Secrets Of Speed Society
About "Us"

Yapp Studios, Inc. was founded in 1982 by Charles H. Yapp. The company was entirely engaged in the business of Illustrative Commercial Photography and was located in downtown Chicago, Illinois. 

Today, we are located in Southern Ohio, outside of Cincinnati, making vintage Model A & B speed parts and publishing good things to enhance the vintage car hobby. . . We no longer provide photography .  . .hung the cameras up.

Yapp attended University of Northern MO, enlisted in the United States Navy (1966-70), and graduated with honors from Brooks Institute, Santa Barbara, CA (1974) with a BA degree in Photographic Illustration. Yapp started three successful businesses in the Chicago, IL area and has moved his home and business to a wooded acreage outside of Cincinnati, OH in 2003.

Yapp Studios, Inc. is the umbrella corporation for: 
Secrets Of Speed Society (since 1991), a society of several thousand individuals who enjoy vintage racing credited and founded by Charlie.
The Society is internationally acclaimed and has won numerous awards for its journal Secrets, Vintage Speed & Sport, Magazine.

Scalded Dog Speed Parts (since 1998) designs and produces most of the vintage Model A and B Ford speed parts seen within this online catalog.
Some parts are made by friends and are of the highest quality.
​Charlie finished his dream car, a 1929 Ford Cabin Speedster that he built from scratch over ten years. It has won several awards including 2 Best Of Show and the coveted "Top Fifty" of 2,418+ cars at the 2015 and 2016 Pumpkin Run in Ohio. It is a real crowd pleaser.
