    It looks so "Sylvester II" and yes I know the differences. Cousins...?

    Joey, are you sure there was a twin brother? The article calls him Jerald with a J and you called him Jerry as well, a common nick name for Jerald or Gerald. Seems rather odd two brothers would be named Jerald and Gerald. Possible I guess but really confusing!

    Love the article BTW.

  10. very cool northwest rod, big props if actually drove it in any season outside of summer here. Usually a short window here for roadsters with no tops. My grandfather in the mid 70s bought a 28/29 roadster in in the Portland area that had the doors welded up. Probably not many around in that time. By then it had a 305 chevy and a automatic if it was the same car.

    There were twins, and the spelling is correct. I received a letter this week from a friend who lives in Hermiston, that included the Obituary for Gerald, who passed away last month. Jerald passed some time back.

    As @Marty Strode stated, @J.Ukrop is correct about the McBee brothers being twins (they were born on July 24th 1940).

    Jerald C. "Jerry" McBee passed away on December 28th 2007 (see this post).

    Gerald R. "Gerry" McBee passed away last month on October 7th 2021 (see this post).

    Both brothers were lifelong hot rodders / drag racers.

    Wow! Thanks @Marty Strode and @HEMI32 . Very interesting! I remember Mom yelling at us kids and going through all 4 of our names plus all her siblings names before she got it right. All the McBee parents had to do was 1 name for both. RIP McBee brothers.
