Joker Goon Cars were custom cars driven by the Joker Goons. The cars were 1978 Dodge 3700 GT sedans that were painted in the Joker's trademark colors; purple and green. The body was purple, with both the hood and tire rims green. Multi-colored lights were strung around the rear window, and fuzzy dice hung from the rear-view mirror.

History

Car Chase Through the Streets of Gotham

When Batman and Vicki Vale fled from the Flugelheim Museum, Joker ordered his Goons to pursue them. Batman parked the Batmobile in front, near the two Goon Cars and the Joker Van. When Batman and Vicki raced away in the Batmobile, the Goons piled into both of the Goon Cars and followed in pursuit.

The car chase caught the attention of the GCPD in two patrol cars. The GCPD quickly maneuvered to follow the three cars. The first Goon Car collided into a truck that carried large metal pipes. After the second Goon Car smashed into the first, several of the pipes, along with cases of vegetables from a street vendor, fell on top of the two cars.

The second car managed to pull away, and raced away from the GCPD, and pursued the Batmobile again. The second Goon Car passed the Batmobile, which was parked with its security shield plating up. Four Joker Goons piled out of their car to kill Batman, who fell from a great height to save Vicki.

Appearances

Behind the scenes
