    YUR:

    I tried to give you a heads-up on todays spoiler before you posted it, but instead, it got published as part of yesterday’s responses. Oh well, that’s the way life goes at times. In any event, to repeat what was said there, the word DOOZY came into being from its original form DUESY as it related to the Duesenberg automobiles made first in Iowa and then Indiana by brothers Frederick and August Dueseberg from 1913 to 1937. “That’s a real Duesy” was a term that came to mean sheer elegance and style and was later corrupted by use and spelling to its current status.
