Whether you want to relive the magic of the ‘90s or just want some rad-era GRM gear to match your rad-era car, our new ‘90s vintage collection features the old-school Grassroots Motorsports logo: …

Not going to lie, I was hoping for some crazy 90s neon colors. The 90s throwback bumper sticker would be amazing.

OK, I think I am digging that.

One improvement I would probably make.  Take it to an AutoX and have someone drive over it with nice warm and sticky AutoX tire (diagonal bottom left to top right).

Real talk, I was not at all a fan of the tag line change. I do, however, accept that time changes us all...

 

This drop might actually get me to break my "no decals" rule on my rad 90s ride. I kinda want a windshield banner even if it does kill visibility in an already terrible situation.

Unfortunately we were unable to make windshield banners for this drop, but I couldn't help but think of this and giggle:

I needed that laugh today, thanks!

 

Didn't expect you could make a run honestly. I might go for something smaller and subtle, though.

I was thinking the very same thing.  Neon colors, "Rad 90's", Da Bomb, you know, 90's slogans. Just get jiggy with it. Looking forward to Friday.

Great, I'll order some. My favorite was your first GRM T. Or was it AutoX? 1980s? It had a small logo on the front and I don't think there was anything on the back. 

Here's my current oldest. It's not as white as the pic suggests!;

You know, I think this is the prototype for the windshield banner.

And I happen to be in the photo server right now, and here they are–from a tick more than 20 years ago.

One of my all time favorite terrible movies.

Like tb, I suspect, I've never been thrilled to be walking around claiming to read the "hardcore" anything (in terms of the boast, get your mind out of the gutter), never mind how much of my wardrobe consists of GRM shirts. Looking forward to this (and hoping some are offered in black, but not depending on it).

As long as I'm making unsolicited apparel suggestions, the previous-era poster style CM shirts were some of my all time favorites. If those came back, I might panic and buy several.

I was hoping for a hypercolor GRM shirt.

And I almost had vintage Auto-X stickers on the 911 at Radwood, but someone's color vinyl printer was down....

Personally, I am just about subtlety and understatement when it comes to my daily drivers and currently I only have a daily driver... and, yes, "hardcore" is a bit outside my wheelhouse if we are talking about self image.

 

Sadly, though, my biggest problem with these sweet retro deals is that I don't wear t shirts. I am a buttoned down collared guy in my everyday apparel. I do own a GRM mechanics style shirt, but the selection for anything other than a "t" in life is minimal.

That was one of my favorite T-shirts. I believe we did a very limited run in a long-sleeve T as well.

My eldest daughter likes to go "shopping at dad's" so I haven't had my angry racer guy t-shirt in over a year.  I'd buy three (so we'd each have two) if I could.

While we don't have the OG Angry Shifter Guy shirt anymore, we do have this modified design available.
