* 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!"

* 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.

* Mara Jade Skywalker is this way in ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'' with her ships. It is NOT a good idea to mess with them. And true to the trope, the Jade's Fire is sacrificed on the mission to Niruan and the Jade Sabre, Luke's wedding gift to her, has to be abandoned during a crisis situation. Luke did manage to hang onto the third one,the Jade Shadow, even after her demise though.
