    Reminds me of what a "throw a away" society we are.

    Having said that I had a Magna once which I hope went through the crusher a long time ago.

    So sad. They almost bring tears to my eyes.

    What was the thread about? (couldn't read it). Are they current photos and if so, where from?

    Very, very sad indeed to see this. I would guess that many of these fine cars were scrapped during the French car scrappage scheme which ran in 2009; any car in any condition and older than 10 years would have qualified...

    Cheers,

    Default GS and others

    They are obviously so superfluous in Europe, it makes us here great caretakers.

    We should be looking after the few we have by comparison.

    Knowing that there are people here that cannot even stick a simple cover over the top of to stop pave of rust defies me.

    Like why you would spoil a collectable car with a shit paint job.

    I just wish there was some way of preserving these cars without the field, the vines, the claws of machine that lifts, the blocks, the exposure to elements, the yards with simply TOO many.

    In a sad way, many of those a interesting pictures.

    Sad, sad to see... but not all Euro-GS's ends as scrap. I proudly still drive my 1220 GS Break. 1972 model it is, and she has been in my posession for 36 years...
    My regards to all GS-Aussi owners...

    The fact that this happens to so many makes the few that do survive collectible. It has happened to once common cars here in Australia. You used to see Toranas everywhere. Not so today. But have a look in Just Cars etc. and see what prices they are asking for the survivors. And that was just a run of the mill piece of Aussie junk!
    At least those GS may be able to supply parts if someone is enterprising enough!
    Long Live The GS!
    Cheers Gerry
