Dee’s niece Donna (English) Tronca remembers this:
Although I wasn’t there, I remember Uncle Dee and Aunt Barbara telling this story. The Bagby family was riding in the car. There was a discussion about a previous car the family owned. Uncle Dee offered $50 to anyone who could remember the license plate number of the previous car, and immediately Josh rattled off the numbers. I would have loved to have seen Uncle Dee’s and Aunt Barbara’s jaws drop. But I don’t know how the story ended. Did Josh ever see the $50?
The license plate number was CYF643.
Seemed like a slam-dunk boost in my finances at the time, but Mom and Dad were quick to introduce the concept of “read the fine print.”
