Is there any grammatically correct example where the structure mentioned in the title i.e. adjective immediately followed by 'the'+noun is used in a sentence? Does any rule prohibit such usage? This question explores a similar concept but I couldn't find any example using 'the'.

An example just came to my head:

If you have a large family, the bigger the car is, the better.

But you have to be careful, these constructs are not the "mainstream" grammar rules - they are merely particular situations / constructs.
