Ask the Best and Brightest: What's a Better Word for a Collection of Fast and Furious Cars?

Robert Farago
by Robert Farago

In this Streetfire video, Bob Hartwig of Cinema Vehicle Services invites Fireball Tim to examine a “plethora” of Fast and Furious 4 movie cars. Nice word, plethora. Not as catchy as “meme,” but way better than “farrago.” Still, we live in a world where you can happen upon a murder of crows. So there’s got to be a better collective noun for the vehicles used in a movie based on a trend who’s time has come and gone—a long time ago. I put it to you, our highly literate readers: What’s the best name for the collection featured here? And remember, “It’s always hard to make things 100 percent perfect unless you can buy them off the showroom at the same time.” Words to live by. [ Preview for Mad Max—I mean F&F4 here.]

    I'd watch this movie just for the Grand National. (Well maybe as a rental, but not in theaters.) That's been my dream car ever since I was a teen. There's no better feeling than humiliating a dumb ass teenager (even better if their girlfriend's with them) in a Buick. Maybe the powers that be at GM will give Buick the greenlight to make them again one day. A dual turbocharged 3.6 ought to get the job done nicely. I can always dream...
