Restoration Continues Six Months After Sinkhole Collapse

"They will be on display in here at least through the end of august. The Blue Devil ZR1 will get sent off to the Detroit area on September 2, right after Labor Day weekend so that they can begin the restoration process on that car. We still haven't 100% decided which other cars we plan on fixing," said Katie Frassanelli, National Corvette Museum.
 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- Restoration continues six months after a sinkhole collapses at the National Corvette Museum.
A motion sensitive security alarm detected early morning movement in the museum's Skydome, as eight classic Corvettes fell into a sinkhole.
The hole, measuring 30 feet wide and 40 feet deep, became a popular attraction, gaining national attention.
All eight Corvettes have since been removed, the sinkhole has been secured and is open for tourists to view.
The damaged cars are currently on display in the Skydome.
"They will be on display in here at least through the end of august. The Blue Devil ZR1 will get sent off to the Detroit area on September 2, right after Labor Day weekend so that they can begin the restoration process on that car. We still haven't 100% decided which other cars we plan on fixing," said Katie Frassanelli, National Corvette Museum.
Board members will meet late August, to discuss the future of each car.
