Some very nice rides and a serious turnout. Looks like your project is really taking off.

Totally up to you man... it's just an informal hangout... not a car show. You don't need a fancy car to attend, just the love of all types of cars and the ability to get up early


In other news....

It has come to my attention that an automotive marketing firm that goes by carsandcoffee.info has followed my trail to the Hampton Roads area. I originally approached them when thinking about starting the Cars & Coffee idea here in Va Beach thinking they had some kind of ownership rights to the name; they do not. They offered to sell me a marketing package for $3500 and I kindly declined.

Of late I have received phone calls asking me to discuss my "operation" with them and discuss the use of the name. It turns out they sold their marketing package to a local car dealership franchise.

I just wanted to bring it up to everyone's attention if you start seeing anything about Cars and Coffee Hampton Roads.... they are not the same thing.

Please continue to see Cars and Coffee Virginia Beach and the C&C VB facebook group for any info and updates.

The next gathering will be June 5th as planned at La Promenade.

Thank You,
Brian Bowers

Forget about the contact from the "automotive marketing firm". It is just some guy sitting on the domain on Godaddy.com hoping to make a buck off of someone else's idea, it happens all the time.

I registered a couple of sites. I got emails saying I had their domain, I told them I have it and they don't. Then they wanted to join forces to share the domain and my reply was less than positive. They finally gave up and moved on.

They run a site called carsandcoffee.info and I contacted them when I had the idea originally thinking they had some type of ownership rights; they don't. Here's the package they wanted to sell me for $3500/yr.. note the part where they explicitly say they do not have rigthts to the "Cars & Coffee" name:

Quote:
We do the following for $3,500.00 per year and a reduced rate in year two:


Give use of our logo
Give unlimited email addresses
Write press release announcing your group and what your group is doing
Give one year full tech support including upload of images, text, links, sponsor banners, etc.
Give revenue share for advertisers we post to your page or sponsors we bring to your event that you approve


We do "not" grant anyone permission to hold a Cars and Coffee event. The term Cars and Coffee is as commonplace as "Kleenex" and "Xerox" and has been used loosely by car clubs and even Dupont Registry for their weekend gatherings for well over a decade.
So basically they created a website for C&C hampton roads as a subsite of their website and made a "press release" which was nothing more than creating a HR section on their forums and making a post in it.

Yet they have hired some independent local marketing firm called seven (something) marketing to call and bug me... basically I told them I didn't want their product, they saw the good turnout/interest, then sent someone here to sell their "package" to somebody. They're more than welcome to do that... it's tacky, but to call me and try and tell me I can't use the cars and coffee words is unprofessional. I know for a fact that they do not have it trademarked... a gentleman in GA does.

That is what I had to do when I started my sites, registered several variances. Still some SOB registered the info extension and wanted to play games, he finally gave up. I Googled the dude and he was doing it for several sites. Funny part, I haven't had time to work on the sites for about two years now and just have them parked right now.

Cool Pics, Thanks!

What kind of exhaust system is that on the "WASTEG8" C4?
