    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

    Hassanazeem....I think your bug looks sky high due to the fact it is running on smaller rims/low profile tyres. I think the setup is 14 inches dia as opposed to the stock 15 inches.

    I would not at all be surprised if you find non stock coil springs up front. Some genius may have put them there for raising the car. Or maybe they put spacers under the coils for the same effect.

    Take a peek under the front fenders and look at the springs. Can you count the number of coils for us please??

    Another possibility which I cannot rule out entirely (considering what horrors we are used to seeing locally) is the use of some other cars shocks up front.
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    Doc, those are 15" Cragars and not 14... Tire profile is a bit smaller then i would have wanted but will do for now...

    As for the front suspension, its was taken out and given a complete over-haul by Doc. Khalid sb... i replaced the steering box on it too... as far as i can tell it is running on stock springs... will check again and confirm...

    Thank you very much sir, it was really a team effort with active participation of many members which made things possible.

    Dr Sabih attended one of our meets for the first time. I am glad by his observation and comment as I now think that is what people watching from the distance may have thought too. And if we are successful in promoting VWs, maybe we encourage ordinary people into owning/restoring/preserving some more??

    Please visit our Pakwheels (Karachi Chapter) page for more and also our FB page for a LOT more:
