* Charlie Croker's Aston-Martin [=DB4=] in the original ''TheItalianJob'' is established early on in the film as a prized possession which Croker maintains meticulously. Needless to say, once the Mafia ambush Croker and his gang on an Alpine pass, the [=DB4=] is destroyed in short order by being pushed off the edge of a cliff - though not before one mobster remarks what a "pretty car" it is.

* Most installations in ''TheFastAndTheFurious'' franchise have some example of this, though Dominic's Dodge Charger in the first film (which was built by his late father and is revealed midway through the movie to be some sort of intimidating uber-car) getting completely pulverized by a semi truck in the movie's last drag race is the most remembered instance of this. The funniest example would be Sean from ''Tokyo Drift'' wrecking Han's S15 Silvia with a Skyline engine because he just can't drift.

* The JerkJock's obsession with keeping his car safe from his 'girlfriend' in the ''{{Franchise/Transformers}}'' [[Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries movie]] more or less directly lead to Mikaela meeting Sam properly.

* 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.
