Made Famous By: Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker
Practical Application: Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker stole this car on April 29, 1934. They used it for 2,500 miles of criminal activity before being ambushed and killed in it by Louisiana police on May 23, 1934.

The actual car used in the ambush has continually drawn crowds--even though it's now nearly a century after the car first gained infamy. It even showed up in an episode of The Simpsons.
