    Thanks. Great article. Our neighbors in Northern Ca. had a 1969 Colony Park. It was about 5 years old, and immaculate, particularly when compared to our well used 1969 Country Squire. With all due respect to clam shell admirers, that Mercury was the fastest, tightest and quietest station wagon I've ever been in. Interestingly enough, it had a higher (yes) level of trim than the wagon in the article. Also had a vinyl roof (factory). Thanks again. Great article, one of the most beautiful wagons ever made IMHO.
