Bonnie and Clyde's Death Car
In early 1934, Bonnie Parker and
Clyde Barrow stole a V8 Ford and drove it around the
Midwest, robbing and killing people. That joyride ended
when lawmen punctured the car (and Bonnie and Clyde)
with over 100 armor-piercing bullets.
Since then, the location of the "Bonnie and Clyde Death
Car" has often been as difficult to find as it was when
its drivers were alive.
The blood-splattered, bullet-ridden car was an instant
attraction, touring carnivals, amusement parks, flea
markets, and state fairs for 30 years. In the 1970s it
was at a Nevada race track where people could sit in it
for a dollar.
A decade later it was in a Las Vegas car museum; a
decade after that it was in a casino near the
California/Nevada state line. It was then moved to a
different casino on the other side of the freeway, then
it went on tour to other casinos in Iowa, Missouri, and
