Dollywobbler's Consolidated Tat Thread

Recommended Posts

Welcome home!  Was the GSA bought from a bloke in North London?  I think I may have seen it, albeit undercover, when on parts collection duties for 320touring.

Welcome back! :) 

happy to see you have not forgotten about Autoshite! :) 

very much look forward to more fleet updates, especially with TWC of course!

very nice buy on the GSA cant say I expected that! (mostly because I assumed they would all be out of most shitters budgets by now sadly)

Would like to do a compression check, need to see why it keeps losing brake fluid, I think both doors are starting to suffer structural issues.

I was wondering if TPA (who's engine TWC now has) has actually been round the clock, it would certainly explain the engine woes you have had with TWC if that engine has actually done 110K rather then 10K!

what sort of door issues are you having? the Model 70 doors run on bobbin rollers which can seize up if not greased up, and then you can wear a grove in the bobbins, I imagine it also makes the door somewhat harder to slide open and puts more stress on it as you push it open

so I would investigate those at least as some preventive maintenance! :)

I had a random prediction that the mystery car might be a Vauxhall Senator B. Never had guessed it would have been a GSA. :wub: It looks absolutely brill and I'm a bit jealous.  :D

Looking forward to more on this and the Tercel. :)

That would be the previous, previous owner, who I'm in touch with.

Looking forward to seeing the fleet awoken... especially Elly of course!! That GSA is a beauty though!! I’ve hankered after one ever since having a go in 320touring’s one at Cannock round the car park! We’ll  just make do with a beige hydropneumatic C5 instead for now!

I'm really looking forwards to seeing your GSA adventures, I can't believe you've spent so much on a car to be honest, it must be the most you've paid for a non new car?

I've never really got over missing out on 320Touring's beige beastie when that came up for grabs for far, far less than this one.

You're not the only one...

I can honestly say I have never, ever, in my life ever seen a Citroen GSA until yours popped up on my Facebook thingymabob earlier. And I quite like it.

I actually had a dream last night that I'd sold the CX and bought a GSA.  Mine was an estate though, in a sort of metallic blue-grey colour.

You got a GSA!  Lucky sod!

So this doesn't have the usual GSA dash then?  C'mon...you can't tease us with photos of a classic Citroen and not show us the interior.

GSA is one of the cars which is very much on my list.  Must be one of the most comfortable small cars ever made too surely.

Interior (and rest of car) shown in DW's latest video. All looked lovely apart from dipped /side lights set up which confused me :)

Saw the video, love the car. I remember my step dad buying one when I was about 14. I remember thinking how weird it was. Now, I would love to have one now, just too rare and too expensive right now. One day hopefully.

Welcome back, and what a fine way to kick off further UK shenanigans! The GSA looks gorgeous, very jealous indeed. 

Let's hope the rest of the fleet can be awoken without too much trouble. Looking forward to seeing what happens with the Tercel!

I actually wrote this a very short while ago.

When this forum quotes/links back to another posting is removes the formatting. I wrote  "returning to the UK  land of confusion".
