Behind-The-Scenes: The Corvette Recovery At The National Corvette Museum

by Mike –

By now I suspect you have all read about the sink hole in the National Corvette Museum that swallowed up a few very special Corvettes. They are now being pulled out.

Not how you expect to see a Corvette

Watch this 4:15 video for an update – unless you get squeamish then don’t watch it, although I think it will have a happy ending – eventually.

Corvettes Removed So Far:

2009 Blue Devil ZR1 Emerges Nearly Unscathed, Drives Off!
1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette Sustains Severe Damage
1962 Black Corvette Freed from Five Ton Slab of Concrete
1992 White One Millionth Corvette Salvaged
1984 PPG Pace Car Unearthed

    Interesting question? Personally I would have preferred to own one before it was dropped into the hole.

  3. Makes one wonder why those guys are standing near the edge of the hole? I don’t see any rebar in that concrete ????? IMO that floor should have supported the cars if it was built properly.

Speak Your Mind
