For the fourth BSYAWYD Reunion, we returned to the Green Turtle on a Friday night in October. Here is the photo that originally appeared on the Beltsville Shell book site:
Here is an additional photo that included other attendees, Sarah (Judy to me) Wiley, my sister, Barbara, and the ever-smiling Lynn Garland!
On Saturday, Nace, Frank, and Sonny (pictured below) made a trip to the "New Old Beltsville Shell Station" (not the original station, but the one built after the original station was abandoned and demolished).
Next, we drove out to see Sam Powell at his house to see his turbo-charged Dodge Dart (slant six engine). Sam is on the far left.
And we finished the day off with a visit to see Bill Goodwin and to experience his hot-rod US Mail Truck! Bill always has the coolest cars -- things that you wish you had thought of first! I got a ride in the Chevy-powered mail truck!
