* In ''Film/TheTerminator'', the title character proceeds to drive his vehicle into the police station after delivering a certain famous line. He also uses this move on the Terminatrix early on in [[Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines the third film]]. In point of fact, every time he says the line, he seems to mean "In a vehicle, at eye-height". It's a police van in [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay the second film]].

In a rarer form, Car Fu can also include a car being ''thrown'' as a weapon. Or [[ImprovisedWeapon used as a giant club]]. This version is most often used by superheroes. While rarer than the conventional form, within superhero stories it's quite common...despite the fact that anybody who's actually strong enough to throw a car faster than it can drive is probably strong enough to not need the car. If done with ships or spaceships, it's RammingAlwaysWorks. If the car is rigged to explode on impact, it's a MolotovTruck; if it just happens to do so, it's EveryCarIsAPinto. For murder attempts with heavy machinery, see ForkliftFu. Compare WeaponizedCar when your car can attack with attached weapons instead of just ramming.

May be part of a VehicularCombat, and a particularly effective maneuver [[TheJaywalkingDead against zombies]].
