    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!...

    Previous owner Secretary information(Naseem Ahmad) in the '70s? If I remember correctly, this gentleman had two. The second was/is white, and is probably still around. Last seen a couple of years ago in the blue Area Islamabad. Reg plate 6161.
    Would be interesting to photograph them together

    it would be amazing to find a forgotten beetle stored in someones garage. Romano and I found one in Rawalpindi that had an inch of dust and while the interior was all original it had wall to wall cobwebs. Turns out the car belonged to the late father of the people and they couldn't decide what to do with it. Restoration was not their forte, driving it was not a priority but they just wanted to hold on to it as Abba ki nishani..

    ah yess...storing a nishani till it rusts to the ground is always better than giving it a loving home and seeing it out on the street every now and then i always say!!

    exactly our point. Looking at the way 'Abba" maintained the car in his life, I was sure he'd be turning in his grave

    The Samba:
    VW Fact # 281: In 1965, chromed bumpers received a coating of copper plate followed by a coating of nickel and two coatings of chromium.
    Does anyone know what was the chroming scheme before 1965? May be just a coating of nickel and two coatings of chromium (copper plate coating added in 1965)?

    Not a clue about your question. But this just gave me a question of my own...cant we get this exact step by step process followed here in Pakistan and get good quality chrome done on our bumpers...it might cost us, but then again, the last chrome lasted 40 years...so its worth it really...no?

    Thats exactly what I am working on therefore you see the question here buddy.

    A while ago, I posted a few comments discussing chroming technique to be replicated. You might want to read about it in previous pages, recent ones.

    WOW original Safari windows! I hope you got them with the bus. The bus looks fairly complete and compared to your other projects should be relatively easy to put back on road. Best of luck!

    How about the papers and the previous owner(s) history and history of the bus itself?

    What about the glass? Is all the pop out windows/windscreen glass there and intact? And the suspension bits? What about the motor? I believe its going to be something of later era...may be a 1300?
