The team charged with retrieving the Corvettes from the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum is gearing up for what will likely be its most tedious process yet. After spending the past few days making the hole more accessible, the construction crew will now turn its attention to vacuuming some of the dirt inside the hole to locate the three cars buried deep in the debris.
Any Corvette enthusiasts in the Windy City might want to clear April 6, on their calendar. Bill Jacobs Joliet, one of Chicago’s premier Chevy dealers, is hosting its annual Corvette Show and Swap Meet. The event, now in its 38th year, is said to bring out some of the most impressive Corvettes you’ll find in Illinois.
The bets are starting to roll in on two hot Corvettes up for auction in April, and the speculation is that both could fetch up to $1 million each when they cross the block. The first up is the Bunkie Knudsen Corvette, a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray built specifically for General Motors Chevrolet Division General Manager Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen.
It’s been said that every good thing must come to an end; that is, except for Corvettes, which explains why a ’57 Stocker model, once considered long gone, has resurfaced.
All mortals take note, there is one thing you should never, ever do, and that’s touch another person’s Corvette in any form or fashion. That is, unless (1) you’ve been given permission by the owner, (2) you’ve provided at least three solid references or referrals, and (3) signed a waiver that if the Corvette happens to sustain any damage due to your negligence, you agree to waive any and all legal rights typical granted to criminals or the mentally insane.
