The car was built by a group of people including Ed. The original intention was that it would be driven at Daytona by Benny Germano. Benny drove the car for a couple of laps, was unhappy with the experience, and bowed out of trying to qualify it. Ed then took his place and qualified in 13th (out of 75 that qualified and many more that failed to qualify). Photo courtesy of Susan Dombrowski.
