"No other sports car has sold that many cars, that many units, no other single brand. So, it's something for us all to be proud of. It's built here in America, by American people, so we are glad to have her back," said Bob Bubnis, National Corvette Museum spokesperson.
 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- Today, the seventh Corvette was extracted from the massive sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum.

After struggling with huge boulders, crews dug out the 1.5 Millionth Corvette yesterday evening.

A crane was attached to the once white sports car this morning and it was successfully lifted it out of the hole. Workers have placed the car on display inside the museum, next to the other recovered cars.

"No other sports car has sold that many cars, that many units, no other single brand. So, it's something for us all to be proud of. It's built here in America, by American people, so we are glad to have her back," said Bob Bubnis, National Corvette Museum spokesperson.

Late this afternoon, construction crews discovered a small portion of the red Z06 Mallett Hammer, the last corvette remaining in the sinkhole.
