Hmmm. Why am I "Shakey61"? Well, my truck ('Mater Jr.) is a '61. As to "Shakey", it's been my nickname my whole adult life, and was my callsign as a military pilot. How I got that nickname is another story. I can attest that it has nothing to do with the way I fly!
This is what happens when you live with a house-full of women, the wife and daughters name all the cars:
1960 Impala - "Frankie" (Frank Sinatra)
1961 Apache - " 'Mater Jr." (wrecker)
1965 Corvair Monza Convertible
1972 SuperBeetle Convertible - "Juliet"
1976 SuperBeetle Convertible - "Olaf"
1988 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce - "Romeo"
