Bonnie & Clyde

The “Chicago Tribune” had an expert from Cars.com put together this list of the top 10 getaway cars that bank robbers should choose.

The cars are based on a mix of being fast and forgettable . . . basically, he was looking for cars that get you away from the bank and quickly blend in with traffic.

#1.)  Toyota Camry.  So common on the roads you can dump it next to a dozen identical cars and walk away.

 #2.)  Ford Escape.  The name alone makes it qualified.

 #3.)  Honda Element.  Quote, “The plastic floors . . . [mean] it’s good for the exploding dye pack . . . and cleaning up flesh wounds.”

 #4.)  GMC Sierra.  Big towing capacity in case you steal a large safe or vault.

 #5.)  Volkswagen Passat TDI.  Good mix of speed and gas mileage . . . you can get almost 800 miles on a tank as you try to cross the border.

 #6.)  Hyundai Sonata.  Good handling during chases, and it’s nice and generic.

 #7.)  Ram Cargo Van.  You can wrap it up to disguise it as a delivery truck for a business or maybe even a postal van.

 #8.)  Ford F-150.  It’s perfect for off-road high-speed chases.

 #9.)  Dodge Charger SRT-8.  It can outrun any Chargers the police are driving . . . and also might blend in well enough to look like another cop car.

 #10.)  Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon.  Very powerful, and strong enough to maintain high speeds with passengers and a lot of stolen cash.

You’re welcome!  Now be sure to let us know how it goes!
