The most well-known fictional woodpecker is based on a real woodpecker, but not the one many people think it is. Cartoonist and animator Walter Lantz created his most famous character at the suggestion of his wife, Grace, after the two spent their honeymoon at a cabin in California where the peace and quiet was disturbed by an acorn woodpecker, the LA Times(Opens in a new window) reports. Walter was annoyed by the bird's incessant noise, and Grace suggested he let it serve as inspiration for a new animated character. Soon, Woody Woodpecker was born.

In the 1950s, animated shows featuring Woody Woodpecker were among the top-rated daytime television programs, according to the LA Times. Through the years, Woody was voiced by several actors, most famously Mel Blanc, the voice of Bugs Bunny and other Warner Bros. characters. After Blanc's tenure, the voice of Woody was done by none other than Grace Lantz herself. Her husband initially rebuffed the idea of Grace taking over voicing the character, but Grace snuck her own audition tape into a stack of others, and Walter picked her as the new voice without knowing it was his wife.

I've known the rumors for quite some time and finally decided to test. Happy to report and confirm that this product works miracles on scuffed/scratched slabs:

When you take your sweet time while detailing (like I do) you definitely want corded. Not to mention the additional weight of batteries.

I usually do four+ passes. It is physically grueling.

Pocket books where on a rack right next to the comics you couldn't miss them.
This one was bought in 1950, a GOLD MEDAL BOOK published by FAWCETT for 25 cents.
We knew they were out there years ago!

I loved listening to the Speed Gibson radio serial. Dates from about 1936, and ran approximately 167 episodes. Have listened to them all...more than once!

War is never cool but I gotta say I would never have thought of this.

Apparently Ukraine is firing over Russians and mining the land behind them....

Edit: it can be yours for around $250k. Maybe…

Car and watch enthusiast worlds collided yesterday in an auction. Some of Paul Newman’s Rolexes were auctioned off. Seven figures.

At least they were nice pieces.

Then there is this new release with another direct tie with racing. Looks really nice!
