Outlaws Bonnie and Clyde shot to death in stolen Ford

Texas and Louisiana state police officers shot Bonnie and Clyde as they attempted to escape apprehension in a stolen 1934 Ford Deluxe near Bienville Parish, Louisiana. The only charge the Bureau could chase them on was a violation of the National Motor Vehicle Act, which gave federal agents the authority to pursue suspects accused of interstate transportation of a stolen automobile. The car in question was a Ford, stolen in Illinois and found abandoned in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Inside, agents discovered a prescription bottle later traced to the Texas home of Clyde Barrow´s aunt. When Parker and Barrow were spotted, going some 85 mph in the stolen Ford Deluxe with a V-8 engine, the officers let loose with a hail of bullets, leaving the couple no chance of survival. The bullet-ridden Deluxe, originally owned by Ruth Warren of Topeka, Kansas, was later exhibited at carnivals and fairs then sold as a collector´s item; in 1988, the Primm Valley Resort and Casino in Las Vegas purchased it for some $250,000. Barrow´s enthusiasm for cars was evident in a letter he wrote earlier in the spring of 1934, addressed to Henry Ford himself: “While I still have got breath in my lungs I will tell you what a dandy car you make. I have drove Fords exclusively when I could get away with one. For sustained speed and freedom from trouble the Ford has got every other car skinned and even if my business hasn´t been strictly legal it don´t hurt anything to tell you what a fine car you got in the V-8”.
