There are few other names that are as recognizable as Bill “Grumpy” Jenkins in the drag racing and high performance worlds, and when “The Grump” passed away earlier this year, the automotive industry lost a legend. But Jenkins still lives on through his contributions and decades of influence in the industry and Moroso is proud to be a part of Jenkins’ continued memory with a re-release of the famous “Grumpy’s Toys” are Built with Moroso Products poster.
They sold out quickly the first time and are in high demand once again, so get yours from Moroso before they’re gone.
Back in the 1970s, Dick Moroso commissioned a poster called “Grumpy’s Toys” are Built with Moroso Products to pay homage to his close friend.
The posters were a huge hit and sold out in a flash, causing the demand for another round of these unique tributes to sky rocket. In 2011, Moroso heard the calling and released the “Grumpy’s Toys” shirt with original artwork on the back.
After Jenkins’ death this spring, Moroso has been inundated with pleas for another round of “Grumpy’s Toys” posters and the company has just announced that your wait for the re-release is over. Posters and shirts with the original artwork paying homage to Jenkins are now available for purchase on the company’s website.
The vintage 18×24-inch “Grumpy’s Toys” posters are available for $16, which includes shipping to the 48 contiguous states and a $5 donation to the Drag Racing Association of Women (DRAW), a non-profit organization that provides financial and emotional support for individuals involved in drag racing accidents.
Shirts are available with the vintage design on the back for $20, which includes shipping and a $2 donation to DRAW.
The “Grumpy’s Toys” poster is an amazing piece of automotive memorabilia and with Jenkins’ recent passing, the demand for them is going to be even higher. So be sure to order your poster or shirt today, and be a part of the historic tribute to the drag racing and engine building legend.
