I had for six years a customized plate that was incorrect. Imagine my embarrasement when I figured out that my car was indeed a 1973 even though it was built in November of 1972 and it was a GTS not a GT5. How you guys put up with my numbnutsness is beyond me.
So this fall I corrected my monumental blunder. I give you the pictures to redeem myself.

Way to go. I've been told that the truth will set you free...eventually!

you could have blamed the DOT for confusing the "S" with a '5'. We'll give you the year, they are so confusing anyway.

Nope, no cop outs. I was thinking I knew more than what it turns out I did. I must suffer the consequences so I will learn not to be so arrogant.
Badges ????? we dont need no stinking badges ?? who said that ???

I have to say when I bought 9138 .. I had to look twice at the lettering on the side the S looks like a 5 ... but obviously the body was not a 5 .. but funny thing 9138 was made between two GT5's 9137 & 9139 .... crazy ITALIANS..... LOL

It was the mexican bandits replying to Humphry Bogarts request for identification after they claimed to be constabulary in the "treasure of Sierra Madre".
Also I had heard that Detomaso choose to call the car a GT5 so he could use all those left over badges he had laying around after the Ford program ended. But that could be just a rumor.
