Fitting Name

Car buff couple combines names to become the Rodesters

A Minnesota couple has settled the question of what last name to use after they got married. They've merged their names into one that reflects their interest in vintage muscle cars.

Kathy Jo Webster didn't want to take her husband's name, Rodewald. And Jim Rodewald didn't care for his wife's suggestion that he adopt her last name. So they combined Rodewald and Webster to create their new name: Rodester. Jim says it's a fitting name for a couple of car buffs who belong to the Phantoms Motor and Model Club.

Now they're planning the next addition to their four-car fleet: a kit car replica of a roadster.
