    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!...

    You have to have the complete kit for this. It should bolt on in fifteen min to half hour by an expert.

    This is at Dr Sahabs Car Care Garage.

    He does amazingly beautiful restos if you can afford to spend top buck. No doubt every penny is well spent there.

    I went there a few days ago but did not see this particular bug. Maybe its an older resto? Or maybe it was at the upholstery walla??

    The car is a pre 64 bug as pointed out by Reezvan.

    The domed hubcaps do not fit the 66-7 slotted wheels. I'm guessing these may have been fit by installing OG style pre 65 clips to the newer wheels to hold the hubcaps on. I *think* they are the same dia as the 66-7 hubcaps. However if that was an easy mod, I wonder why guys abroad do not do it everyday??

    Other possibility may be that these are Porsche 356 wheels?

    I thought on this possibility for a min, but then it cant be. Not in a country where early bug wheels are getting extinct, possibility of a butchered Porsche 356 wheels is even more scarce.

    ^^

    Looked at the wheels again.....the slot's profile does not match 356 slots.....

    However, the kind of clientele this garage has, I would not at all be surprised even to see a complete 50s Porsche here.

    June 2010 Production General Jet-Air 5.60x15s have made their way to me this morning from Ahsan Qureshi/LHR. They are in pretty neat condition. No cuts, no bruises, no signs of uneven wear and a lot of tread for many more thousand miles.

    Here is what looks like to be a very potent bug for a purist. Mind you, its a 65 and not a 64 as claimed by the seller.

    The Uncle who owns this place and who supervises the work is referred to affectionately as Dr. Saheb. Well he is in fact a Phd. He has his own Beetle bought and collected directly from wolfsburg and driven to Pakistan from switzerland he even has a VW Thing.

    Nooooooooooooooo not at all the combination of cars u mention is with Faisal another guy whose cars usually go to Raheem Universal Autos. Dr. Sb. is really in a different league altogether and beleive me it is not an over blown statement.At the moment he has atmost 3 Beetle related customers .. this is during the last three years that I have known him.

    Interesting. So how much does this Dr. Sb. charge for a ground up resto with all parts supplied, say the car in question is Patina, I would want to know what would he charge for a factory spec. resto? May be you could gimme his contact in case you wouldn't know.
