Corvette As A Child?

Wisconsin Couple Effectively Adopts Corvette Museum

A childless couple from Wisconsin isn't taking their riches with them when they pass-but instead of leaving the money to charity, they're giving a big chunk of their fortune to the National Corvette Museum . The AP reports that Ivan and Mary Shrodt, of Sherwood, Wisc., are giving $1.3 million to the museum in Bowling Green , Ky. , to go toward a $14 million expansion. The couple loves Corvettes-obviously-and their gift will help the museum steam ahead with the expansion, due to be complete in 2009. Last Saturday the couple visited the museum to pick up their latest model, a 2007 black Z06.
