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.

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.
Sounds like you've put some thought into this. I've referred to a bunch of cars as a "clutch" - even if they have automatic transmissions. Still have a Corvair, had many, ruminating on "flip." "Nader?" I like using the homonym with those Cavali... sorry, Cimarrons. Not sure that many will get it, though.
I’m impressed with all that you’ve come up with but surprised to see nothing referring to “cats”. Such as a pride of Jaguars or a clouder (yes that’s the term for a group of cats) of Mercury Cougars, Lynx or even a collection of Bill Thomas’ Cheetahs.
I don’t know that I can include any of Stutz’ cars here though...what’s a Bearcat?
Best one was the Subaru “cylinder head repair shop”. I thought that issue was a thing of the past until a friend bought one (used) last year and within a month had to-you guessed it-replace the head gaskets.
