    "Slick" is also used to describe a police car with no exterior lights. This is not an "unmarked" police car, it simply does not have exterior lights.

    It can be a race car or bicycle's tire with no tread (just smooth rubber).

    It can also refer to a person who is sneaky or "slippery".

    To amplify on Newt's post:

    Here is an image of a UH-1 "Slick" helicopter:
