    1) There weren't cars yesterday incorrect


    2) There were no cars yesterday? correct


    The cars were not there yesterday, but not *There were not (weren't) cars yesterday

    Does this answer your question?

    How come 1 is not correct? I think it is grammatically correct, but its use is strongly dependent on the context.
