The death car was a vehicle owned by Vikki and Vance, and used during their "crime spree". The player can hear the story of Vikki and Vance by consulting Primm Slim in the Vikki and Vance Casino. Slim's account implies that Vikki and Vance were in fact small-time white collar criminals. Despite this, they were apparently considered notable before the war since the Vikki and Vance Casino, which seems to be a pre-War building.
Somewhat more, the death of Vikki and Vance in the death car was an accident, as they drove into a shoot-out between police and some bank robbers. After they were killed, the car was put on display at the Vikki and Vance Casino, it is still there by 2281.
The death car is a dark blue color, slightly rusted at several points, with popped tires and broken headlights. The car also has large, flared wheel arches, popular with cars in the 1930s. It has four doors, and it sports a rather large grille at the front. The left side is riddled with bullet holes while the right side is not, that and the story told by Primm Slim in which the police officially apologizes for the incident implies that only the cops went triggerhappy.
The death car appears in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenesEdit
- Like the "death car" display for Vikki and Vance, there is a tourist display of the car real-life criminal couple Bonnie and Clyde were driving when they were ambushed and killed. The car is on display at Whiskey Pete's Casino in Primm, Nevada.
- Similar to the Fallout: New Vegas pickup truck, the vehicle had to be modified to have an atomic engine because it wouldn't be possible (or make much sense) for a vehicle from the 1930s to be nuclear powered.
- ↑ Primm Slim dialogue - "You can put your eyes on the genuine Death Car just over yonder, and there's Vance's machine gun in the case next to it!"
- ↑ Primm Slim dialogue - "It was more like a narrow swath of shoplifting, check-cashing fraud, and gas pump driveoffs - but crime is crime! They drove reckless, too."
- ↑ Primm Slim dialogue - "Perhaps it was fate itself that accidentally drove them into a crossfire between police and a gang of bank robbers in Plano, Texas... We'll never know for sure. All we know is that the crossfire tore the car and both occupants to pieces, and the police issued an official apology."
