Eva and Ches Haines, with their first grandchild, Jerry Westhouse, in the 1970's. Ches continued his love for beautiful automobiles until the end of his life and passed on his legacy to his grandson, Jerry. After the Maybelline company sold in 1967, Ches bought matching Rolls Royce's for Eva and himself, with vanity plates that said, Eva and Ches. Now that's true love!!
Jerry Westhouse today.
Jerry Westhouse, still has the racing spirit, and parlayed it into a career, after meeting Paul Newman, the actor and racing enthusiast, in the 1970's. My cousin Jerry has worked for Paul Newman and Newman/Haas racing for years, and is one of the team players, who helps build Indie 500 race cars.
Once the car was completed, Westhouse was chosen to drive the new ride, which was shaken down with conventional bodywork. (click below for full story.)
