We bought a 1971 Citroën GS and drove it for 14 days through Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, north western Italy and France, putting over 4500 kms on the car.   It was purchased from Garage de L’est in The Netherlands.   I wanted to give my wife, Marijke and my parents a memorable driving vacation! Since we flew into and departed from Paris, we made arrangements to have the car delivered and picked up there.   Paul Stedehouder of Garage de L’est delivered the GS by trailer and unloaded it for us right at our hotel.   I simply turned the key and we were off!  The GS performed great and we drove it everywhere without reservation, as the following pictures show.
