    “Each person has each car” means That A has all 3 cars, and that B has all 3 cars and that C has all 3 cars.

  • Each person has each car

Each person (All the people involved/Everyone) has each car (every available car).

  • Everyone works every day

Everyone (All the people involved/ Each person) works every day (every single day/ each day).

Each doesn't create ambiguity here.

    'Each person has each car' sounds unidiomatic without licensing context. eg 'What forms of transport are available to the contestants when it is their turn to complete the 50-mile time trial?' Apr 28, 2021 at 11:11
