Default Gaffrig Performance, Ups Store Location ..is This For Real???

HAS ANYONE BEEN TO THE GAFFRIG PERFORMANCE (MIKE SHULTZ)WAREHOUSE OR OFFICES? THE ADDRESS GIVEN ON ALL HIS CATALOGS AND MAILINGS IS TO A UPS STORE IN ELK GROVE I WENT IN TO CHECK IT OUT AND THE GUY THERE SAID THERE IS NO SUITE JUST A PARCEL POST BOX AT THE UPS STORE....IS HE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS??

WHY DOES HE NOT HAVE A SHOWROOM OR A WAREHOUSE? I KNOW THE FORMER GAFFRIG PRECISION NOW LIVORSI MARINE HAS A HUGE WAREHOUSE AND SHOWROOM IN GRAYSLAKE...WHERE WOULD ONE SEE GAFFRIG PERFORMANCE STUFF OR FIND THEIR ACTUAL OFFICE? ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN THERE LET ME KNOW...JUST WONDERING WHY SOMEONE WOULD OPERATE A BUSINESS OUT OF A UPS STOREFRONT...SEEMS SHADY TO ME

He has been doing the Mailbox etc/UPS Store location from the word go. I knew Mike Schultz before he got into the business. I have never seen or been to his shop. I am sure that Schultz only does a fraction of the business that Livorsi does. Just my .02

He owns the name, and even makes a few guages, but Livorsi is the real deal.

When they both claimed the name ''Gaffrig'', I believe that Shultz was able to sell some gauges due to the confusion of being associated with Mike Livorsi.

Now that Shultz has won the rights to the name in court, it seems that the confusion has been cleared up.

Mr. Shultz won the court case but in doing so it seems that he has fallen through the crack of his own ass.

I've bought a few marine gauges over the years(to say the least) & I never had any more problems with the Gaffrig Performance gauges, mufflers, etc...than any of the other brands, including Livorsi/Gaffrig. I've purchased & installed: Stewart-Warner Marine, Faria, Autometer, Beede, Medallion, tons & tons of Mercury/Mercruiser, Livorsi/Gaffrig, Gaffrig Performance...You name it. They all perform comparably. Guess what? All of them have their idiosyncrasies & were warrantied without question. Personal preference is what it boils down to. Period. Just my .02 Ed
