    It will be interesting to see how high the prices will go.

    If they would knock about three of those zeros I might be able to afford to bid.

    Kewl... saw one where they auction numerous guns owned by Clyde Barrow, he had about 30 + 1911's and extra mags.... numerous shotguns, rifles, Thompsons, etc. It made me wonder how they knew they were all his, and how much he hauled around with him.

    They were going for over $100K, so imagine one's actually on them at the time of their death.... will hit much much higher than those did.

    The exact quantities of weapons found in Bonnie and Clyde's 1934 Ford V8 death car are a matter of some debate. The following is a summary of the lists of weapons reportedly found in the 1934 Ford V8:

    Three 30-caliber Browning automatic rifles (BARs) (definite)
    One ten-gauge sawed-off shotgun (definite)
    One twenty-gauge sawed-off shotgun (definite)
    Six or seven Colt 45-caliber automatic pistols (definite)
    One Colt 32-caliber automatic pistol (probably)
    One Colt 38-caliber revolver or pistol (probably)
    One Colt 45-caliber revolver (probably)
    2000-3000 rounds of ammunition (definite)
    The most heinous weapon of all: one saxophone (definite)
    ..............
