    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!...

    Has the previous owner/s installed an AC condenser beneath the spare wheel tub?? The round inspection plate has been deleted and the area raised. The front grille in the nose is probably a Bay Window Micro item.
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    Refreshing to see one that isn't shiny. An old VW should look like an an old VW. Is that a '60? What colour is it, Jade Green or Mango Green?

    I don't suppose you're minded to sell for the right price, but if you are, please drop me a line at aoshahid@live.com. I'm a discerning buyer and I don't mess around. Cash on collection promptly arranged, wherever you are. Thank you.

    Good luck! Kashif
    A car for the people, an affordable Volkswagen, would bring great joy to the masses and the problems of building such a car must be faced with courage.
