    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

    Turns out that 9 out of the 16 case studs had come loose (threads stripped) but amazingly the beetle chugged on (leaving behind a trail of oil )

    The club decided to give the Spinal Beetle a true Pakistani memento. It was Sameer's idea and was unanimously adopted.

    Yeah true, beautiful but just on the outside!

    Last time I checked a photo of the front wall/under dash posted by @shahzebulhaq on the FB was disappointingly poor job on the interior.

    @shahzebulhaq believes it was "work in progress" photo though. Still waiting to see those 'under the fender/luggage area/engine bay/front wall' pictures which @shahzebulhaq promised. Will form my judgment about IRFAN once see the mentioned pictures.

    B/w @shahzebulhaq is this the angle or what because I see the front left fender kind of out of shape in this image. The fender's semi-circle should be consistent with the round shape of the wheel

    Plz define CATLOOK? I hope its not "Black painted patched front wall without grinding the welds" because thats what I was referring to about lousy interior paint job.

    If you are about fenders being out of shape after one spends say a 100K on the panel beating & paint job, I would rather stay away from spending 100K to acquire that CATLOOK you are referring to and would stick to RATLOOK without a penny spent coz mother nature is way better a creator of the look than any painter/panel beater
