Louisiana

Louisiana is a southeastern U.S. state on the Gulf of Mexico. Its history as a melting pot of French, African, American and French-Canadian cultures is reflected in its Creole and Cajun cultures. The largest city, New Orleans, is known for its colonial-era French Quarter, raucous Mardi Gras festival, jazz music, Renaissance-style St. Louis Cathedral and wartime exhibits at the huge National WWII Museum.

AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY

On May 23, 1934, wanted outlaws Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker were shot and killed by Texas and Louisiana state police officers as they attempt to escape arrest in a stolen 1934 Ford Deluxe near Bienville Parish, Louisiana. Barrow wrote a letter to Ford earlier that year professing his love for Ford cars, “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 hasn’t been strictly legal it don’t hurt anything to tell you what a fine car you got in the V-8.”
