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.
A group of anything from Great Britain could be referred to as a "grief." And of course, anything equipped with either Lucas or Bosch electrics could be called a "darkness." I like to observe a gathering of early two-stroke motorcycles as a "smoke." Watching videos of cars leaving car shows only to meet with disaster could qualify as a "crash" of Mustangs. But all of these things have but a single definition: sponges of money.
