It appears the jury is still out on whether all of the “Magnificent Eight” Corvettes damaged in the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum will be restored. Some of the cars (like the 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06) are so badly mangled that it’s hard to imagine what it would take to actually restore them. Of course, the Museum has already said it will display all the damaged Corvettes through the summer for visitors to see. Now it seems museum officials might leave a few of the cars unrestored and on display permanently.

If you’re up for a good story that captures the true passion for Corvettes, look no further than the one of Lynda Patterson and her Ruby Red 40th Anniversary model. After years of dreaming of donating the car to the National Corvette Museum, the Louisville native recently did it in memory of her late husband, Mike Patterson, who died of a brain tumor in 2011.
