    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

    The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it.

    There are several shops that claim to perform miracles but none that does a half decent job. All they do is nickel plating so it shines when you take delivery and is dull by the time you get home. However if your bumpers are too far gone you may want to get this treatment so the appearance is improved even if for a short time. You may consider dechroming altogether and getting the bumpers powder coated inside and out.

    i would love to get them powder coated but the thing is that the rear bumper is in a perfect shape so i dont want to destroy that and it might look odd if one bumper is chromed and other has powder coat. :/

    Yes it did but they were original and the placement was low as you can see in the picture. This is the case of putting the tail lights of a 1974 (elephants foot) on an early model beetle. Besides the Samba had other features like the trim on the side and most important ...the original Golde ragtop

    Thought I'd share my current VW (no she is not air cooled). It's a late 2013 Touareg R-line.

    I saw a trekker 181 (lhd) which had its rear lights in the wrong place and was painted to look lie a radiowagen,... but it clearly drove perfectly. By the time I fathered my jaw off the floor it was too late to get a picture of it.

    The Karmann Ghia is coming along nicely..drove her to Pindi today as the smaller bits are going to be fitted in the days to come. Its hard to concentrate on driving as the thumbs ups and the praises (plus, at the lights ..yeh kon si gari hai?..yeh kitney ki hai? and the perpetual.."bechni hai"?) from fellow road users are never ending.
