Re: Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins

Was this the grumpy from all of those posts about tuning roughly 10 years ago? If so, I've read some of his threads and he was a genius when it comes to tuning! I'd like to say thanks to him for dedicating time to helping out the TGO community. R.I.P. Grumpy.

That's a shame, the guy was revolutionary in the hotrodding, racing world. I remember watching him dragrace prostock cars as a kid. Anihilating bigblocks w/ his SBC Vega.

No, different Grumpy, that one passed away a number of years ago.

Sad time for both Grumpys lost.

It was my pleasure to have raced with Bill back in those days.
Great man, the world has lost a legend for sure.
