    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!...

    Speedo - Shall fit
    Bus Headlights - Shall fit if from Bay window
    Beetle Exhaust - Shall fit with little modification
    Beetle Front Seats - Shall fit if from a 1971/72 Beetle/Super Beetle
    Beetle Master Cylinder/Pedal System - Shall fit
    1303 Steering - Shall fit but is "incorrect" for your year (1971), instead buy a 1968 steering/column which would be correct for your year

    ^^^That is correct one for 1971 THING.

    @nmshaikh had the exact black steering wheel with Horn D-Ring which thankfully is booked and is to be picked up by me on a trip to Islamabad in first week of April for seeing him in person for a cup of coffee.

    It was a pleasure meeting you Nasir Bhai, thank you for bringing both your gems to Lahore. I have yet to see more detailed and well kept Beetles than those of yours. I hope you alongwith family (including VWs) reach home safe.

    Sharing some photos from the event...

    @murtaza_murti, thanks, the speedo has safely made it to me. Waiting on the bumpers to arrive in a week's time

    Here are a couple of pics as received mins ago:

    It needs a little TLC before its all cleaned and ready to go on. I hope the fuel gauge works, and if it doesn't we can always make it work somehow.

    And here are the bumpers we're talking about which are already shipped by @murtaza_murti and would be arriving soon:

    With these arriving, I would be with three sets of bumpers in my possession.

    - A towel rail set that is currently mounted on Patina but has lots of dints and dings with quite a few welds in the front towel rail.
    - A set of euro bumpers that I had bought off @shahzebulhaq some months ago which too are in a bad shape (even worse than the ones on Patina)
    - And now the above ones arriving from KHI. I hope these dont have welds on them. Ding and dints are acceptable as far as matching with overall character of Patina but welds are a big NO.
