Here’s the horrible “death in car by pole through eye” from the end of Paul Verhoeven’s De Vierde Man / The Fourth Man (1983).
And here’s an image from a night club scene with Peter Coyote (left) walking past this morbid car/prop. The license plate of it starts with PV4…
It’s a still from Paul Verhoeven’s real American début: the episode ‘Last Scene’ from HBO’s The Hitchhiker (1986).
Nice touch of the set designers!
