Bonnie and Clyde’s 1934 Ford V8 Sedan

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow quickly achieved first-name status after their two-year, 1934 crime spree. Though they were cornered and killed by law enforcement, bringing the rampage to an end, their stolen 1934 V-8-powered Ford has enjoyed a career as a museum attraction.

Part of the reason this car is so unusual is because the famous robbers actually died inside of it. Even with the glass shattered and the sedan’s sheet metal sprayed with more than 100 bullet holes, the car’s original owners fought to get it back. After the owners divorced, the Ford became a moneymaker for traveling carnivals and other roadside attractions, and achieved further notoriety after Bonnie and Clyde’s adventures were memorialized in films. Perhaps enabled by the fact that the Ford’s changed hands so many times, some tourist attractions have been known to display imposter versions. The car’s last confirmed location is at Whiskey Pete’s Casino in Primm, NV, where it could be visited free of charge. Though, given the car’s history, we’d recommend confirming that it’s still there before embarking on your own journey.
