%%* * The bobsled in ''Film/CoolRunnings''.''Film/CoolRunnings''. It is incredibly old by standards of Olympic equipment, yet the Jamaicans use it out of necessity and because they feel it brings them luck... and then their final race on the movie turns into a hair-raising wreck because one of the pieces used for maneuvering tears itself apart right in the middle of a turn.

* The (at this moment of writing Early Access) videogame ''[[http://www.excalibur-publishing.com/products/jalopy-early-access-pre-order Jalopy]]'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: you (the player) and your character's uncle embark through a RoadTripPlot through post-Glasnost Eastern Europe, riding a two-stroke car (an {{Expy}} of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trabant the Trabant]] called the "Laika") that takes ''twenty-two seconds'' to go from 0 to 60 and ''will'' see high maintenance through the journey (although exactly how high, though, will depend on the player's choices).

* {{Subverted}} in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''. Judy Hopps' meter maid cart looks brand new, and runs perfectly fine, but is probably slower than she can walk on her own feet. Nick calls it a "joke-mobile".
** [[spoiler:In the end, it's {{averted}} when she and Nick get issued a state-of-the-art interceptor that is most certainly in CoolCar territory.]]

* DJ Drake's AMC Gremlin in ''LooneyTunesBackInAction'' gave revered Looney Tunes voicebox Mel Blanc an extra posthumous acting credit by looping the effects he did for Jack Benny's Maxwell (see below) as it pulled into frame. Apropos of nothing, the car was also a ShoutOut, as its arrival was marked with a snippet of the "''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' Rag" (Joe Dante apparently couldn't resist a bit of self-reference).

* Buford T. Justice's police cruiser in ''SmokeyAndTheBandit'' usually becomes one of these by the end of every movie, in one case being reduced to nothing but a chassis, engine, and wheels, ''[[TheDeterminator but it still keeps going]]''. The emergency lightbar also survives, but with no roof to put it on, he just has his son hold it over their heads from the passengers seat while he drives.

** "What Can it Take?" is a durability contest for reliable, older cars, which means that each challenge involves removing parts from the vehicles to hinder their performance, gradually turning them into Alleged Cars. By the final challenge, they're all stripped to their frames with various engine parts missing, and Tanner's Honda Civic has been ''cut in half'' horizontally.

** Meanwhile, Egon's a bit preoccupied by the Alleged Building they're considering renting:
-->'''Egon:''' I think this building should be condemned. There's serious metal fatigue in all the load-bearing members, the wiring is substandard, it's completely inadequate for our power needs, and the neighborhood is like a demilitarized zone.
