Karl awesome pictures.

That orange performance modded Beetle looks Avelarish. Is it from his garage?

More than no white Bug, I'm surprised there was no yellow Bug! Actually a white and a yellow were scheduled to attend but couldn't make it.

Must attend to a wobbly wheel and a nasty oil leak, but otherwise she should be good to go. Winter time.

Interesting to see how each of the Beetles present is different in its own unique way. Congrats on your lovely bug. Bet you spend the entire of Sunday cleaning her & getting rid of any spot of rain.
This was the first time with me that the car saw rain, but I couldn't miss the opportunity.

My car is fitted by Amby tyres, hence the taller appearence.

How did you manage without wipers btw??

Oh, and now that you're earning I think you CAN have a go at importing atleast parts like these for your bug! In case you're unable to go about it, you know whom to count on for help!

Default Beetle Club drive to Volkswagen plant, Pune

FANTASTIC pictures Karl.

What a lovely lineup and variety of colours. I am really tempted to look for a beetle now and these pictures have ignited my passion to own one.

I could just keep ogling at these beauties all day without getting tired.

The cars look amazing, they look all the more beautiful in the rain. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I feel like buying all of them, but I might have to sell off my organs for that!!

Hi Karl,

Thanks for the great pics & the explanation to why Shrivz and me saw so many Beetles on the road while going from Poona to Bombay on that day. !

Great pics,
Cheers

Incredible thread, just wow. Made my Sunday evening brighter, both figuratively and literally. That bright green Beetle is a real head turner for sure and that orange modded one...wow, I'm just in love. Amazing.

Lovely pics, thanks for sharing. Shame I couldn't attend.

Was heartening to see that from the last trip we made 2 years ago, 2 cars have been completely restored.

Both cars done by the understated and humble GOD of the Indian Beetle scene Anoop Thakoor. One of few guys who is really passionate about cars and their well being more than anything else, goes to show that when one comes from real pedigree a rare phenomenon in India these days it COUNTS. There is hope!
