I’ll let the photo do most of the talking. Just a brief introduction. These cars belonged to Fatima Jinnah and are now rotting at Sindh Archive offices in Clifton Karachi. Photo is taken from Trekearth.

    does any wanna start a “Electric Car business” with me….

    its really amazing…. you can convert any car in less than $7000 thats 560000 Rupees.

    all you need to do is

    1. Throw away the Engine….

    2. Put Batteries and a Motor……

    Never worry about Patrol or Diesel or CNG …. or changing Oil…..

    I have Toyota 2.oD and i put almost 2800 Rupees on Deisel every week….. thats almost 12000/month…. and I dont use this car that much…. and I have to think about how expensive its getting to use my Car…..

    you drive your Car for free….for the rest of its lifetime…..

    – 10 Minutes of Charging give you over 100 Miles
    – Speed upto 100 miles/ hour..

    The process is so Simple, People in USA and Europe are doing it in their home…. who have no mechanical background…..

    see for your self …. search ” Home Made Electric Car ” on Youtube.com

    any one interested reply to me…

    also charging your Car for the whole month cost less than 600 Rupees….

    Thanks

    we didn’t took care of the country whi ch they gave to us all…cars are something much smaller than that..but seriously this brings tears to my eyes..
    it should not meant to be like this and somebody should do to something to protect these assets.

    These are part of history. Some car enthusiast ought to take up the project and restore them.

    Fatima Jinnah was a leader in her own right. After all it was she who brought together Pakistanis from East and West and from all walks of life and political ideologies (even Ghaffar Khan supported her) in 1965 … Had she been allowed to succeed she would have gone down in history as a greater leader than even Mr. Jinnah.

  5. I agree with all those who want re-furbishment of these cars having an historical attachment and thereafter can be put on display either at Mohatta Palace or at Quaid’s museum. It can only be called a cruel apathy on the part of the subsequent governments since Ms Jinnah’s death, on one hand and the managers of Quaid’s properties, on the other.
