ARTHUR CLUNE OUT ON THE TOWN
Section One Mastic Beach Lakeview Drive is the crossroad . This appears to be Birch Road looking east as that appears to be the corner of Woodhull Cemetary fence visible through the windsheild. The sign is pointing to Sal's Tavern (who is giving something away) which is just across the street from where Arthur is standing. The Sign is probably there to catch the eye of the folks coming from the Lakeview Firehouse. The ride is supposedly Brother Billy's Very Sharp Buick Convertible....check out them fender skirts!
LEAN ON ME
Dave Schulz & his lifelong pal Arthur may of have discovered what Sal was giving away.
