National Corvette Museum Might Leave Some Damaged Corvettes Unrestored

Mallett-Hammer-Z06 featured

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.

OK, so maybe some of those clouds require a few more looks than others to find that silver lining, but either way, it appears a bit of the good fortune that comes out of bad situations has rubbed off on the National Corvette Museum.

Remember that Autoweek poll that gauged whether people think the Corvettes damaged from the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum should be left unrestored? Well, the results are in, and more than 50 percent of the folks who voted in Autoweek’s survey believed at least one of the cars should be preserved in its current state as a reminder of the catastrophe.
