Please explain how this is “your name” when it is documented both physically and electronically to have been in use for years prior to your arrival? Why should I participate in an out of state corporate show that by virtue of your post, is already belittling/sweeping aside true LOCAL car guys that are very well known and respected?
I would suggest – at the very least – that you chose your words and actions carefully when trying to come in to a new area with the potential to cause strife to part of the local community. Yes, you trade marked the name. Good for you. Obviously your fact finding in this area was horribly lacking, or you came in under the premise that you could over-run the smaller shows. Either way, not very impressive, and as I am sure you are aware, could be an expensive and long lasting issue if taken to a higher authority.

I wish you the best – just not on the backs of others.

Jim and I are two local car guys who wanted to start a weekly show where car guys could go hang out for a few hours on a Saturday morning. We liked the Cars and Coffee concept that we saw in Irvine and Las Vegas and joined in order to use the name they trademarked and to have access to this website and forum.

We are not trying to run over any other car show nor are we trying to, as you put it, step on the backs of others. In fact, there were people from the 26th Annual Exotic Car Show &Concours D’Elegance passing out flyers for their event which has a tour on Saturday am which would conflict with our show. We didn’t run them off, rather we told them they were welcome to pass out flyers and we would try and make their event.

You are welcome to come out this Saturday and check out the show. I think you can tell from the pictures posted of the first show last Saturday, we had a pretty good turnout and a lot of different type cars.
