Artist Comments: This painting is of a vintage Ford V8. The same type car that helped make “Bonnie and Clyde” famous in the early 1930’s. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were notorious fugitives who traveled throughout the central states of North America with their gang during the Great Depression robbing and murdering wherever they went. Their crime spree ended in their car when they were ambushed by Texas lawmen at a roadblock and then shot to death when 100 armor piercing bullets riddled their car. Bonnie and Clyde were buried in separate cemeteries in Dallas. Clyde’s gravestone reads “Gone but not forgotten.”
Today the actual bullet-riddled death car driven by the infamous couple is now on display at Whiskey Pete’s Resort and Casino in Primm, Nevada. There is no admission charge to see the exhibit. For more information about the actual car Bonnie and Clyde met their demise in, visit Roads & Rides. Additional information can be found at Roadside America.
