Wide 3rd brake light "GTS' what is it?

I saw a car the other night with a 3rd brake light that spanned the whole trunk in a slight arc. I could not see what kind of car it was other than it had "GTS" on the back RH side.

Does anyone have any idea what this car is? I'd like to have a closer look at one.

I know one of the Cadillacs had them in the trunk lid that did that. Have been trying to find out the year and such for that myself.

Whatever they are, the owners must be good at avoiding accidents. I've been looking for one to come in the shop for sometime, since I am working in a collision shop. That is about the only body style I haven't worked on. LOL

I think is was the late 90's on the Deville. I pretty sure you could order one buy saying it was for a '98 Deville. But, a warning to you, they are not cheap! and the wreckin-yard guys know it!

3rd brake light

Could it be a Cadillac CTS? I checked them out on ebay and they have a large light on the trunk.

The project that I want to use it on I have plenty of time on. I want to get the trunk lid also, as I want the pocket it fits in. I can wait until I find just the right deal on one.

That's it!

Thanks guys, that's the one!

Since I have a f/g trunk lid, it'd be not too bad doing an install. I like the LED conversions too. Great idea.

Not a for sure, but maybe I'll run a strip of red electrical tape across the back, to see what it might look like.

Anyway thanks again
