Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed in this car by TX. Ranger Mike Hammer and posse. He bought my secretary her first ever Coke. He was arrested in the beginning and put in the Hill Co. Jail. He dug out with a spoon, vowed never to be taken again. He shot his way out of several attempts at arrest killing several officers. So they were given no warning, no quarter.
