    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

    Ustaad Rafiq was involved in a road accident of his motorbike a couple of months ago, fracturing his right wrist. Things have been laying low on the swamp cooler since then. But I guess I will check with him tomorrow on the latest, since now you have reminded me.

    Now I seriously find PWs lacking in providing the "DISLIKE" button.

    This guy on Olx has a Type 2 up for sale, it looks like it's a local chop-up project I however could be wrong. He calls it a 'antique chand gaari' .

    Here's the link for the ad.

    pls decide amongst yourself who is going to call him. Too many calls and he would shoot up the price

    I called the owner and had a long chat. The bus has been parked for donkeys years and he claims the museum people once contacted his grandfather to buy it.....(I want to know what he smokes but that is for another time)

    I have a feeling that the bus would either be sold for a ridiculously high price or the opposite. I'll try and visit him the next time I am in Lahore to take better pictures and maybe talk some sense..
