** Also parodied in the ''It's a Trap!'' spoof of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi' with the famous speederbike chase, except with regular bicycles. And yes, they explode when hitting a tree. Additionally, a bicycle crashes, and a hurt stormtrooper gets up and limps a little before he blows up.

** In "Something Smells", when [=SpongeBob=]] jumps on a boat's windshield and blinds the driver with his horrible breath, the car stops and suddenly explodes [[RuleOfFunny without crashing into anything at all]].

* In ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'', everything is MadeOfExplodium, including vehicles. The series is about a {{Rescue}} organization, and they have to be kept busy.

** ''Film/DrNo'' has Bond in a high-speed road chase on a curvy mountain road. He passes an obstacle; his pursuers (driving a hearse) crash and burn. [[note]]The hearse also changes from a Cadillac to a Lasalle (GM brand lower than Cadillac)[[/note]].

* Dates at least as far back as 1922 and ''Film/DrMabuseTheGambler''. A car plunges into a quarry and "explodes" via a very unconvincing smoke bomb.

While cars are the most common, it seems that ''[[ItsGoingDown any]]'' [[ItsGoingDown form of transport has a good chance of exploding]] into a [[ImpressivePyrotechnics huge ball of flames and debris]] if it's shot at or wrecked. Aircraft, railroad locomotives, ships, pretty much anything bigger and more mechanically complex than a bread box. Sometimes, this happens to cars that are plunging off cliffs and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUzN7e6kN-w&feature=related haven't hit anything yet]]''.

*** By the time the M1 Abrams was designed, it featured a heavy duty door sealing off the rounds when not firing and exterior panels which blow off should the ammo detonate, instead of sending the blast into the cabin.
*** Which most of the crews [[TooDumbToLive wedge up permanently open]], due to it being somewhat uncomfortable to use.
