.White book entitled "Thunderbird Celebrity Survival Guide: Coping With Stardom". It has two chapters: 
  1 - In the Spotlight 2 - Incognito; Each chapter has seven "tongue in cheek" suggestions on surviving your new found celebrity status in owning a Bird. It is silly, but has some nice pics and and funny hints like "When turning over your keys to the valet, take the time to introduce him to Mr. Odometer". On the opposite side it shows a picture of two valets joyriding in a black Bird, top down, through the city streets.
It also came with a model in the color of your car. Mine is blue, but unfortunately the model only has the concept 24 spoke wheels, and a standard black interior.  It also does not include the optional removable hardtop, but is top-down only. scale is 1/25 (description & photo courtesy of ECWilson aka birdbrain)
- Black hardbound blank book for writing about your t-bird experiences
- postcard to order personalized plaque 
(being delivered to those who have received their cars)
