Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of the day the world opened up and swallowed eight museum-quality ‘Vettes. Today, the National Corvette Museum welcomed back the first vehicle pulled from the sinkhole, a fully restored 2009 ZR-1 Blue Devil.
We could just label it “weird,” but the fact that someone would take the engine of a 1965 Corvette and use it to power a mobile bathroom might deserve its own special category.
The repairs are expected to take a while, but there’s comfort in knowing the 1 Millionth Corvette, which is valued at $750,000, won’t wind up living out the rest of its days at the museum in its current condition, which would be another catastrophe in and of itself.
The National Corvette Museum wrapped up November with a month of tributes honoring our military members, and that’s something we can all be thankful for.
A lot of the Corvettes, which include models from 1957 to 2009, are on loan from local owners in the Tupelo area with some of the cars priced at more than $100,000 dollars.
