That should not be a problem. I just meshed a number of cars and trucks in a tunnel. I created a *.stl file that included all the cars. In this case, the surface of all the cars are included in a single patch. But in principle, it should be possible to include several *.stl files in one run of snappyHexMesh. Then it might create separate patches for each part of the geometry.
