    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

    fedd, storm, psyborg, et al.

    i am looking for left and right torsion arm links, and quite a dire need at that. can people here ask their mechanics, etc for these parts. non-repaired ones with no cutting/play would be ideal.

    here is a link for a picture of the part, i dont know what local mechanic lingo is for the part.

    http://www.wolfsburgwest.com/cart/DetailsList.cfm?ID=111405351

    http://www2.cip1.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=VWC%2D111%2D405%2D3 51

    and if we're on the topic, i could use four torsion arms, two upper and two lower. also known as control arms.

    thankyou.

    @ funkycapricorn

    Gift from Grandpa?? Now thats sweet!

    Let us know what happens in your beetle saga. Is the 66 in running order or a basket case by any chance? Asking because if its been standing for sometime, might need some TLC we could guide you with.

    Best regards

    So my guess was right......this would not be an uncut diamond, rather a jewel that may need a bit of polishing!

    Dont forget to shower all your love on grandpa and remember him in every prayer for a long and healthy life.

    Waiting for an update soon. Before that, best of luck for your exams!
