AMBUSHED


"THE DEATH CAR"

167 BULLETS LATER
With dozens of rounds striking their bodies, Clyde's head flew back
and Bonnie's toppled forward. Clyde's foot slipped off of the clutch
pedal and the car rolled into a ditch.

The lawmen stood looking at the bullet-riddled car for several seconds,
and when no return fire came back at them, they lowered their weapons.
Inside the car they found, a bloodstained map of the state of Louisiana,
Clyde's sunglasses, Bonnie's cosmetics, a detective magazine and her
partially eaten sandwich.

Clyde had over five hundred dollars in his wallet, when inspected!
Besides the large arsenal of weapons found throughout the car, the
lawmen found under the back seat, fifteen license plates from various
states.

On the rear seat, they found travel bags full of clothes and some sacks
of food items. In the trunk they found camping equipment and Clyde's
saxophone.

I'VE GOT YOU COVERED!

In the early part of his criminal career, Clyde was slick in the way that he made sure
that the license plate was covered. Whether it was a coat or a hat, it covered the plate.
The later photos seem to have the license plates as the star attraction in his photos.
