@ Shilpa, to my mind it Danny is used more a common noun, to refer to taxi drivers in general. The informality that sounds as you pronounce the name may also be important.

Red skirts and red sox perhaps are used for two reasons, to transfer sensuousness to the car and second the dust on the car which has made it read. Remember, that the car goes on the hills. Red skirts and sox may also evoke the ideas of sexually desirable women who are commonly represented in red. Here, the reference could be to heighten Danny's attachment to the car, by extension, the attachment of the means of production to the laborer.

How do you react to this?

sir,
I agree with both your references. I also thought the red sox could also refer to the Boston American League (baseball team, the members of it wore red sox. http://www.sportslogos.net/team.php?id=53 He might be drawing parallels to the attraction towards the game and women.

Possible.

@Shilpa, Possible, but the poem refers to women wearing sox!
