Should the Sinkhole Corvettes be Restored?
Plans to restore the eight Corvettes damaged at the National Corvette Museum has sparked what could likely become an interesting debate – should or shouldn’t all the cars be restored?
Yup, we realized that for true classic Corvette fans this might not be much of debate at all. But a story by Autoweek suggests that at least one of the damaged Corvettes be kept untouched at the museum as a permanent reminder of the bizarre disaster.
The idea, initially poised by an Autoweek reader, recommends keeping the 1984 PPG Pace Car in its damaged state for visitors to see. On the other hand, Autoweek suggests leaving the 1993 40th Anniversary Corvette in its current state considering the degree of damage it has suffered.
Of course, GM is still sticking to plans to restore all eight cars, but Autoweek has created a poll just to gauge other opinions on the idea.
Honestly, I’m unsure how I feel about it, but I do know as a longtime fan of Corvettes that it’s been tough to look at any of the models severely damaged by the sinkhole.
