The point of George Bailey driving an out dated car is to show that the Bailey Savings and Loan is not a very profitable institution. Ergo George has had to make do with his older car for much longer than others would have had to.

Would Crockett's Ferraris on Miami Vice count as this? I don't recall how it was justified that an clean vice cop in Miami would be able to afford a Daytona or a Testarossa — was it impounded property or something?

I think they were owned (leased?) by the police department and Crockett was allowed to drive them to maintain his various undercover stories (depending on the writer, episode, story arc etc.) I haven't watched the show since it was originally on, but at the beginning of one season, I recall the LT telling Crockett that they couldn't afford to replace the Ferrari blown up at the climax of the previous season, and he would have to drive a hot rod 50s pickup. Crockett maintains that this jeopardises his cover as a high riding drug dealer/buyer.
