Few men have impacted the sport of drag racing like Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins. His history at the drag strip began in the late 1950s, and continues today. Throughout his career, both innovation and success have followed him closely, and this book documents the long and colorful history of the competition cars that proudly bear the name Grumpy's Toy.

Grumpy's Toys stands as a full and complete history of Jenkins career to date as told through his cars, and has been heartily authorized by the man himself (Jenkins wrote the book's foreword.) Author Doug Boyce has been following Jenkins throughout his racing career, and has amassed an impressive collection of vintage photography that is shared on the pages. Through his own knowledge, extensive research, and by working with Grumpy himself, Grumpy's Toys offers readers an unparalleled look behind the man and his machines.

This book boasts the largest collection of Jenkins-centered vintage photography ever assembled. Input from Grumpy punctuates the tales behind the now legendary cars, and author Boyce's fan friendly writing style entertains. Many myths about both Jenkins and his formidable racing cars have grown over the decades, and this book separates the fact from the fiction. This book is essential for the true drag racing fan.
