Wayne Gapp and the Super Cat

The caption reads:

“Wayne Gapp’s Super Cat Cougar put away big, closely matched gas “funny” field, due mainly to Gapp’s find driving.”

Wayne Gapp over Ken Dondero – Thunder Valley 1976 Pro Stock match race

Dondero was driving for Jenkins at this point but later in the year would move over to drive for Gapp & Roush. Thanks to Tom Kasch for this scan.

Gapp and Roush 1973 Pinto – picture from Pomona

Tom Kasch has been scanning some photos and sending them along. This image was taken at nearly the same time as this classic image (just before I think). This photo was used in a Accel ad.

This ad ran in April 1974 but I don’t know the publication.

Wayne Gapp and the ex-Barrie Pool Gapp and Roush Pinto

Wayne Gapp (far left, blue shirt) and the ex-Barrie Poole Pinto. This car was purchased and repainted into the livery you see below. Later destroyed in an accident in St. Louis. 

The image itself was taken at Great Lakes Dragway in Union Grove, WI. It was published as part of compilation of images published on YouTube. The video contains a lot of other great images from the time period.

The 351 Cleveland Head

Nice drawing of the Ford 351 Cleveland head. Posted here to show the original design of the head with the canted valves and, in particular, the design of the exhaust port.

Wayne Gapp, Bill Jameson and the 1976 Gapp & Roush Pinto

This is an image from Dragway Classics which I believe is the business name for Larry Malski’s business(?) Could be wrong. 

Anyway, Larry Malski took the image.
