    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

    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    I 100% agree with you. My apologies to everyone. I got certain feelers and anger got the best of me.

    My sincerest apologies once again. Let us not forget that we're conneceted through this legend and we owe each other a ceratin amount of respect and love just for the sheer fact that our passion is common.

    May I suggest that we all get together sometime? Would love to see everyone's rides.

    I was browsing through the net in the middle of my office hours (as usual) and found this website, I haven't seen this site before so it seemed interesting. Heres the link:

    http://www.maggiolinoweb.it/old_beetle.html

    Please browse through and have fun.

    Anyone care to reply?

    Yaar the guy from whom i purchase my beetle parts has some very good Bosch wire sets. Probably 7 mm i think. (m not sure over this)

    He has someone in Pindi who can have the wires delivered to you.

    Give me a day or two. I'll speak to him and let you know.

    @ ALL!

    I know I am posting this request in a wrong topic...but am just hoping there might be someone who can help me. I am unable to find these here in Islamabad/Pindi and Moqeem Autos is saying that parts supplier from Karachi is gone missing.

    I am looking for few things for my VW Golf (2-door, 1987, 1.3 petrol). The parts I need are:

    1) Exterior door handles+lock (even if i can get a right side thats good enough).

    2) Clutch wire

    3) If possible fuel pump and windscreen.

    you can check avaialbility at qualityvwparts.com or evwparts.com. Perhaps you can find what you want.

    If its not avaiable on the net then may be this guy can help you out - Kashif (0300-2175745). If he doesnot have the required parts in stock, he can have them arranged from abroad.

    @ aliashrafahmed!

    thanks for letting me know that.

    yet another question any good and tested European website for buying parts? as the car i am talking (1.3l petrol) is only available in Europe, specially in UK.

    evwparts.com does not have parts for that specific model.

    the only trusted site that I've been to is wolfsburgwest.com. Unfortunately they have parts for the Bug and Bus only.

    You can search some more on the net for your Golf parts.

    This is something interesting I found on the net. Cabrios had a strengthening sill attached to the ordinary body sill for added strength and keeps the doors aligned properly with the posts.

    @Haywirehiatus, the green type 3 looks quite nice. Any chance of finding out if this car ever belonged to Dr. Akhtar Jamal of Karachi? He owned one many years ago; it caught fire at a mechanic shop or petrol pump and he sold it. It would be quite a blast from the past if I were able to trace his car, restore and hand back (he is my Phuppa)The car was originally a metallic sea green, though this car may have had a respray at some point. Any help welcome!
