* A RunningGag in ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon''. When the ''[[BadBoss Súper]]'' boasts about his brad-new, expensive, car, you can bet the latter will not last more than a couple of panels ''at best''.

** ''SaintsRow'' has the Chop Shop diversion, which works very similarly. The instant you get into a wanted vehicle in ''SaintsRow2'' or approach the right island in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird,'' you suddenly get a minimum police notoriety level, often three or even five stars. On top of that, the AI DrivesLikeCrazy at times. Good luck getting the vehicle to the chop shop in one piece, let alone getting any significant reward for it. The only good news is that there's no time limit, but given that the cops are actively hunting you down while you're taking it to the chop shop, it's in your best interest to get to the end ASAP.

* In ''Series/TheATeam'' episode "[[Recap/TheATeamS3E12HotStyles Hot Styles]]", the others somehow talked B.A. into letting Murdock drive his precious van while he's getting there and a RunningGag through the episode is the worry that something will happen to it. Strangely, except for a few moments early in the episode, Murdock takes this charge very seriously, worrying about odd sounds and keeping the heat on high to keep the carpet fluffy. Of course, all this is ruined when Murdock accidentally drives the van off a dock at the end of the episode.

** In the episode "[[Recap/TheATeamS4E22TheLittleTownWithAnAccent The Little Town With an Accent]]", Murdock still has the truck he won off ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' and he is very protective of it. He is unhappy when it gets scratched during the course of the episode. This eventually backfires on him when he refuses to let Kelvin bring it down after he and B.A. have fixed it up; he doesn't do it properly and the truck tumbles to the ground.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': Daisy borrows the Ghost Rider's car to chase down a friend. When she drives into an alley and gets a massive scrape up the side, she assures herself that it's a [[NighInvulnerable magic]], [[HealingFactor self-healing]] car. The Ghost Rider, Robbie, is sitting invisibly in the passenger seat at the time, and practically cries as he says that it only works when he's the one driving.

* In ''LicenseToDrive'', Les (Corey Haim) borrows his grandfather's prized 1972 Cadillac without permission, and during the course of a very wild night, it sustains major damage. Inverted when the grandfather laughs off the damage because he had also destroyed the BMW he had borrowed from Les' father.
* Richard Hayden's Plymouth GTX convertible in ''TommyBoy'', which he brags about copiously near the beginning of the film, is gradually reduced to a complete wreck missing most of its bodywork. By the end of the film, the thing is barely holding together, and when they are told that they can't park it where they just did, Richard's reaction is a [[{{Beat}} moment's pause]], and then a flat "Keep it!"
