In 1934, Clyde Barrow of the notorious duo Bonnie & Clyde and fan of the Ford V8 sent Henry Ford a letter thanking him for making great getaway cars.

The letter reads:
Tulsa, Okla
10th April

Mr. Henry Ford
Detroit Mich.

Dear Sir: –

While I still have got breath in my lungs I will tell you what a dandy car you make. I have drove Fords exclusively when I could get away with one. For sustained speed and freedom from trouble the Ford has got ever other car skinned and even if my business hasen’t been strickly legal it don't hurt anything to tell you what a fine car you got in the V8 –

Yours truly
Clyde Champion Barrow
