Workers Find 7th Sunken Corvette

By Melissa Warren | 

UPDATED 10:00PM -- Efforts to recover the three Corvettes that remain in the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum took a turn for the better this afternoon.

Workers discover 1.5 millionth Corvette in sinkhole.

Engineers say, after vacuuming more of the dirt from inside the sinkhole, they were able to locate the 1.5 Millionth Corvette. They say they're one step closer to being able to remove it, along with the Z06 that is still resting just above it.

"We're getting our conveyor system set up where we can remove this overburden from the hole, and get it out of the building, and then on Monday, we're going to start exposing those vehicles in hopes to lift them out sometime next week," Scott Murphy Daniel CEO Mike Murphy.

The discovery of the 1.5 Millionth Vette means the Z06 Hammer Mallet is the only car whose location is still a mystery.


Workers have uncovered the 7th Corvette from the National Corvette Museum sinkhole.

Museum officials say they can see the hood of the 1.5 millionth Corvette ever built.

Melissa Warren will have a complete report on today's discovery on WBKO at 10.
