Crews Work to Retrieve Remaining Corvettes from Sinkhole
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, according to a WBKO News report.
The cars, which include the 1993 ZR-1 Spyder, the 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06, and the 2009 white 1.5-millionth Corvette, haven’t been visible in weeks.
“Tomorrow (Wednesday) they’re planning on using a special vacuum to start removing some of the dirt from the sinkhole. Basically, where the dirt on the sides of the walls has accumulated they’re going to start taking that out. Hopefully, they’ll see the two cars that have yet to be found,” said National Corvette Museum Communications Director, Katie Frassinelli.
We’ll certainly be keeping our fingers crossed that the remaining ‘Vettes have suffered the least amount of damage possible.
