Most People Don’t Know Bonnie And Clyde’s Death Car Is Right Here In Nevada
Few people haven’t heard of the infamous outlaw pair Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. This notorious couple—along with their gang—went on a two-year crime spree that included multiple murders and robberies. On 23 May 1934 in rural Louisiana, four Texas and two Louisiana law enforcement officers ambushed the couple, killing them and propelling the gunshot-riddled death car into infamy. Today, Bonnie and Clyde’s death car is a Nevada tourist attraction in—where else?—a casino.
