GSA 2.jpg
Having only just registered at this forum my nostalgia plugin has just reactivated. It's great to see that there are some dedicated keepers of classic Citroens out there, especially with cars that I have owned over the years, eg GS, CX, DS, BX etc..
Was sorting through some folders the other day & found this old picture of the GSA I owned form "almost new".
It was originally bought by someone who ran the Wartburg Franchise in Cardiff. After only a few hundred miles he decided it was "too small" and went back to a CX, leaving me with a once in a lifetime bargain.
Hope the picture uploads...

Thanks for that Malcolm, I wish you luck with the front sunken GS. I see you have some other classics in your fleet, have owned those models myself. How about getting the DS on the road....
Regards, Adrian.

Looks really nice that, with some fitting period accessories too. Love the rear window louvre... 8-)

i would like nout more than getting her up on the road, but life has shoved her further and further back on the back burner :cry: :cry: [-o< :wink:

she's only been off the road around 30 years just over 5 in my ownership, engine seized solid but i plan on sticking another lump in when i get to her
