Myself, Mom, and daughter's name all start with "J" so 3JsVette.
Not very cerebral but I'm terrible at coming up with "names".

I bought my 1963 Corvette long before my second son Kelly was born. But by the time he was 13 and getting interested in it, the car was in sad shape and in need of complete restoration. I started the job in 2000 just as his health began to deteriorate quickly due to cystic fibrosis. My hope was to finish the car while he was still healthy enough to enjoy it. I joined this forum in May 2001 when there was no better help anywhere on the Internet for someone restoring an old Corvette and I chose the name kellsdad in his honor. He passed later that year. The many hours I spent alone working on that car in the garage was the therapy that helped me through that very dark time. Each time I see kellsdad I am reminded of him and I always think warmly of the time we had together.

I was into GTO's but a good friend, who has owned approx. 75 Corvette's corrupted me to buy my 67. Didn't want to continue with a Pontiac theme, so my "327" came about.

NCRS judges checking out the "327"

Mine came from a business I used to have being a dealer for "Trim Parts". When I was selling at swap meets people would call me "Mr Trim", so ever since, the name has stuck and my friends still call me by that moniker.

The user name is not very creative but comes from the guy I bought my 62 from. He lived a couple blocks away from me and I would "stalk" the car and stop in every time his garage door was open. Did that for four years and after our introduction, he started calling me "Tommy". Only person who ever did! Anyway, it stuck hence tomy62. Sadly, he passed a few months after the sale.

No explanation needed here. Guess I'm not as imaginative as some of you.

Westlotorn, my wifes maiden name and my father in law Bruce Westlotorn. Bruce passed not long before I joined and I thought it would be a nice tribute, and since it is an unusual name it was available.

Default Jackfit?

If you want to drive a 50 year old car all the time, you need to be fit to get in and out of it.

I also owned several health clubs in years past.

400 mile ride through PA last fall. I drive my car better than my bike!

Swept57 is a reference to my 57 Coronet. Dodge used "Swept-Wing" as part of their advertising campaign.

As some of you may know, hikers on the Appalachian Trail are often given trail names. When my fellow hikers found out what I did for work they quickly start calling me Doc (Ph.D. in clinical psychology). The Maine part was added simply to note where I live but also to make the name somewhat more distinctive from all of the other Docs who frequent these forums.
