Totally lame. In a diner, and very few REAL artifacts. The car isn't even the right color. Not worth the stop unless you need something to eat.

The site of Louisiana law enforcement's ambush on Bonnie & Clyde. On May 23, 1934, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were gunned down in broad daylight by four Texas officers, including Frank Hamer, who had been on the couple's trail for months.

The officers fired over 130 rounds into Clyde's stolen Ford V8. The first shot caught Clyde in the head. The next 129 were directed at his corpse and a screaming parker. The posse suffered temporary deafness from the amount of firing that morning.

The original marker at this site honored Bonnie & Clyde, and was often defaced by teenaged lovers and graffiti artists of all stripes. Recently, it was replaced with a "more vandalism-proof" monument which also shifted the focus of the memorial to the posse, rather than the murdered couple. This monument has already been spray painted.

Even though the bullet-ridden car was dragged into town and their bodies were removed, legend has it that the outlaws never left the site. Pictures taken here sometimes come out with ghostly figures.
