My first point on this would be if he was involved in a court case you better believe his lawer told him to keep his mouth shut.

My Second point is Mike Lav. may be the nicest guy in the world and may be the best guy in the world to deal with but the courts obviously found that he did NOT have the writes to the name. So he gets is. You can not be mad at him for that.....

Personally I will still buy my guages from Lavorsi I just wonder how my dash is going to look with some Gaffrig/Lavorsi's and som Lavorsi's. I think that everyone in the know knew what guages that they wanted to buy.

While I might be privately happy that big corporate giant Burger King was was able to whip azz on ol Chucks Burgers, I don't think I would venture into a Chucks Burgers Fan Club Forum and talk about the can of whoop a$$ I put on ol Chuck.

See where I'm coming from? I might actually further alienate the folks in The Chucks Fan Club.
Maybe he didn't know this was a Livorsi only
bunch of boaters. Maybe he thought he had a few
fans around here. Maybe he thought name
recognition means somthing to people. In many
cases, when it comes to boating, it does. I must
admit,your wearing me down though. I don't
think what he did was bad. I'm sure he had a long
hard battle. One that he won. He probably feels
he has a right to the Gaffrig name, and is proud
of it. If someone started using by businesses name,
I'd be pissed. Especially after developing it for years.
If that name meant nothing,why did Lovorsi use it.
Because it got his business off the ground. Thats why.
Now he doesn't need it, but at who's expense. Like
I said, I love the Livorsi product,I just spent 2k with
them,but you've got to see the other guys point.
Love ya bro' Goodnight!

rjcardinal Which Gaffrig does Fountain use?

Ron


ALL NEW FOUNTAIN PRODUCED AFTER THIS WEEK WILL BE SPORTING ''LIVORSI '' GAUGES. MIKE IS THE ONLY ONE OF THESE "GAFFRIG" COMPANIES THAT CONTINUES TO COME OUT WITH NEW PRODUCTS AND DEVELOPMENT. HE MIGHT HAVE LOST THE COURT BATTLE , BUT NOW THERE WON'T BE ANY MORE CONFUSION AS TO WHICH GAFFRIG GAUGE ANYONE HAS

I just wish one of them would come out with some dual gauges like the egt one they sell. I can only install so many guages, but with dual gauges I could install all the gauges I want and buy more sending units.

The Gaffrig that started this thread says "Gaffrig Performance" on their guages.

The Livorsi ones say "Gaffrig Precision Instruments"
