    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!...

    Well It goes like this "ATTENTION"

    I have finally got my beetle, it arrived yesterday morning... It covered the whole journey from Lahore to Islamabad without any problem, except that the driver had to stop somewhere inbetween to get the brake oil filled up... I think he didnt check it first or something...
    God Bless my Nana, the beetle had a pre-delievery inspection done and all work taken care of before giving it to me... May Allah Bless him with long and healthy life...
    Just waiting for the clouds to clear and the rain to stop here in Islamabad so that I can get the bug cleaned and take some good pictures and share it with you all...
    So far I'm Lovin' It...
    Regards,
    Arslan.

    @ devilspassion:

    And so am I!! So please do send me a msg weekly or twice weekly.

    Btw are you interested in VW mags?? Am getting requests left right and centre so if you want a copy for urself you have to stay in touch. Unless you are on th elookout for the same yourself.......


    @ funkycapricorn

    Congrats!!

    I'd rather have the pics now......a dusty/muddy dirty VW just arriving after a thousand mile trip, drenched in the rain, 'as found'.......the list goes on.....LOVE these kind of pics...

    So dont blame the weather gods and snap away at whatever is there..

    To myself at least a wet VWs curves in the rain is far better than ****!

    the beetle enthusiast kicked in today as i saw a purple (pre 67) which fell into a ditch and another (post 67) trying to yank it out. i tied its front bumper mount to my surf and engaged H4,. was out in seconds.

    when i went to untie the car the guy asked "why did you decide to help me?" and i said, "i'm a VW enthusiast",.. it felt good.

    @ funkycapricorn

    Forgiven till the 17th!!

    @ Storm

    WOW!! That must have been some sight!!! Let me guess?? No pics??

    Im just imagining a poor purple bug in a muddy snowy ditch being pulled out by a post 67! What a sight!!

    Btw I must mention here that pulling VW by the front bumper brackets is not advisable. VW recommended the front beam (not vey easily reachable esp in a car in a ditch) for this purpose.

    Did not mean to pull your marvellous efforts down though!

    Keep it up!!

    I was with Safeershah yesterday and we went on a big adventure trip!!

    Saw the Oval bug, 56-57 Micro, 74 bug and went snooping around Basit denters yard looking at the other projects.

    Also saw part of Safeer bhais collection of spares!! Ahem ahem!! I think some of the really juicy small bits were kept out of my sight!! Reasons anyone can understand!!!

    Almost got a heartattack seeing all these things. The Micro has SAFARI windows, something I saw for the first time in Pakistan. Even abroad these are rare and higly desirable. And expensive.

    The Oval project is in the final stages now. Cant wait to see it out of the paint booth. And those 18 inch alloys look brilliantly suited to the car. Has to be seen in person.
    This should come on the road as one of the countrys finest.

    The 74 has an AC and a power steering setup, the later I have seen or heard for the first time. The battery was out of the car and I wanted to see it running to have a feel of both the setups.

    Btw the 74 and Corona pics were shot in almost total darkness, I could not even see the frame I was shooting, literally shots in the dark!!

    The corona is one clean gem with unique alloy rims. Check it out in the pics on the VCCCP thread.

    Saw Dellorto carbs for the first time in Pakistan. I know more than a few people who would beg borrow and steal for those!

    The white 1303-S belongs to a friend of Safeer. It is the same car which had been rebuilt a long time back by the owner of Mehran Sugar Mills, adding a few custom touches. Thankfully these have been reversed and the car is sporting a factory fresh look again.

    Want to thank Safeershah bhai for a great day!
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!
