KANSAS CITY (AP) - Mary VanPelt of Lee's Summit won a 2006 Dodge Viper on "The Price is Right" last summer. Now, she faces a tax bill that could reach $44,000. VanPelt is seeking donations to help pay off the I.R.S., so she can keep the $86,000 car. She and her husband, John, are both teachers and say they can't afford the pricey tax bill. They have set up a Web site for donations. The site is www.SaveOurViper.com. Mary VanPelt is a lifelong fan of "The Price is Right." She teaches special education at Overland Trail Middle School in the Blue Valley district. Her husband teaches journalism in the Kansas City, Kansas, district.
