The Old guestbook 1998 - 2011

Underneath you can read what people had to say about the GS/GSA Website. May I thank you all for you're wunderfull stories and compliments! This is really a motivation to keep up the site. And I enjoy very much reading you're stories about you're cars! Note that I haven't kept a guestbook from 2002 - 2004 and after 2011 due to technical problems. Currently I am working on a new guestbook. I hope to bring it up soon! If you have anything to share, please mail me!

Thank you posting...there is the most extensive site I've visited on the GS! As a child I my dad owed two --both GS Pallas --- one while he was in Zambia and another while he was in Syria. I swear it must have been the only GS in Zambia back in '76. I had fun driving it on 3 wheels, thru sand and to escape from guerrillas. Haven't see a GS in the US but do see SM's and DS's once in blue moon even now.

Dear Matthys I have bought a Cottage in Bretagne which is under restauration now. The metal work is super and the car hasn't done more than 62000 km. Your site has more Cottage pics than any other general site i have found. Please tell me how I can find out if my Cottage was build at Rennes (as my 4 pcs C5 I have had) or was build at Vigo (where my present Grand Picasso was born) If you need more pics after restauration, happy to send them. Regards Menno

Thanks for the fabulous pages full of GS info and pictures. I was a member of the Dutch GS club from 1987 till 1990 and was the proud owner of a silver 1975 GS Pallas with the boxline interior. Also many thanks to Garage Hans Jorissen in Lelystad who made it possible for me to keep this GS on the road. I would love another GS, one of the best cars I have ever had, and I have had many.

Hi, We had a white 1971 1015 model whilst living in Germany in the 70's. We did thousands of happy kilometres in the car then sold it and got a bronze 1220 Club which was also excellent. Lots of our photos from that time feature the Citroen, it was our prized possession. Happy times and a really excellent car. Nice to see an interesting site dedicated to a really neat car.

Hi Everyone I have bought a GS Club Estate a few years ago and fixed the engine and mechanics. Recently I started to restore the body work. This car is a lovely car and drives exceptionally well and is very trustworthy. I drove it from PTA to JHB and back for 4 months, going to and from work while my other vehicle was broken. It would be nice to be in contact with other Citroen enthusiasts. I've got a group on Facebook where I will post pictures and info.

Congratularions. Lovely web for a lovely car. My father had a Citro?n Garage during 60?s and 70?s here in Aviles, and I rememeber that arround 1973-74(?) he must went to Madrid for weeks to learn about the new GS mechanics. Unfortunely I never own it, but I am a really Citroen fan, except VISA and LNA of course. :-)

It was like a walk down memory lane discovering this website. It would be great to find a GS is South Africa - they have become extinct. I owned 3 GS models in my younger day - 2 x 1220 Club hatches, and a 1220 Estate. This was in the late 80's and then already spares were hard to find, and relatively expensive. There was already a shortage of skilled technicians to work on these cars. No matter how advanced cars become, the the older DS and GS were years ahead, and for me will always remain the most comfortable and ergonoically friendly cars ever built. Only a person who has ever owned and driven the DS & GS models will appreciate this fact. I hope there is a South African who reads and responds to my comment. thanks for this site Manny

I have had my second GSA since 2006 and driven it as often as I can. Since I've had it I have rediscovered (from teenage Mini days) what fun driving at less than breakneck speed can be. Such pleasure to handle, such effective steering that is so natural in feel, such relaxed, comfortable, spacious and agreable motoring, it is a gorgeous car. Strange that this should be known to so few.. Keep up the good work.

I have just found your site and love it, thankyou I have learnt quite alot.

As the new registrar for the G Section of the Citroen Car Club in the UK, you may be interesed to know that the club thinks it has 207 GSAs and 80 GS cars recorded as "not scrap" but this information is now out of
Date: . About 20 GSs and 31 GSAs have been seen on the road in the last 2 year in the UK. We think that the G Section has 66-75% of all GS/A cars registered in the UK. My own cars are a 1978 GS Pallas C-matic that has done 20,500 miles and a 1981 GSA Special with the 1229cc engine. The latter is the only one that the club records show is on the road and I have done nearly 5.000 miles in it since March 2007 when I bought it. Comment by Mattijs Kemmink Hi Graham, Thank you for you're message. :) Nice to hear that there are still caring owners outthere. Although I am a bit shocked by the low numbers of GS/GSA still was a very popular car during the eighties.. From the sound of it that are two realy nice cars to own. I was aware of the 1129cc, but I cannot edit any messages... :( Regards, Mattijs

: ) i was happy when i found this site... it reminds me of gsx 1.3 with quad headlights my dad had when i was young... it was orange coloured and produced by cimos in ex-yugoslavia.. if i remember correctly it had rev counter as a standard, only left mirror, tires were produced by sava (made in slovenia, ex-yu) and were 145/80 15 size... windows were not tinted... it had 4 gears... no radio... the left doors were replaced with gsa doors due to accident... the car had an anti-corrosion treatment done when it was still new, i cant remember the

From: (something starting with d) and it did not had problems with corrosion (it was aroun 11 years old when we sold it)... he he, just remebered i have a brand new front bumper, still wrraped in plastic (chrome one, just the midle part without sides - don't know which model) and a second hand rear window... would be happy to get rid of it... anyway i loved the car, great design, timeless

Great site, ...We drove our 1972 model GS break for 18 years, where it perfectly served the family's transport needs, without any major breakdowns or failures... After some corrosion repairs at the rear, and a replacement of the rear suspension frame in 1984, it continued to serve us until 1990, where I (luckely) decided to take it out of regular service. Here late 2006, I've commenced a throughout overhaul of the body. In some months time I look forward to bring it back on the road again.

Hey all Citoen friends ! I think the Citroen GS is the most genial car ever. It's a pity that the C 4 doesen't have hydraulics, then it could almost been a replacement. I have owened only Citroen cars since 1977, from 1977 to 1997 I drove GS/GSA's. My dream is, someday, to be a owner of a GS again and then hopefully an 1975 Club, as my first Cit. Till then I drive very nice in my Xantia, but, help, it looks like a Toyota ! At last; it's nice to see the new range of Citroen's, they slowly begin to look like real Cit's again. Thank You for the site.

I've just bought a 1983 GSA Pallas. I've been driving it about like a little kid. It's one of the reasons I got into engineering. One of my uncles worked in France on Concorde and I can remeber him with his GSA, showing me how it went up and down. Fantastic. I will fully restore it to its original cvondition and keep it forever!!! I've also got a Xantia Activa. Citroen should find themselves again. They should get rid of their wishy washy management and get funky!! Fantastic engineering - unfortunately not understood by accountants and finance people.

Recently bought a GS Club as a restoration project. First drove a friends GSA Pallas and knew I had to have one. The ride is the best ive ever experienced and the steering super precise and well weighted. I love the style of the car and the interior is just superb. I like the continental cars dash and the Pallas GSA dash is the best, but I also love the conflicting avant guard styling against the sporty british style dials of the UK GS models.

I loved this car when it came out.I was 10 at the time and it seemed so space aged compared to everything else on the road.The thrumm for engine was very characteristic(based on a Panhard engine I believe).The dash was also groovy.Citroen really needs to return to a technical tour de force like the GS.

My GS... Hullo Matty! I've owned my '78 GS Pallas for over a year now, so thought I should leave something in here! GS' seem very rare here in the UK, i've owned mine since June 2000

, and have never passed another on the road (although I always give CX's and Dyanes friendly beeps!). My car is a bit of a wreck, full of niggly little faults: you have to keep cranking the starter when you fire up or the motor dies, the heater can only be switched off under the bonnet, window winders keep popping off etc etc, plus the thing always costs a fortune to repair. But I still love it. I've always driven 60s/70s cars, and the GS is the best i've owned. It is so comfortable amd fast on the motorway, even when I did a 200 mile round trip with no exhaust back box (I just turned the radio up)! The handling is brilliant too, although bear in mind that my last car was a Morris Marina... I only wish the car was a hatchback, although shortly after I got it, I went to west Wales (a 600 mile roun

Looking for a GSA for daily use/Zoek GSA voor dagelijks gebruik. As I already own a Pallas which is clearlely not for daily use and I now drive a GSA Special '84 for daily use (but she needs a lot of work), I am looking for a "new" GSA (with less work) for daily use. If there is anyone in Belgium who is selling a GSA with not too much work, I am serously interested. Call me 015/51.82.60 (answering machine if not at home). Gezien ik nu een GSA Special '84 gebruik voor dagelijks gebruik, maar gezien de auto wel redelijk wat werk behoeft, heb ik besloten om uit te kijken naar een andere GSA voor dagelijks gebruik (één met minder werk als het kan). U kan mij bellen op 015/51.82.60 (antwoordapp. indien niet thuis). Verder bezit ik nog een GSA Pallas, maar de wagen is full-option en volledig orgineel zodat ik hem liever "opgeborgen" houdt en zeer sporadisch gebruik, nog een 2CV Special die ook af en toe eens rijdt. Het echte werk wordt gedaan met een GSA Special die, zoals gezeg

Seller wants NZ$500.00 but is open to offers, so I will see what I can do.Some rust about body but nothing underneath or about suspension.This vehicle will be a great project so am looking forward to my purchase.I used to own a 74 GS semi Auto which I loved driving and of course fell inlove with this model. I also used to own a 54 light 15 Citoen in my youth and sadly sold it> great car also. Anyway will close and add this site to my favourites. Cheers till next time. Grant from New Zealand

Reactions to latest guestbook visitors By reading the latest updates in the Guestbook I was surprised that a former BX-owner was speaking about Citroën-cars rusting away. The BX was the Citroën that came after the rust-periods and just the BX was a perfect example of no-rusting French-cars ... The to Claire who thinks back at the time when GS-driving was a daily issue; try to find a GS or a GSA, do a bit of (hard) work (or find a GS which is an exceptional good condition, if you look very good, if you can spend enough it will be possible ... at least in Belgium ...). I drive a 1983 GSA Special as daily car (I keep a 2CV in my other garage just in case ...) and I have a 1980 (very early GSA, classic ignition) which I only use on beautiful sundays. The 1980 is a full option Pallas, colour : gris nacré, option "isother", 5-gearbox, boxline interior ... To be honest; now the Pallas is needing a bit of work to ensure amusing summertrips. I want to add that I am still looking fo I wish to add that I am still looking for GS and GSA's in Belgium (at reasonable prices ...). Greetings : Hugo - Boortmeerbeek-Hever (Belgium).

Tragedy I really appreciate your site; I didn´t know anything about GS before. I owned a cheap BX 19 for a few weeks but had to sell it again, although it was quite hot (the heating couldn´t be switched off :) ) Its quite a tragedy with Citroen: they invented one great car after another and they just rusted away..

CITROEN GSA SPECIAL en GSA PALLAS Just beautiful ... all kind of sites about GS and GSA. I own a GSA-Special (84) and a nice GSA-Pallas (Gris Nacré, full option, boxline interior, first model 1980). The Pallas is 'resting' for a few years now, because she needs a bit of work (some new hydraulic lines and a new fuel-pump). I'am very happy to see that people in all different countries are collecting and driving GS and GSA-models. As for the situation in Belgium; just a few GS and GSA are still seen, however it is not that difficult to get spare parts here (you just have to know where and how, some parts are even available new from Citroën-France ... if you wait long enough). For the moment I don't have much time, but I will certainly join the site back in a few weeks. I cannot even mention my e-mail adress because I'am using someone else's computer, so ... However, good site, very interesting, keep it going like that ... Hugo GS/GSA - Boortmeerbeek (België)

GS Club Break Hi, greate site for a great car! In fact, my first car back in 1982 was a white 1978 GS Club Break which I spotted on the backyard of a local Citroen dealer while riding a train... Got my mother to drive me there again and instantly fell in love! It took the dealer two weeks of repairs to get it through the technical inspection, but for me it was the greatest car ever made! Today I drive a Subaru SVX, but one of my dream cars would still be a black GSA Pallas Break with about 100 HP, spoke wheels, electric everything & A/C... :-D About 7 years ago (driving a BX 16 at the time) I even bought a GSA Break from a junk yard to fix it but never found the time to finish it properly, so the car never got a new registration :-( Btw, has anybody noticed the striking similarity of the VW Polo's side view to a GS Break? I regard that as an hommage to the most beautiful "profile" of any estate wagon ever! Christian (Germany)

Bx14E / GSA Hi, Great page! I too grew up with a GS(A), and am now driving a BX14E. it's weird, but I am in the process of doing the same mods as you are to my BX (eg rev counter, clock, spoiler, etc). the only difference is that i have the AX engine, so am looking for an AX GT to steal the carby from... luckily, i already have the GTi interior, as mine is a special edition 14. could i ask about electric windows? is it just a question of putting in the motor where the winder used to be (and obviously wiring it all up!), or is it more complicated than that? cheers, Rob (UK).

To buy or not to buy? Hello, I'm being tempted by a "C" reg GSA I've seen driving around for sale for £450.00 . I know almost nothing about mechanics but know I love the way it looks. Is this beauty too much for an amateur? Or should I just buy it? The bodywork is in brilliant condition for its age. Do the GSA's take a lot of looking after? My budget is very very small. Any help would be great! Many Thanks!

Great Website As a terminal collector of interesting (and cheap!) cars GS and GSAs have been favourites of mine for a long time. Your website is absolutely superb in content and depth of knowledge. I have a 1983 GSA Pallas which has been off the road for a few years. Sadly the rust bug is eating it, but if anyone is interested in a project please contact me. I've quite a few good panels for it, and there is a good specialist near where it is located in Somerset, England. One day I'll have enough time and money to develop the RX7 engined GS I've always wanted to do. Keep up the good work of promoting the GS/GSA. It's not only 'freaks' who think it's great: Alex Moulton (he of Mini rubber suspension and small wheeled suspension bikes) rated the GSA as the best car of all time in a Top Gear magazine survey, and that most erudite of motoring journalists, LJK Setright, thinks they're none-too-shabby either.

wat een schitterende web-site over de GS-GSA! Ik was in 1970 21 jaar oud toen ik mijn vader overhaalde om in plaats van de 'boring' Ford Cortina's die ie tot die tijd had versleten een van de eerste GSsen die er in Nederland rondreden te kopen; een witte GS 1130. Ik herinner me dat toen we ermee uit de garage wegreden onmiddellijk de fraai geboetseerde 'design' draai-druk handel aan de binnenzijde om de portieren te openen/vergrendelen er af viel en we via de andere deur naar buiten moesten klimmen. Maar wat een bekijks in de buurt! De wagen had een laag koppel en moest goed op toeren worden gehouden, anders trok ie voor geen meter. (de latere 1220 cc. versies waren op dat punt aanzienlijk beter) De door de luchtkoeling snelheidsafankelijke verwarming (of wat er voor door moest gaan) was abominabel en de wagen was al bij middelbare toerentallen knap rumoerig. Maar dit is nou typisch zo'n auto die je alles vergeeft omdat ie in alles afweek van wat gangbaar was in de seventies;

my GSA miracle As a Christian priest, I feel that I know something about miracles and my Citroen GSA is truly miraculous. If I had thought that finding one in the first place was a miracle (and I do), it is even more miraculous that I am still driving it every day despite the fact that I have not seen another one on the road in Britain in years.

My father had a GS (Basic version 1220cc) since 1977 to 1993 with 140.000 Km and a long story towing a caravan by European´s roads. After this car, my Dad bought a second hand CX break 2500TD'87 (a fantastic car but it wasn´t the same).And before my parents had a Citroen Dyane'76.

1977 GS Club 1220 sedan This is a superb site - congratulations! My wife and I have had our GS for 2 years and just love it - it makes me happy just to look at it parked outside our house! It is a pale metallic green, with "BGW" plates - our "Beautiful Green Woman"! Sadly, a vandal decided to jump on the bonnet a couple of weeks ago - it will cost $500 to replace, refit and respray. Oh well, she's worth it! Otherwise, the car is in excellent condition, apart from a little bit of rust at the bottom of the front passenger door and at the top of the boot hatch. One of these days I'll get that fixed up. Without a doubt, it is the best car I have ever owned (I've had 2 Triumphs, a Saab, a Fiat 124 and a Peugeot 404) and I hope to keep it for ever! Although the new Citroens look a little boring compared to the glory days of the DS/GS - if I'm ever forced to buy a new car, it would have to be a Citroen. Cheers, Miles

Yugoslavia GS Hello, thank you for these car pictures and for engine technical data. I like GS also very much. I suppose that in EU this car was forgotten, but here in Serbia we have still lot of those cars. I am not sure if they were made in Slovenia or in France but if you are interested to buy some GS or GSA car I think that area of former Yugoslavia will be best place for that and especially Serbia today, because due to high standard (for communist countries)in '70-ties we bought lot of those car and due to low standard in '90-ties we still drive GS and GSA, and price of such car here is about 500 euros. You can write to me on tassa@eunet.yu if you want and I can send you advertisements from Belgrade newspapers to tell you exact price if you are interested.

double lives Thanks for the time you put into your GS/GSA page, I found it usefull. I too am a student and wish to own a GS/GSA. However my first car was a Honda (the shame I feel). Here in Australia the BX is generally more expensive than the GS. The cheapest BX 19GT's are around $1800 Australian dollars while a cheep GS club sedan is around $800. Then again restoring the GS might be more expensive than the BX. Why do you think there is a difference? Thanks again Sam

G.S.A best small car ever I own three Citroens here in New Zealand.A G.S.A Club break 1983, G.S.A Pallas salon 1980 and a 1988 BX 19GTI.My first car was another G.S.A Pallas which I had restored but sadly was written off after being rear ended. This left me car less and heart broken but soon I was back looking for another. A G.S.A Club Break turned up at a local agent looking very tired but I brought it anyway . It as cost me a fortune over the 4 years I have owned it, trying to do most of the work on it my self it has also caused many a foul word not being the most easy cars to work on.Even though I think they are worth every cent.

Me and my GS Pallas Hello Citroen fans! My name is Mojca Hvala and I live in Slovenia. I am an owner of GS Pallas built in 1976 by Cimos in Slovenija. I bought it from the first owner in 1994, so I am the second one for last six years. Up to now I haven't had any special problems with it, but I had regullary checked and changed some parts to keep it in good driving condition. Two months ago I went with my familly to island Krk in Croatia to have short vaccations. Driving GS Pallas all long way along the coast was excellent, without any troubles. Reccently I had a problem with hydraulic and breaking system. Breaks didn't react enough and hydraulich pump couldn't lift the car in any level. Mechanic found out that there was an oil leakage on one of the pipeline in hidraulic system. He changed the pipeline, filled up the system with LHM oil and succesfully fixed the car.

Ook mijn vader kwam op een dag in 1981 thuis met een beige g special uit '77. Vanaf dat moment zijn we alletwee helemaal gek van die auto. Later hebben we naast twee visa's nog twee gsa's break gehad. Toen volgde onvermijdelijk een zwarte bx 16 tgi break uit '90. Ik vind je bx, zo van de plaatjes gezien er heel goed uitzien! Ik kan me inderdaad voorstellen dat een gs hebben (en onderhouden) niet te combineren is met een studie. Ga zo door, dan komt die gs/gsa er vanzelf! Groeten van Pieter Pijlman

URGENT : SAVE a GS !!! First of all, congratulations for your site. It is a great hommage to the GS-GSA which deserve it. Now, I have something that I hope may interest yourself or anybody. My brother has just bought a ZX turbo D and he can't keep (due to parking) his GS PALLAS anymore. This car as to be moved as soon as possible, so if anybody wants it, it can be acquired at only a "symbolic" price. Here are its specifications: Model GS Pallas 1976, beige, 1220cc engine, green-coloured glasses, brown tissue interior (in a very good state, with even the original smelling...), very few rust (due to anti-corrosion treatment some years ago), 85000 kms (certified), cockpit in a very good state also (even the "Pallas" sign is shining !), brand new XZX tyres, technical check passed end of april. The only thing to do to have this car as new as origin, is to de-bump 2 doors and repaint it. This car as always been well maintained, and it is too bad to be forced to throw it away if nobody

So beautiful !!!!!!! Hello everybody! I have a GSA 1299cc, 1982 , white ,and i love her! She is so beautiful!!! I wish i could show you a fotograph of her. I'll try to scan one and send it to mattysk. Here in Greece people love their cars but the gs and gsa's you can see in good condition are very few. I spent a lot of money for her but i still want to! She is like the day she was born in 1982. Don't you think it is the best car in the world ever? her brakes , her handling, her comfort, her tripping, her boxer aircooled engine,her enigmatic face, her 15' weels, her shape! EVERYTHING! I can't find a better car to replace her. And i will never do! Perfect site.

La GS Hi there, That's an excellent page you've created. My name is Drago and I', from Slovenia. I'm a big Citroen fan (Dyane, ami, 2CV, DS) and I've just bought a Gs Club 1220, year 1976. I'm trying to arrange a small collection of Citroen cars. My GS has 106800 km and it's in suprisingly good condition, no rust at the bottom of the doors, inner rear wings or, floor. Its biggest handicap is that the first owner has cut out a pair of holes from the back shelf in order to attach the speakers and a hole in the roof for the antena. However, I thing It's an excellent piece to be rebuild and restore as the body isn't rusty, has never been reassembled and it has still the first paint. The car is Slovene built with conventional headlights and, you won't beleive it, in beige colour. Take care, Drago

I am a fellow worshipper GreetinGS! I am a 19 year old boy from Norway with a 1980 GSA Club as my first car. I've grown up in a family of Citroënists. In 1980(when I was born, my father bought his First Citroën. A DS,then it was two CX, before his first heathen mischief. A Toyota! Then it was two more CX, one actually with right side steeringwheel. English version. Then it was a VW Golf, before his was back into a CX Break. Then came the time for me to buy my first car. It was a GSA. My father saw that it was a great car, so he bought a 1982 model himself. This was a little misused, so he bought a 1984 model to have as a spareprartauto. This was however so good, he registrated this instead. My uncle on my motherside have had Citroën his entire lifetime as well. All CX. My brother's first two cars was a GS, then a GSA. After that, he converted into Peugeot, still french, but... What I like the most with this car, is the thin wheels! I get the "Hollywood"-effect, screeching from

Great site! Congratulations to you for making such a well structured and informative site. Since about half a year I own a CX 25 GTI Turbo2, build in 1988, but unfortuneatly it makes more problems, than I thought it would. So, by now, I´ve decided to sell it and a few days ago I saw a GSA "live" for the first time. Because of this incident, I´m thinking about looking for and then probably buying a late GSA. From searching in AltaVista for "Citroen GS" I directly came to your site and, well , here I am and much wiser than before. Thank you for doing the good work. Continue that way.

GSA Nice to visit your site. At home we have a 1984, maroon GSA, which I'm restoring. Presently, the missus drive's a 1987 BX and I drive a Peugeot 205 from 1987. We are still looking for a donor car to finisch the retauration of the GSA and for myself, I'm looking for a BX as daily transport. Ofcourse it would be great to be able to find a driveable GSA, but they are hard to find and I drive too many Km's to be able to drive a GSA. Perhaps you've got some idea's on this matter. Keep up the good work. Kind regards, Henry

GREAT! I've found my paradise! What a page! Great! Here in Austria, nobody seems to be interested in the GS/A. It's nearly impossible to find accessoirs for my 'Jean-Michel' (GSA X1, model'83). Now, I try to contact GS/A drivers all over the world. This car was (and is) too good, too individual and too 'Citroën' to be forgotten! Looking at the dash, many people think, that the dash was self-constructed...

I am the owner of a shining and lovely white gsa (maybe the best in greece) 1982 model and really fast!! (1299cc). I 'm only 22 and our gsa was my second mother!!! My father given me the gsa in 1997 in a good but not the best condition. After some easy crashes , the car has new bumpers ,lights and shining colour. the engine 1129cc was replaced by a 1299cc in 1998

light used, with electronic distrib. solex carb.and only 70.000 km. The car has alredy done 260.000 km since 1982 byt still standing proud!!! I am happy and disapointed in the same time. The cockpit starts braking because of the sun and the "super" gasoline is dying in 2 years here in Greece. You can see a lot of gs and gsa here but in a bad condition. I have to spend a lot of money for services and to keep my gsa as she was "young". I also need a lot of time and i don't have those two things. I would like t

We are relatives !!! Hello, After visiting your site I feel like we are relatives. I was born in 1965 in Yugoslavia. My father is a mechanical engineer. His first car was 2CV in 1968. In 1970 he bought Ami 8. Since I saw GS in early seventies, I was in love with the car. My father used to own 1997 Pallas, which I drove until 1988. At that time, my father bought Dyane 6 and gave me his pristine 1980 GS Super 1.3. In 1993, I emigrated to Canada, and I left my GS with my father. The car has never been winter driven, it has original paint, 80,000KM and it is in pristine condition. I miss it a lot here in Canada. There are no Citroen's here. Thank you very much for this very special experience. Regards, Nebo

Lovely site on lovely cars Hello there fellow citroënian! I am like you a big fan of the GS/A series, and until a year ago I was the happy owner of an eggshellcoloured 1983 Citroën GSA Spécial Break. It was fairly sound, apart from the odd rust spot. However in a brief moment of insanity I decided to sell the var. Luckily the new owner turned out to be just as mad about these cars as I am. So I guess it will be taken good care of. (Puh, what a relief, another one rescued from the grave) Here in Norway we you don't actually see a GS/A every day. They are actually quite rare, primarily due to the cold and moist climate we "enjoy" Good luck with your future GSA, and once again, congrats with your excuisite homepage. Greetings from Håvar

My GS Hello again! My 1979. GS still hangs on, it suffered some minor damage about one month ago. I had to make 180 degrees turn in very bad dead-end road, so, while driving backwards I had to go off the road. There was very bumpy meadow, I forgot to raise my GS on second height position (I was a little bit drunk), so I scratched front bottom part (where hydrulic pump is). So, pump suffered minor damage, it was leaking hydraulic oil, but I didn't realize it at that very moment. After it (it happened somewhere around Rijeka) I went on 180 km ride back to Zagreb (where I study electrotechnics ). Low pressure red light went on some 70-80 km before Zagreb, but brakes and suspension still worked and I got to Zagreb safely (with red light constantly on)! An outstanding example of Citroen's endurance. I must find some time to repair the pump (or rubber hose, I still don't know). Your page rules. Keep up the good work! Luka

Sweden Well, as being an old GS/GSA owner i must say that this is NICE. Ten years ago nobody cared for these cars, they throwed them after you and I almost collected GS cars having at least eight ones at the same time... Now I drive a CX Reflex D Break -86, but if I in the future find a GS from the years before -75 I will buy it. Thanks for this lovely GS Site!

Hydraulic system Hi GSA-friends, my name is Pavel and I am living in Prague in Czech Republic. I bought my GSA Model 86 ago two years in very bad conditions and I am restorying it slowly. Within my last ride I lost about 1 litre of LHM but I drove with this absence of LHM a few km (20?). I changed after it a short rubber hose near from right front wheel and fill in LHM. However from this time will not my GSA pick up on the normal height. Please whoever from GSA-owners can help me with a wrinkle on my e-mail. GSA is in Czech Republic quite rare and exist too little of experiences. I understand english and german. Thank you for any message. Pavel

GS Very nice site indeed. Do you know that one of the reason of the Citroen road handling is the very special geometry of the front train? The tyres always turn around theyre own center, so that there reactions in the steering wheel are completely null, even on very bad roads. (It is called in french 'pivot dans l'axe'. This explain why GS (DS and SM) can have one tyre exploded without communicating any forces to the driver's hands, even at high speed. (Excuse my poor english, and once again, very nice site !).

There is hardly any other car with such a feeling of comfort. I live in austria and you can hardly see another gs on our streets. many gs rusted away during our winter times when salt was used on the streets. luckily I never drove my gs during the winter and so it is still very nice. this homepage is a great idea and it helps to keep the gs alive!
