If you recall Rocky Jones and the Silvercup Rocket from the 1950's space opera and tv show, you may want to donate to, or visit, the restoration of the rocket, at the Kalamazoo Air Zoo


It was raffled off in the 1960's, became a roadside attraction, was stripped and graffittied, then was bought by a salvage yard owner who let it rust and deteriorate farther, then finally was bought by the Kalamazoo Air Zoo (it is on it's way to becoming the largest air museum in the US) and is now in restoration by the museum specialists. http://www.mst3ktemple.com/silvercup_rocket.html and
