    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!...

    storm.

    is that khalid's workshop?

    the bus seems to be a wonderful project and the fact that its at a workshop hopefully means that there are some concrete plans for its restoration. top notch. out of curiosity, what is your friend doing for parts? i assume next to nothing will be available here and the condition its in, there will be a need for a fair few things.

    @Storm, I don't recall seeing the van's pics. Please post 'em again if possible.
    And how many splits does your friend have? Is he planning on selling any? There are many people looking for it...

    @DP, busy with uni. exams, projects...
    will be done with everything by the end of May.

    The bug hasn't moved for more than 2 months now *gulp*. Will get it back on the road as soon as I get time...

    How about an all Beetle meet in the first week of June???

    @UMER127, the price surely depends on the condition of the car. Post some pics here so that people can help.

    @Anonymous caller, dude you called me a few days ago inquiring about my Beetle.
    Sorry I wasn't helpful as you woke me up from my sleep and my brain wasn't functioning fully.
    Surely if you post here I would be able to get back to you and see the car you mentioned...were you talking about a split bug??
    Do call me or post here!
    Sorry!

    @ msm

    Not much luck with the 68. Seakings has generously offerred a storage space and I will most probably take it up.

    @ psyborg

    Please dont post these pics from the www. 'Meri sehat par buray asar partay hain!'

    @ All Isb members

    I really wish I was in you city for the show. Romano wants to kill me for not coming over despite his repeated invitations and requests. Well, someday soon. Lets see.

    @ Storm

    That garage is a VW lovers dream. Soo many projects going on.......

    Is Liquids VW the same 66 you had rebuilt sometime ago???

    @ Umer127

    A 74 for 30K may be a very reasonable buy. Please post its pics here so we can comment further.

    About ACs please browse this forum a bit (if you dare to go thru the last 'few' pages!). We had a long discussion in the past.

    Please do not RUIN a Beetle by shoving a watercooled engine up its @$$. Its been done and the problems you would encounter would be more than what you had bargained for. The aircooled flatfour is a sweet unit and if anyone has told you tales about it overheating just ask that person/s to go sit on a really hot stove!


    @ Psyborg and Devilspassion:

    Young men!! You need a collective thrashing!! Dont leave the bugs stranded please. Before you know it the issues would MULTIPLY and you would be stuck with jammed brakes and what not. Please keep them running.

    Any help from my side is available 24/7 for you guys. how about we meet up this weekend if you want to discuss anything???

    Best regards to all.
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    @ all

    My very slippery denter is just about in my grasp for really digging into the 59 ragtop project.

    I will start to update my dedicated thread (if I can find it!!) with loads of pics already with me and the details.

    I hope to take things forward soon. Stay tuned!

    @AsadIshaque...
    i have not stranded my bug, its as if, it just doesnt want to hit the road!!! :p this weekend would be absolutely fine with me... cuz i need your advice on a few things...

    LOLZ @ The aircooled flatfour is a sweet unit and if anyone has told you tales about it overheating just ask that person/s to go sit on a really hot stove!

    @UMER127...
    the AC in a bug is as workable an option as in any other car available... u just need to find the right kind of setup and have a proper installation done...

    you can practically put any engine in the bug, but anything other than the original involves cutting the body to get the precise fitting and that is R@#E (as @msm puts it)...

    @asad
    yes it's the same car, we had found there was a bit of noise inside the car from the engine side. luckily the problem was a missing seal and now she purs gently. As for missing the meet,... inexcusable (just kidding). I look forward to having you scrutinize my 1303 when you get here.

    @Umer127
    watercooled engines are too heavy, if you can get a aircooled engine running correctly you'll forget about fitting a watercooled engine in the beetle for sure. If you wish to have an Airconditioner in the beetle you'll first have to have a larger engine fit so that it can handle the extra load of the AC compressor. only reason for a n aircooled powerplant to overheat is too much load or if it is badly built. BTW do note that in reality these engines are NOT 100% aircooled, they rely on oil to cool the internals and by fitting an external oil cooler you'll never have to wory about the heat.

    @au
    yup that's khalids place. the bus parts are almost all sourced. the owner is a hardcore "keera" when it comes to finding parts and stuff (he was the one to check my 1303 for me in lahore). i don't know how he does it but he manages to find ANYTHING. will keep you updated on the build every time i go there. he;s got a few van's busses etc. his latest conquest is a syncro transporter.

    @alkazar
    that is a very famous Beetle in germany, it's wona few "best of show" awards and has been in quite a few W magazines.

    I would love to hear more about this 'keera'. If you remember I have a long wishlist of parts for my 59 ragtop project. Please see if this gentleman can help me in any way.

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    best regards.
