    I was wondering why there is no area for the GTS crowd...we are a rare breed of our own!!!

    I agree. This is the only thing Ford did that was close to the LX 5.0. As a prior owner of a '93 5.0 LX coupe I appreciate the GTS. I've got a '98 GT with cloth interior but I would love to get rid of the spoiler and all the power stuff. Just adds weight and is something else to go wrong. I want it with no options right down to no radio and AC. Just motor, wheels and tires.

    i agree about the GTS forum. Should definitely have one. One of the low production mustangs. Should be remembered.

    Mine is pretty much equipped like a GT. It was optional at the purchase to get A/C,power windows, doors etc. But little hints here and there confirmed that It is actually a GTS

    I heard about 200 pounds lighter then the GT mainly because of the weight of the seats, and spoiler, and power stuff that is not on ours.

    Gts Id?

    Here's a stupid (maybe) question...is there a VIN code or some other way to know for sure that a car is a GTS? My registration actually reads "Mustang GTS" on it...but the car is loaded: Mach460, wing, fog lights, leather, power seats, lumbar, pw, pdl, pm, cruise, auto, a/c...everything, I believe, except rear defrost, and no CD player. Does have the 16" 5 spokes on it, though...

    What gives? Is the car a "loaded GTS", which would completely defeat the "point" of a GTS? Or is my registration just confused?

    Just wondering...

    Kinda off topic but are you a fan of The Shield hillie? Noticed your little icon thingy.

    And don't panic, if I remember correctly I believe you could get all those options on a GTS too if you ordered it.

    My 95 GTS weighs in at 3220 with a 1/2 a tank of gas in it. my brothers 94 GT weigh in at 3430. I would definatly say they are lighter. My car didn't have a spoiler when it was new but the previous owner installed it. The info I found said that there where 846 white 5-speed cars built in 95. Maybe someone has better info.

    They're just stripped down, simplier GTs. They're lighter but not significantly from what I understand. They don't have anything mechanically that makes them special from a GT
