    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!...

    Aoa. Dear Nasir Do you have any stuff related to 1971 Super Beetle.
    A car for the people, an affordable Volkswagen, would bring great joy to the masses and the problems of building such a car must be faced with courage.

    The main difference between a regular beetle and a 1971 super beetle is the front suspension and the IRS transmission. I don't have anything '71 super beetle specific but if you have anything particular that you might be looking for I might be able to help.

    Welcome to the club @drkashan. I'm sure you would like your experience here as you've joined not only the most active but the most helping vintage car community in Pakistan.

    Please share the details of your Beetle such as model, motor details, pictures etc. for viewing pleasure of all the fellow enthusiasts. I am sure there would be a lot of help that you could find over here with keeping your bug in the best of its running conditions.

    If you have any questions pertaining to your bug, please just ask.

    Its a 74 type 181 Thing Speedo. The P/N stamped at the back is 113 957 023M which is the part number for the speedo casing and not the speedo unit itself. The P/N for Thing Speedo unit is 113 957 057H. The speedo cable that goes with speedo meter is 50.25inches long and bears a P/N 111 957 801H.

    This is an early European spec. (normally known as type 182 for RHD with small type 2 tail lights) type 181 Thing with long rib on the front quarter panel. Most probably a 71/72 German made vehicle. If its tranny would have been present it would have been a RGB unit.

    Although it has got wrong front fender (which looks to be a 73/74 - with prominent/larger hump under the turn signal stalk) but still very desireable. The early (72 and down) front fenders had smaller humps under the turn signal stalk just like the Type M 181 (Military version of type 181).

    Whats the latest on the documents @mahmood?

Pictures speak for her to show what condition she really is in. Its a 1970 RHD Deluxe with lots of molestation and rottening:

    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266388 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266389 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266390 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266391 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266392 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266393 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266394 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266395 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266396 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266397 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266398 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266399 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266400 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266401 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266402 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266403 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266404 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266405 Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - 266406
    The owner of this now finished DP 1500cc 70 Deluxe, a young lad, yesternight followed Patina while I was coming back after getting Patina thoroughly washed to my place.

    The guy is in agony. He bought this *gem* for a 100K spent another 100K on outlook (paint/panel beating) + motor rebuild (was rebuilt by Saleem/Ganda Nala LHR). Unfortunately the bug's molested state has grown more serious. He asked me to come along and have a look at the motor which was consistently being heated after short runs.

    I went to have a look and trust me what I saw was HORRIBLE. No rear engine tin, removed to accomodate the aftermarket generator by adding an ugly crank pulley at the lower side of an aftermarket muffler - can you imagine it? It was almost touching the ground (guy has the car dropped two clicks). DP Intake Manifold "fresh air/preheat" function was disabled as the muffler was aftermarket and had no provision for fresh air.

    To make the matter worst, the car had hit from underneath at the lowered and further lowered hanging generator causing a crack in the engine case, draining half the motor oil.

    Guy wanted my help. I didn't know how to help him unless I convinced him to return to stock setup. And so I did. But the guy is another VW wannabe knows nothing about VWs.

    Now wants a new muffler for a 1500cc DP motor, a dynamo/generator, rear engine tin and some help with sorting out the motor oil leak. If any of you could help locate the parts listed above please let me know as I would rather be more inclined to save the bug than anything else.
