1962 (approximately). The J-2 was usually driven by Red Foote. Noted racing historian Bruce Cohen was told that Ed bought and briefly owned the car. Although that has not been confirmed, it seems that Ed drove the car but did not like it and either declined to buy it or, if he had already bought it, sold it soon afterward.
