* ''Film/{{HaroldandMaude}} sees Harold being given an XK-E Jaguar to replace his old hearse, which was taken from him because it was seen as part of his unhealthy obsession with graveyards. He then customises the Jag into a hearse.

[[AC:Folklore]] * There was an urban legend about a kid who went shopping for his first car, looking at every car anyone was trying to sell from the footpath or driveway of their house as well as the budget used car yards, when he finds a middle-aged woman selling his dream car for a buck. He pays, drives off, hears a rattle and takes to a service centre, believing he may have found out why she was so happy to get rid of the car. The service personnel dissemble the car until they find a man's wedding ring loose in an a/c vent. The kid returns it to the woman, who says he can keep that too. It was her husband's and he had left the ring and car when he left her for a younger woman, then called later to ask her to sell the car and send him the money she got for it.

* Series/MrBean's lime green/yellow Mini Cooper is a weird sort of inversion; they're quite rare and sought after ''now'' thanks to BMW going the InNameOnly route with the brand, but in TheNineties when the show was being made it was a fairly reasonable choice of car for a lower-middle class bachelor who doesn't do much motorway driving. Creator/RowanAktinson, who played Mr Bean, is actually a CoolOldGuy with Improbably Cool Cars, including an old but pretty [[WhatAPieceOfJunk McLaren F1]] whom he crashed twice before he repaired twice and ''sold it''!

** Three ways; it's also a four-door which, in American collector-car circles makes it worth substantially less than an otherwise identical two-door (as in, start with half as much and go down from there).

* [[ArchieComics Archie's]] car ''ended up'' being this. In 1941, a 1916 Model T was a reasonably common 25-year-old AllegedCar. By the 19''80s'', it was a museum piece.

** On one hand most of the game takes place in Tanner's coma, so the abundance of rare cars is explained by the streets being filled by cars he remembers from the real world. The few segments in the game which take place in the real world have far more common cars fill the streets. ** On the other hand, Tanner uses a 70's Dodge Challenger as his standard patrol car, which is rare, valuable and unlikely to be given to a detective for his job. Even if a police department did get their hands on an abandoned classic muscle car, it would be better to auction it off and then buy several cheaper and easier to maintain cars in it's place, [[spoiler: like the Camaro that Tanner gets near the end of the game.]]

* Suitably, Las Vegas NV has Police Drag. (no, not the chorus dancers) To cut down on dangerous drag racing down the famous Strip, the Vegas police, fire department, and other city authorities maintain tricked-out and modified cars they challenge the youth of the city to pit themselves against on a track.
