Anyone know anything of this GS' history? Given the year, the side-marker light and the blue-on-yellow plates, this might have been one of the cars Citroen USA imported and federalized as test-marketing/experimental vehicles in the early 70s before deciding not to sell the GS and ultimately pulling out of the US market.

It'd be very interesting to know, I bet it hasn't ran in years and would be a huge money pit.

i bet you're right, but for what it's worth, today i noticed the cars had traded spots on the curb.

Very cool... it probably traded places with the DS to avoid being impounded. If the owner ever wants to sell it, I'll be in the market for a project European car in a couple years, am in Eugene and am one of probably very few Citroen fans in the state.
