    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!...

    Nice find @shahzebulhaq. I can see you have been super busy in the land of the Dengue This one is lot more potent than the RIB-43. Now it would be interesting to know the details on this one. Like the motor/documents status/price tag etc.

    Hola!!! Fruitful hunting then? I wonder whats the condition on the carbs...are they good to go on after a service or they need fixing or would the verdict be that they are only good for parts? Get Khalid Sb.'s verdict on both of them before you decide which one to go where

    A good used piece could be bought off the Samba for USD 35-55. But its the carriage/clearance of the same that would be the major add-up factor towards the cost.

    Gone are days when we used to drop a mail to @nmshaikh and he would buy us the part we wanted in the best bargain price...and later send it through his family/friends at NO additional cost to go on our hobby cars

    Great to see the paint job starting on your 61 - (Arghhhh - Give her a name name). B/w are these the replacement front fenders on the car now? I mean the ones which you located as replacement to the ones which were mounted when ALi Akhter had done the panel beating?
