    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

    @DP, I've got a tow truck, remember?
    But I rather not tow it...

    @ dp

    No I have not been to the seaview side since the last rains.....your statements make me cringe at the thought of coming your way now......ironic that the streets of Bath Island resembled some developed country now that the storm water drains have been put in.....otherwise we would be boating even till today!!

    @ Romano

    Please post pics of seatbelts preferably in a new topic. The link you pmailed me left me clueless....would like to see the design to finalise my purchase decision.

    @psyborg

    Dude why dont you throw up a new topic regarding the clutch issues?? Would be nice...adn then u could post some pics when you finally get the work done after your exams.

    DP is right. The bug should not be driven any distance unless you know what the issue is.

    The clutch bearing (single!) mentioned by Syed is the throwout or thrust bearing. Usually it acts up by making noise similar to what a worn wheel bearing makes......

    You need to run a series of checks....some I mentioned already....

    My red 68 goes 'into the werks' tomorrow morning InshAllah! Will throw up a new topic for that. You do the same.....enough trashing of our fan club!!

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

    @au, The split is near People's chorangi.

    The owner has left the car to rot. The body is in oretty good nick, it hardly needs any welding.

    The engine has been replaced with a diesel, and a LOT of cutting has been done in the engine bay to fit it.

    I have told a mechanic who works nearby and knows the owner to ask the owner to contact me as soon as possible.


    I was interested in the car, but you can have it if you want!

    Would an air-conditioning system be compatible with a beetle. i was wondering lately to have one fitted in my bug. How much would be the estimate cost? A car without an AC is pretty tough, specially in ramzan.
