34 – Studebaker

1960 – 02 – Here’s a picture of the Studebaker when it was still in Connecticut and in perfect condition before Ed and George towed it down to Daytona. I believe that they had put in the car a big V8 which had come out of a Cadillac. Photo courtesy of Susan Dombrowski.

1960 – 02-13 – Daytona Modified-Sportsman 200. Ed (34) and Larry Frank (30) were part of a 37-car crash on the first lap of this race. This photo was reportedly taken by George Flemke.

34 – Studebaker

This is the start of the race, with Ed in 13th position where he qualified out of approximately 150 entrants and 73 starters. The 37-car crashed happened shortly moments after this photo was taken. Please note that the caption underneath the photo is wrong: the Studebaker was not being driven by Rene Charland, who was not even in this race. Photo from Stock Car Racing magazine.
