Oh geez , it's an old nickname I first discovered in "The Jeep Bible" by Granville King & Willie Worthy. I started carrying one and first used it in my '57 Willys Jeep truck, and found that a "Super Hurricane" inline six flathead made a handy air compressor. Later on I noticed some of my trailbike riding friends carried them as well, and I think it's also been referred to on the Airheads web site.
