Here's a shot of the ex-Wayne Gapp Super Cat Cougar at R-Town, NJ, sometime around '69-'70. This car, originally built by Wayne Gapp to run the NASCAR Grand Stock Ultra Stock circuit, was owned by John Skitsmas at this time. I believe this was a gasser circuit meet. The car still ran pretty good, too. Gapp ran it with great success on the NASCAR circuit. Not sure if Jack Roush was involved. Skitsmas had a speed shop and at least one other ex-Ford SOHC car, one of the Mustangs that I always thought was one of the HM built (maybe kit) cars. It was blue, called the Jersey Rattler. Wonder if they still exist.
