from one of the "urban legends" website:

http://www.snopes2.com/

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Claim: A famous gangster of the 1930s sent a fan letter to the Ford Motor Company.

Status: True.

Origins: America's first affordable V8-powered car was an automobile introduced in 1932 by the Ford Motor Company, one which quickly grew tremendously popular and received effusive praise from motorists. Of those enthusiastic drivers, none was more famous at the time than the writer of this 10 April 1934 letter:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 every other car skinned, and even if my business hasent been strickly legal it don't hurt enything to tell you what a fine car you got in the V8.

Yours truly
Clyde Champion Barrow
