Final Corvette raised from sinkhole
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
But on February 12, 2014 things got even more interesting as eight priceless Corvettes were swallowed up by a giant sinkhole. Just this week, the last Corvette was removed from the dirt and debris.
The "Great 8" classic Corvettes were on display in the Skydome section of the National Corvette Museum. Luckily, the hole opened up in the middle of the night so no one was injured.
Now that the cars have all been removed, repairs can be made to fill and close the giant sinkhole which measured 40 feet across and 50 feet deep. Barrier walls with plexiglass viewing windows have been installed so that visitors to the museum can watch as repairs are being made to the area.
