    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!...

To name a few would be to make it a Karachi to Khyber Rally instead of choosing Bhurbun as the endpoint (as it sets a totally different perspective), Appointment of a Rally Director who could lead a team who would have arranged sponsorship, coordinate with media guys, scouting across the whole rally route prior to rally to only to come up with the best suggested route for cars (both safety wise as well as road conditions wise), Route Maps handouts, designated pit stops/service/refreshment areas with media presence for coverage and lot more.

    The worst part of the VCCCP rally so far was the fact that people was choosing their own routes and their own batches to rally instead of taking one single route with all the cars travelling together at all times.

    Anyone NOT going to Lahore on Tuesday is welcome to join Zohare & I on Wednesday. We'll be heading out on the motorway on Wednesday and will tie up with the rally at either kallar kahar or Bhera (depending on the departure time & their speeds). This is the last chance for VWCOP members from RWP & ISB to dust off their cars and get them out on the road for a decent run.

    Hope to see more members from VWCOP there in participation WITH their cars!!

    Also we could use the extra cars as both our cars are already full (mechanics & friends)

    Default 1973 VW Sakbayan

    Another of the very least known VWs are Sakbayans...This is a 1973 VW Sakbayan. They are based on the VW Country Buggy - and were produced in the Philippines after the Country Buggy production stopped in Australia. What do you think?!

    Ok, so this is the plan. A few of us will be meeting up at around 11am tomorrow (Wednesday the 24th) on the motorway entrance to go till chakri and drive back with the VCCCP & VWCOP guys. Anyone willing to join should bring their cars and let them stretch thier legs a little.

    No speeding, no rush, no stress,... Just a simple cruise, so no excuses!

    I am partly (or wholly) to be blamed. The guys were ready and waiting to drive off to Kallar Kahar and meet up with you but getting Sally - the 67 Karmann Vert out of her 4 year slumber took longer than anticipated. The unexpected bit was the fuel pump failure and the rock hard fuel pipes that needed to be (found and) replaced. Meanwhile Zohare picked up my kids from school, fed them and kept them company till ....anyway by the time we were done you guys were crossing the toll plaza so we decided to meet up with everyone here in Islamabad at the show.

    ....again, I am accepting part of the blame. Romano drove Sally - my Karmann convertible to the show so his car was parked at the house. I also stole his hub caps to put on my 'vert for the show so that may have been the reason.

    ...and thank you Shakeel for helping me get Sally back home from the show...can't wait till Abdullah is old enuff to drive one of the cars to the shows...
