What do you call a group of Corvettes? Collective car nouns, real and imagined

There are some wonderful collective nouns used to describe groups of various animals. For example, a “murder” of crows or a “tower” of giraffes. They’re not official names, true, but language is adaptable, and if enough people adopt a word, then the term can stick. Plus, new collective nouns can be fun, and I envy those that get to coin new examples.

In that vein, I thought I’d come up with some of my own nouns that describe groups of certain cars.

Anyone who has known me would clearly understand a Fever of Corvettes, which I have.

Good to know, now when I get together with some other Falcon owners, I can look intelligent by stating; "We have a rather good looking Cast of Falcons here today"

A barrel of Mini's? As in Cooper.

More than 3 Jaguars: a Pride?

A group of Ford Focus, 'Slippers'  (If you are not familiar with the Ford Focus, the transmissions are....let's say...horrible, to say the least)

More than 2 Suburbans: a Sprawl

more than 2 Ford Escapes: a Houdini

That Subaru one had me laughing, nice one. Dodge Darts could also be in a quiver.

A group of Chevrolet Bolts is of course a bucket.

A group of Lotus cars has even Lotus owners perplexed, not "Loti" but simply "Lotus"...(from a company press release ~ mid 1960's)

Lincoln's, it's a convention?

A palace of Dauphines?

A constellation of Vegas?

A squadron of Spitfires?

A forest of Sprites?

A club of Sportsmen?

A wealth of Bel Aires?

How about an eight track of Dodge Darts?

A group of British cars of any marque can accurately be referred to as a "puddle" or, possibly, as a "drip". "A drip of Wolseleys" seems about right...

A grouping of Dashers-a team?  You completely left out Jaguars-a Pride? or a Privilege?  or a Wealth of Jaguars?  Then there is Flight of Rolls Royce!   and a "win" of Triumphs!  Jay

A Thunderbird, a Firebird, and a Phoenix drive into a bar. The bar burns down, but is now a "rebirth" smoke shop.

The Glass Pack -- glass is the most common element with all C generations', wrap-your-ass-in-glass, take off of the Rat Pack - sophisticated but yet rebellish, and lastly a sound of a great muffler

 

A Wave --- save the wave double entendre

Obviously, the Highlanders are a "clan"!

And Miatas?

 

CaptBobbyB
New Driver

Miata is an Old High German term meaning 'prize' or 'reward, so "a Treasure of Miatas?"

JHaydon

A group of Spec Miatas is a pinata party.  A pinata of Miatas.

How about a regatta of corvettes?

CaptBobbyB
New Driver

Regatta= a race of pleasure craft, apropos for Plymouth Lasers or Infiniti J24's/J30's

How about a regatta of corvettes?

Jacskate

I kind of like a “Fleet” of Corvettes.

Crossrace

Uhh, I'm pretty sure a group of small warships is a squadron which would make it a Corvette squadron.

Where is the flock of Birds

CaptBobbyB
New Driver

Corvairs are small warships as well. So a convoy, fleet or flotilla works for them as well. A group of black Firebirds or black T-birds- a Murder, a Series of Trans Ams, a Circuit of Grand Prix's, a Race of LeMans, a Gamble of Monte Carlos. For a mixed crowd of a Q50 a Q60 and a blue dodge Horizon- a Buzz Lightyear- two Infinities and "Beyond" (a blue Horizon)

A police official in Japan commenting about an accident involving 4 newer Ferraris described it as 'a gathering of narcissists.'  I suppose something in the quote may have been lost in translation, but the end result was apropos.

A "field" of Pacers, as in harness racing.

A "fiesta" of Cordobas.

A "beachfull" of Malibus.

A "caravan" of Caravans.

A "sharpening" of Edges.

Sorry, if anyone hurled.

A seasoning of Cayennes.

"A plethora of Pontiacs"

CaptBobbyB

I'd have my reservations about that.

richriggs

having owned a number of not entirely reliable older cars I can add a "tow truck" of whatever brand / type you have in mind. 

JBaguley

How about a clot of SUV's?

Zephyr

Given that the corvette ship was on the small side it should be a squadron of corvettes. How about a rust pile of Fiats? 

Okey78
Intermediate Driver

A bundle of Cords or perhaps a knot of Cords.  For those on the kinky side, a whip of Cords.

Okey78
Intermediate Driver

A squadron of Interceptors.

an orbit of Solstice's

a Vista of Sky's

a serenity of Firefly's

an assassination of Lincolns

or more PC an emancipation of Lincolns
