That's a pretty good turnout of Citroens in a Country that hasn't had official supply since the early 1970's.
There can't be many GS in USA, let alone Estates.

That must be a special edition, any info.

Was this just an East Coast meet, in which case were most of these cars "local". Any idea how many hydraulic citroens in the USA?

Yours looks to have been the only XM, much interest?

Upper New York state , this year that was a DS safari drove up from California :o

This event is on the North East that means you get some Canadians and Americans.

I've done some research and the multi coloured gs estate is an official 1971 limited edition, "voiture sans frontieres", to represent the cars success across europe, it's not declared as an Olympics car and a quick look only shows European flags and no rings.

That must have been an expensive paintjob, only a few dozen made. Looks to be a painted up GS "Club"

Translation from the brouchure.

The citroen gs is the first car designed for the whole of europe.
For all that it brings from new, revolutionary, the citroen gs has been designated car of the year four times:
in Holland in Czechoslovakia in Great Britain in Denmark.
Today the citroen gs is on all european roads
car without borders she is at home is everywhere.

California to New York is some drive for a car show, sure beats going to your local supermarket car park...


There might have been a few more SM if Burt Reynolds hadn't stolen the keys...
