That would be a bank repo. Government seizure is either drug related or felony endangerment (street racing). I probably have the second part phrased incorrectly but seem to recall that in certain municipalities, street racing can result in forfeiture of the vehicle.

edit: oh, and unpaid taxes can result in personal property seizure as well.
