Mark IV is a stylish inefficient use of space.

Often take 97 Tbird to beach because we find it a "right size" for travel. Not too small carry us, hamsters, and clothes/stuff and not too large in town. Usually pack it full which turns out to be just what we intended to take.

Was surprised comparing 76 Mark IV figures to 97 Tbird figures --- see attached

That is one beautiful looking Lincoln and looks to be very well worth the wait from the information I read and the pix I saw! I know you have to be excited!
