When a 40-foot wide, 60-foot deep sinkhole opened beneath the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky, it swallowed up eight magnificent cars totaling around $1 million in value. Three of the cars (and counting) have been retrieved and remarkably, all appear salvageable. A 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil (the first pulled out) had minor damages but started up again. A 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette didn’t fair quite so well, but Chevy’s spokesman said the car can and will be repaired. No news on when the other cars will eventually be retrieved, with the sinkhole still yet to be completely stabilized.
