2024 Mustang Dark Horse
I have been thinking about how common Dark Horses will be. I started thinking about how I don't see any Mach 1s. I live in a town of 200k, and I have seen 3 GT500s in town, 5 or more GT350s in town, but no (S550) Mach 1s. In fact, I have only seen 1 M1, FJG in another city, none at my local car shows.

I read a thread on M6G with various members mentioning they have noticed the same phenomenon. I wonder if this carries over to Dark Horse, or if they will be seen in the wild more. I feel like I probably will see more Dark Horses in the wild vs M1s.

My town of similar size has +4 Mach 1s. Only seen one handling package though. Handling package is on order constraint until March (if ever removed). Point being, Mach 1s might end up having pretty low total build numbers.

Here in south Florida (Fort Lauderdale) I only see GTs (some older ones too) or Ecos. Lots of them. No Mach 1s.

I see a couple of Mach 1s all the time here in NoVa. Maybe only 2 Gt500 sighting though. I'd be willing to bet there will be more DH sightings than Mach 1s because of the way it's being launched alongside the GT for the new gen

I have seen a couple Mach 1s in my neighborhood. I also see some GT350s occasionally. It's rare to even see an EB Mustang around here, though. It seems as though there are fewer and fewer Mustangs purchased in my state. I doubt I will see very many 24+ Mustangs, which makes me sad. I really miss the days when Fox Mustangs were everywhere. And being able to buy older Foxes for less than $1,000 was awesome. These newer Fords might as well be exotics for how often I see them.

I see a Mach 1 almost every day.

I have seen 3 others in the wild. one was a short term neighbor, for a few months before mine got delivered. one was in passing in my small town, the other was in the interstate, going other way, I Was in my M1 as well.

There are 3 in my town of 10k. I have only seen 1 though, parents saw the 3rd.

I see a lot of Mach 1s when I'm in Florida and several outside the DC area. They are limited snd hard to find. I've seen articles where people have driven hundreds of miles to purchase one.
