Yeah, but your local market isn't an accurate enough sample to draw sales comparisons if you're seeing more Corvettes than Mustangs. And I don't consider the Shelby to be all that rare when Ford is supposed to be making 8-9,000 of them. Contrary to what you've seen in your area; each of my local Ford dealers has at least one GT500 in stock, and I just saw 3 at a local car show last weekend. I've seen all but 2 colors in-person. Everyone's talking about the base or Z51 'Vette as an alternative to the Shelby, but invoice on a Z06 is $61,912. That's cheaper than what most people are paying for the GT500 with these outrageous dealer markups, and it offers a helluva lot more performance and exlusivity. Let's be serious: if you told most people outside of the Mustang community that you chose a marked-up GT500 over a Z06 costing the same money, they'd probably still be laughing at you.
