Desperate For Attention...
Crusing around town last weekend when I pulled up next to what I thought was a GTS. Upon further inspection, the guy had gone through the effort to paint the GT symbol with the exact shade of red the GTS has. I would've snapped a pic w/my phone, but the light changed and he turned and 'sped off'. I got a good laugh out of it

thats probly the guy who put a GTS badge on his GT, since he beat an auto GTS. i remember arguing with that guy. what he said "well, i figure that if i can beat a GTS then i should be like one, so i should just put on a GTS emblem" ...some people are stupid.

No, you could clearly tell he just painted the GT symbol. If I see him out again I'll be sure and snap a pic

Dont understand why you would do this. On the other hand I don't even have my GTS symbols on my car so maybe just preference.

I think there are a number of people who have the GT and put the GTS emblem on their cars, kind of sad.

But you know what's even worse? Some time ago, there was a silver seventh gen. in my area that actually had Ferrari emblems on his Hood and maybe else where. It was so incredibly stupid.

From what I understand of this is that the guy has a GT symbol on his GT. But it is painted red. Uhmm, what is wrong with that? Maybe he likes red more than grey rofl

well i guess painting the GT red is better than putting a GTS badge on it, but the gts badge on a gt...that's like saying your gf has D's when she's really got B's, it's just not cool...

i've seen mustangs with gtr signs, but i have to say the all time greatest was a white neon with a sticker saying neon type R placed exactly where the integra type R stickers are. it was so funny. the sticker looked exactly the same as the intergras but it had neon instead of integra. the big red R and everything rofl rofl

I just don't understand what is so bad about painting the Letters. If i understand this correctly, his car is a GT, with a GT badge just painted Red, Right??? So what's the big deal. rolleyes

Maybe that is he color scheme. I have seen quite a bit of people paint them to match the color scheme, the color of there car so you just see the silver part.

It's not like the car is misbadged or has a parkbench on the back of it.
