In this photo by Howie Hodge, with SJ Evonsion standing next to it, here is the Garbarino Mystic Missile, “before”…
Another “before” picture of the Bob Garbarino #4 Pinto with SJ Evonsion.

This photo was taken in 1974 or ’75, which means that Ed could have been in the Lukosavage #1 Pinto, the Garbarino #4 Pinto, or the Judkins 2x Pinto. My guess is that the photo is from Stafford, Labor Day 1974, and Ed was in the #4. Photo by Paul Bonneau.
The caption says that Ed is sitting in “his” car, while Leo Cleary is sitting on the same car. I believe this would have been the 1971 Thompson open-comp event, in which Ed finished second to Fred.
