    There are tons Jay. I don't quite know what the big deal is. Everyone goes to see cars and have a good time. Not a big deal about the name.

    It's our event I know it's a great name for a Saturday morning car show but when there's these many in southern california and then you start hearing about them all over the country it kind of gives you the feeling like their stealing our idea. Could you imagine if somehow the organizers had copyrighted the phrase they could be rolling in the benjamins but it would defeat the meaning behind the name.

    I totally understand... Like the one we have here in La Canada its not really called "Cars and Coffee", in fact I have no idea what its called. But we just call it cause its catchy. I really can care less about the name, I go for the people and the cars.

    It's funny - not one show in SoCal wanted to call itself Cars & Coffee until the C&C show at PAG started. Now it's somehow the only name anyone can come up with. First Valencia, now Industry. Other states, I have no problem with (and hell, maybe even NoCal). But 35 miles away? Come on....

    Why not come up with an original name for the new show.... like Donut Derelicts ;)

    Or keeping with the city naming style...

    My bad - didn't know it is copyrighted. Doing a search in google reveal a lot of variations.

    Whatever it is...

    cars and coffee
    coffee and cars
    cars and donuts
    coffee and donuts
    cars and people

    Just want to see some nice cars on Saturday morning without drama. Open invite to all. :)

    No idea about copyright or whatever - I just know that there are a lot of people who put a huge amount time and effort every week into making the show happen. For others to leverage off the name for whatever reason just doesn't seem right.

    Why can't we just have fun with fellow car enthusiast instead of arguing over name. Who cares who came up with the name first. Let's just have fun.

    I just meant that it seems that the name cars & coffee started with the show at PAG and now these type of shows are everywhere. Basically I'm with Jay on this. So much time and energy is put into the show at PAG that that name should really just be at the PAG show. Since the PAG show is my local show a long with a few other on here thats what I meant by it but I know that there are people that this isn't their local show.

    Just my .02

    There's 1 "Cars and Coffee", even if it's not as great as Crystal Cove. The others are just gatherings.

    It is confusing to use the same name for a similar event that is 30 miles away and on the same day and time.

    Cars & Coffee (PAG) has become such a recognized name because of the efforts of John, Tom, and so many others dedicated to making this what it has deservedly become. The name isn't what made it successful, but I do acknowledge that thanks to the volunteer efforts of some that now the name has "currency". I can see why others would want to use it, and why others might feel protective.

    My concern recently is that it has become too big and too diluted. And don't get me started about "for sale" signs. I wonder if other events will help or hurt this situation...

    I know I still look forward to going early Sat mornings to meet/make friends and talk cars!
