Rent an RV in Primm


Primm (formerly known as State Line and often called Primm Valley) is an unincorporated community in Clark County, Nevada, United States, primarily notable for its position straddling Interstate 15 where it crosses the state border between California and Nevada. It sits on Ivanpah Dry Lake, which extends to the north and south of town. It was previously known by the name of State Line (two words), but was renamed in 1996 to avoid confusion with Stateline in northern Nevada. It is named after the original developer of the town, Ernest Jay Primm. The community's economy is based on its three casinos, which attract gamblers from Southern California wanting to stop before reaching Las Vegas 40 miles (64 km) to the north, or as a last chance to gamble before leaving Nevada. Most of Primm's residents are employees of the casinos. While not a census-designated place, the 2000 census population for the community is 436. A Clark County Comprehensive Planning Department estimate placed the population at 284 on July 1, 2006, apparently using different boundaries for the area. In a December 5, 2007 article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Primm's population is listed as around 1,132. Primm used to have its own post office on the north side of town, but that has been replaced. All U.S. mail addresses serving Primm (zip code 89019) were given Jean addresses and are now served out of the Jean post office.

Bonnie and Clydes Death Car

From an alleged letter from Clyde to Henry Ford to multiple fake Bonnie & Clyde death cars to the journey of the actual car, one '34 Ford still creates quite a stir. The actual 1934 Ford Bonnie & Clyde met their maker in belonged to Ruth & Jesse Warren of Topeka, Kansas, that is, until the bandits stole it. One month later it was found in Louisiana complete with bullet holes and Bonnie & Clyde's blood. The Warrens had to sue the local sheriff just to get back their bullet-ridden car then sue another asshat promoter to get the car back yet again. And like anyone with a car they love... It was a big focal point of the Warrens' divorce. In just a few years the Bonnie & Clyde 1934 Ford had "been to court" 3 different times. Of course, within a few years the vultures were circling too, creating fake death cars and touring them around county fairs and expos. The big rub? With so many fakes the actual car, a potential income earner for Ruth Warren, was now in risk of being considered a fraud too. Fast forward to the release of the blockbuster Bonnie & Clyde and re-circle the frauds, the real car, and the legal teams debating which car was the original. The most-well known fake came from the Lam-Sir Corp of Houston and traveled the south until the cops hauled it away. Supposedly the car ended up in the hands of Warner Brothers as a template for the cars used in the movie. Today, the actual 1934 Ford death car is on display at Whiskey Pete's Casino, but the fakes are still out there. With the anniversary of their death approaching, we can assume they'll come out of the woodwork in full force. Volo Auto Museum, known for all sorts of real and replica famous cars, will actually be presenting a history of the fake cars and show off the Lam-Sir fake itself. -Roadtrippers According to "Seeks Ghosts": "The car itself is also considered haunted by their ghosts. For 30 years this blood splattered, bullet-ridden V8 Ford “Death Car” as it is known, was a popular attraction at carnivals, amusement parks, flea markets and state fairs. It is estimated that it made it various owners millions of dollars.  Today the car is displayed in a room along with Clyde Barrow’s bloodstained, bullet holed shirt at Whiskey Pete’s Casino in Primm, Nevada just across the border from California.  Several people who have viewed the Ford over the years state they got a creepy unnatural feeling as they stood near it. Yet again, many people who have taken photographs of this car have picked up strange anomalies in their pictures."
