Sinkhole corvettes

Sunken Corvette Museum Cars to be Displayed Before Repairs

Since a massive sinkhole swallowed up 8 historic Chevrolet Corvettes at the National Corvette Museum, fans around the world have wondered just how badly damaged those rare American sports cars are and due to the popularity of that discussion – the museum will have these Corvettes on display in their damaged state for a short time before the cars are sent off for repairs.

There have been a variety of videos and still images showing the tragic carnage inside of the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green Kentucky. While we can see parts of many of those 8 Corvettes, a couple of them are completely out of sight along with vast portions of the cars that we can see so it is hard to say how much damage has been done to the cars that we can see – and impossible to guess just how much damage has been done to the cars that are totally buried.

General Motors has already stated that these 8 classic Corvettes will be fully restored at the same body shop that cares for the GM Historical Collection so we know that at one point in the near future, these cars will be as good as new. Even with that in mind, many people (myself included) are wondering just how badly mangled these cars will be when they are removed from the huge hole in the Earth and let the world see how much damage has been done to these Corvettes, the National Corvette Museum is going to have them all on display for a short time before being shipped off for repairs.
