So far in a full year plus, I have seen one Ti Yellow Blaze on the freeway. And one other, an SE a few times in my area, parked near the main post office. That Yellow Blaze has the 16" wheels, stick.
I have never seen a Yellow Blaze sedan.
So I am still unique so far with stick and 17" black painted wheels in my area.
1,319 total Yellow Blaze hatches.. that is an average of 26 per state!

Added: does that total mean North America?(so Canada is included?) Or USA only?

Anyway, I am glad i have a rare paint job! And glad i was actually able to buy the only one in my 100 mile area at the time I was looking!!! AND that it is a stick with sport package.

My last car, Contour SVT in Tropic Green (Amazon Green is another Ford name) was also rare. I never did see another one in the 13 years I owned it. Silver ones, black ones red ones, but never a green one.
I'm guessing its total production as only North American Foci models were available in both Yellow Blaze and Frosted Glass as far as I'm aware.

Twenty has a yellow blaze sedan and is in Canada.

I had to special order my car as the only other one on the lot at the time was not equipped the same way and had sat for close to six months. Since it was to be bought on Z-plan through the fact that my grandfather had retired from Ford and it would cost the exact same amount to take the car on the lot vs custom ordering the car exactly the way I wanted (minus the difference in options). Although now I half wonder if I shouldn't have ordered the premium package as the leather is also gone, but technically the specific combination of features I have are even rarer together.
