Corvette Sinkhole Beats Kentucky Derby at Helping Tourism
The Kentucky Derby might be a major draw for the old Bluegrass State, but even those winning thoroughbreds took a back seat to Corvettes when it came to luring people to Kentucky in 2014.
Corvette Museum executive director, Wendell Strode, officially started filling in the Corvette-munching sinkhole by throwing the first rock into the abyss on Monday.
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.
If you’ve been dying to see the sinkhole that swallowed up the Corvettes at the National Corvette Museum, you’d better hop on over there because this is your last chance to have a look before it gets filled.
The Blue Devil ZR1 Corvette, one of eight ‘Vettes swallowed in that sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum, will be making an appearance at SEMA this week in a much brighter light.
