National Corvette Museum To Display Damaged ‘Vettes

Corvette Sinkhoe 2

The Corvettes that fell into the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum are going to be restored by Chevrolet, but you may have a chance to see them in their current state before they’re shipped off to Michigan.

The plan calls for displaying the vehicles at the museum from April through July so visitors can see just what kind of damage was caused by the sinkhole. This would be after they’re pulled from the ground, but before they head off to the GM Heritage Collection in Warren, Michigan.

Right now, the cars are still sitting in that big old hole while plans for retrieving them are worked out. The first Corvettes could be removed from the ground in just a few weeks.

I don’t know about you, but watching that video of all those cars plummeting into the ground made my stomach turn. I’m not so sure I want to see just how bad it turned out for the cars.

Looking at these pictures provided by the National Corvette Museum, you can see that although some of the cars are clearly visible, others look to be well and truly squashed in the rubble.

Check out the photo gallery below, but make sure you have a box of tissues handy…

Here’s some drone camera footage of the aftermath…

Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole also writes for NerdApproved and GeekMom.
