BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WTVQ) — General Motors says restoration is well underway, to reverse damages caused by a sudden sinkhole that appeared under the National Corvette Museum on February 12 2014.
The millionth Corvette’s interior was adorned by signatures of the assembly workers who completed the car, and craftspeople and technicians say they are working to preserve the original state of the vehicle, instead of building it from the ground-up.
This car was one of eight swallowed by a sinkhole that formed inside the museum, and General Motors says the car will make its post-repair debut at the museum as part of their Anniversary Celebration on September 3-5.
Officials from the museum say five other Corvettes swallowed by the sinkhole will remain in their as-recovered state to preserve the historical significance of the cars. They will become part of a future sinkhole-themed display at the museum.
The security video of the sinkhole forming is still available on youtube.
