    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!...

    It was unexpected. I was at sajid's place and took it for a ride

    The ride was really really fun! it had a 1600 dual port whihc felt powerful and Im wondering about the performance it would give on a Beetle!

    one of the last things i spotted in my defender:

    it's 100% original and seemed to have just been imported into PK... probably an embassy workers car but a pakistani was driving it with a "gori" passenger.

    @ Storm bhai,

    Is that convertible for sale?? Or is that gori single????

    Im drooling over this.......as far as I know there is a 67 original convertible in ISB.....restored by its owner who was in touch with me a while back......helped to locate a few parts for him but then he disappeared......

    This one looks like a 65-66. From what I can make out.....wish you had dipped the headlights of your Defender.

    The bright red bug posted by DP is too cool. Great car. The black 64 covered in layers of dust used to be a daily driver but sadly now parked at the beach front to rust away........God help these poor bugs.....

    Asad
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    @Storm...WOW!! What a beauty! I've only seen ONE other convertible Beetle in Pakistan, a '65 from memory at the Convention Centre show a couple of years back. This also looks like a late 60s version, stunning. Wish I could get my hands on it.

    @Devilspassion...where in Khi is that old-looking rust bucket you just posted standing?? Loc. please!!
