A number of them were also very popular because one of its kind have gone down the infamous route over time. Here are the top infamous vehicles in history.
A Ryder Truck has been known to have been involved in one of America’s most tragic event in history. Timothy McVeigh, the driver, and Terry Nichols had rented this truck and loaded it up with a bomb made from lethal chemicals, diesel fuel, and agricultural fertilizer.
The destruction they caused reduced a part of the Alfred p. Murrah Building into rubble while 170 individuals were robbed with their lives.
Ford Model 730 Deluxe Sedan
If you ever seen the film “Bonnie and Clyde,” then you would recognize this next car, a Ford Model 730 Deluxe Sedan. This couple had gone down in history as two of the most notorious bank robbers. For two years they were able to continue their crime spree for about 2,500 miles. However, their luck ran out on May 1934 when the FBI gunned them and their car down. This vehicle can be seen on display in a Las Vegas casino.
1961 Lincoln 74A
This infamous car is where John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 1963. Many point out that he would have been a harder target if it were not for the fact that he is riding on a convertible non-bulletproof vehicle.

1935 Mercedes 770K Limousine

Another notorious robber on this list is John Dillinger, who relied on his Essex Terraplane to keep him safe and ahead of his pursuers, the police. Dillinger (much like Bonnie and Clyde) was gunned down. This happened shortly after he decided to ditch his car and crashing it to a tree.
