    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!...

    Now THAT is an idea!!! im all up for it!!! romano can be all happi too finally getting his chance!!

    no but on a serious note, since my return, quite a few VW owners have expressed interest in going along in similar future plans if any take shape..a rally every 2 years is a brilliant idea! maybe the split can make its debut on a rally event like this??

    I like the idea of the two year'd VW rally but I am all against Pakistan's ONLY known split window beetle to be taken to such errand. It should rather be saved than to be put to test in such extreme endurance for the purpose of preserving her for future generations to follow. Just my two cents worth.

    May be @mohsinikram could participate in any of such rallys with his "Splitta" 11 window Kombi instead but then that too is the earliest alive type 2 in Pakistan?

    agreed!! she needs to be taken care of to make sure she lasts...but then again...not all are as crazy as we were...im sure Babusar is a bit rough for any bug...we can stick to asphalt or if need be minor dirt tracks and not go for proper off roading...hunza...khunjrab maybe...or other spots with cleaner roads...

    I plan to organize a VW endurance rally when there. Details closer to date Inshallah. It would be to Shindoor festival in July, starting from Islamabad, up to Chitral via the Lowari pass, Shindoor for the polo festival, then on to Gopi's, Yasin, Phunder and turning up in Gilgit then taking the KKH back to Islamabad via Besham, Mansehra, Abbottabad.....

    Only the best would complete the grilling drive.

    Are you and your VW up to it????

    you got to be ready to take a short boat ride along with your bug if you want to get to khunjerab. There is no road link as a part of the KKH is under water due to a lake formation resulting due to a massive landslide.

    I am sure by next July, Patina would be all set to endure and tread any of such errands along with her cousins. I am IN and UP for it. Count me IN. But Would we be talking families along? I want to take family along seriously.

    I like to use my cars...not a concourse 'd elegance man. Cars will survive better if they are used regularly and believe me, they are just machines and should be used as such....would love to take shots of the beautiful mountains from inside the car through the rear split windows... ..confirm my entry in my splitty...inshallah!

    Default Death by a thousand cuts...

    This Sundial camper bus was bought in Ohio US and towed back to Canada.

    Viewer discretion is strongly recommended. The following pictures may be considered too shocking for some.
