Crews Are Relieved After Last Corvette is Lifted From Sinkhole

"We didn't really know if would we get all eight cars out. It's just been something that we've worried about since the very start. Today is kind of a relief. I hate it that the car is in such bad shape. It probably took the worst hit from all the big rocks and everything," said Mike Murphy, Scott, Murphy & Daniel Construction CEO.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- The red Z06 Mallett Hammer was found beneath the rubble earlier this week.

The Corvette was upside down in the sinkhole and museum officials say its condition is worse than the other recovered cars.

Kevin Helmintoller donated the Corvette at the end of 2013 and says he does not regret it. Crews are relieved knowing all cars have been removed.

Crews are meeting Tuesday to discuss plans to restore the sinkhole.
