Al Capone’s 1928 armoured Cadillac Town Sedan

The inch-thick bulletproof glass and 3,000 pounds of steel armour plating in Prohibition-era gangster Al Capone's Cadillac protected him on the Chicago streets. When he was convicted of tax evasion in 1931 and sent to Alcatraz, the U.S. Treasury Department reportedly impounded the Cadillac, and the Secret Service later borrowed it for President Franklin D. Roosevelt's security detail in 1942. In August 2010, the estate of Texas car collector John M. O'Quinn tried to auction it off, but failed to fetch the minimum price of US$450,000 and decided to keep it.
