Restored 1962 Corvette to be revealed on 4th anniversary of sinkhole

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WTVQ)- The public is invited to join the National Corvette Museum for the final chapter of the Skydome sinkhole story.

The National Corvette Museum will host an anniversary event remembering the sinkhole collapse in 2014.

The event will be held Monday, February 12 at 9 AM at the Museum Skydome in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

During the event the museum will reveal the restored 1962 ‘Sinkhole’ Corvette.

This Corvette and 7 other Corvettes were swallowed up when a sinkhole opened up inside the National Corvette Museum 4 years ago on February 12th.

The museum took advantage of the situation and turned it into a tourist attraction.

Enthusiasts were invited to see the sinkhole and the damaged Corvettes.

There is still a manhole with a viewing window into what’s left of the sinkhole; the majority has been filled.

In 2017 the museum announced the restoration of the final repairable Corvette- the Tuxedo Black 1962; two Corvettes had previously been repaired by General Motors.

The event will feature a recap of the February 12, 2014 sinkhole, the restored 1962 Corvette, an overview of the museum’s restoration, and a question and answer period.

It will be live streamed on the Museum’s Facebook page.
