.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)
The Neiman Marcus owners did not receive a car model but  received a photo frame instead.

- 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)
Note:when set is complete, presentation boxes arranged in order form a complete graphic !!
Trivia - Someone asked about #'s produced of this collection - unknown to me but would be less than 18,000. Since it could also be divided by color of your car:
less that 200 for the NM owners (why less? - Most owners never got them)
approx 1/3 went to  owners of black cars
approx 1/10 went to owners of white cars
approx 1/9 went to owners of yellow cars
The rest would have gone to owners of blue or red cars.
If there are any stat. experts that have access to the actual #'s produced, I would appreciate knowing
