National Corvette Museum Plans to Remove Corvettes from Sinkhole

BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- The National Corvette Museum plans to remove Corvettes from the sinkhole, on Monday.

A large sinkhole collapsed about two weeks ago, swallowing eight corvettes.

The 2009 ZR1 "Blue Devil" will be the first car removed. There could be complications removing the 1962 black Corvette.

"There going to have to bring in two cranes for that one because there is a five hundred ton concrete slab resting on it. So, they will need to lift simultaneously, the car and the concrete, to get it out. Then the last car will be the 40th Anniversary Ruby Red," said Katie Frassinelli, National Corvette Museum Marketing and Communications Manager.

Museum officials anticipate this step to take three days. They will then work on more sinkhole stabilization, before recovering the other five cars from the dirt.
