Corvette Museum Now says it Won’t Preserve Part of Sinkhole
So, maybe we jumped the gun a bit when reporting that the National Corvette Museum had figured out what the plans were for the sinkhole because now, like a one-to-four skip-shift, they’re switching gears.
After weeks of speculation, the National Corvette Museum seems to be set on partially filling the sinkhole with plans to build a bridge over part of the thing.
The National Corvette Museum is putting the final touches on the $17-million Motorsports Park, which is scheduled to hold its grand opening on August 28.
The 2009 Blue Devil ZR1 prototype damaged in the National Corvette Museum sinkhole disaster is headed back to Detroit for restoration.
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.
