Whiskey Pete’s (Primm): The bullet-riddled car driven by the infamous crime duo, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, returns to Primm Valley Casino Resorts. After a short ride at Terrible’s Gold Ranch Casino in Reno, the V8 Ford as well as other memorabilia is now on display indefinitely at Whiskey Pete’s Resort and Casino. In 1934, Bonnie and Clyde led police on a deadly pursuit in the Ford vehicle, following a two year crime spree. The partners in crime robbed dozens of banks and killed at least nine people on their adventures across rural America, and the couple was eventually ambushed and killed on May 23, 1934, when Louisiana law officers pierced the car with more than 100 bullets. The display not only includes the battered Ford car but contains Clyde’s shredded shirt that he wore the morning of his death as well as letters of authenticity and small items from the duo’s travels. A streaming video will tell the criminals’ tale including testimonies from witnesses that saw the capture of the notable two. The historic Death Car is on display at Whiskey Pete’s and open to the public for viewing.
