Mr. Thompson said that the car was a Black 1934 Pontaic 4-door Sedan, and that, he (Milton), was seven at the time and in the second grade. George Thompson Sr. had picked his sons, George II and Milton at Greenwood, a private school, and arrived at the home for lunch. Dad had told young Milt, "bring in the keys." but Milt wanted to listen to the radio and forgot. He said he couldn't remember if his father or his mother had gone down to look at mugshots, but he said the Highway Patrol came out that night with photos and Mr. Thompson recognized the picture of Clyde. The Highway Patrol said, they (Barrow Gang) had just robbed the Humansville Bank and that he was lucky he stopped in the driveway when he did. Mr. Thompson said the car rolled down the driveway, across Walnut St., and then into the driveway of the neighbor across the street. Then Clyde "thumbed his nose" at George and drove off. Milton said they got the car back three days later. He said the car was overheated, but there was no damage, whatsoever to it. Milton said his mother told him they had sold the car to a Matt Prater, William Prater's dad. Robert Gibbons had talked to Prater family members, Dr. Thomas Prater and William Prater. Here's their story - Matt Prater was a traveling salesman for Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals and Biologicals Company where he was a pharmacist. He (Matt Prater) had bought Pontaics for use in his sales business. William Prater was 10 years old in 1934 and was in the 4th grade. He said that his father had bought the black 1934 Pontaic sedan, that Bonnie and Clyde had stolen from George Thompson's driveway. They were not aware at the time, of the "test drive" Clyde Barrow had given it, before Thompson cleaned it up and sold it, as "new". Only later, did they learn the story behind the car's history. William Prater is a couple of years older than Milton Thompson, who had left the keys in the car in the Thompson driveway, making it simple for Clyde to let off the brake and coast down the long driveway to Walnut Street, before taking off with the car. Dr. Thomas Prater, William Prater's son, seemed to know more about the incident, probably hearing the story from the Thompson boys. The car was traded in after being used by Matt Prater in his sales business.
