Re: Bonnie and Clyde

Yes, Bill. But I think the news article you posted has the name wrong. That is what I was referring to.

Re: Bonnie and Clyde

Yes, but there is only one original and it is very easy to tell the original from the replicas. Agreed, the last I heard was that the real B&C car was on display in Nevada.

Re: Bonnie and Clyde

According to my reference sources, Miss Warren, the original owner, had to fight for months to get this car back. Not sure how accurate the news story is.

Re: members that have collected other car besides ford

I used to collect early 70s Cadillacs.

These are nice cars but are not as fun as a pre war V-8 Ford.

I have another Cadillac and another Buick (and another Ford) in my future.
