is catching up with guys here and one could see quite a few new bugs in town. Here is another one caught up on cam (not too clearly though) yesterday at Iftaar time while I was heading home. It looked to me a 74 with registration number RIJ 4927 was very well kept as she kept cruising ahead of my cultus all the time and even after quite a bit of trying I couldn't catch up with the drag of the flat 4:

    1970 1200cc Deluxe - seems pretty "complete" except instrument panel (Japenese steering wheel/column)
    Registration Plate Karachi (K-5936) - Both Engine & Chassis Number are Matching and Correct to the year
    Silver & Black (Has lots of filler)
    IS Start and On Road but motor is @ 40%/45%
    Radial/Alloys
    Tax paid till June 2006 (6 periods short @ 1300/period)
    Floor all rotten/under hood & spare wheel well all rotten
    Has new computerized registration book with complete return file in tact
    Owner Asking Rs. 50,000 (his purchase price is 40K)

    Here are a few pics, in case anyone would be interested drop me a PM for contact info of the person who now has the ownership (Kabari). But if you could make up your mind, please BE QUICK coz I dont think he would wait for anything more than a couple of days:

    Update: Another is wasted!

    This unfortunate bug was sold to a mechanic who is going to make a gen. set out of her flat four with the body going to choppers.

    Have had my hands not been full with couple of VW projects, I would have saved her myself but somethings I see, are just not meant to happen

    Nope, no pics with me but maybe romano has some. As for the knob, get one machined here from a solid piece of metal.

    Had an unusual visitor in today. Carried out some routine maintenance, cleaned spark plugs, change axle boots, refilled gearbox oil, and plan to do the rest tomorrow. Change gear lever nylon bushing, install missing access plate (under front bumper and another under rear seat, ), change engine oil, clean oil filter, service both oil bath air cleaners, and so on. Poor car just seems to have received zilch maintenance from the previous Khii owner. Impulse buy I suspect.
