eBay Corvette find should be covered up forever

Ugly C3 Corvette from eBay

I’ve come under fire for some of my opinions on custom Corvettes, but I won’t back down on my views with this one. This lime-green atrocity with its makeshift truck bed should be covered up forever. If someone wants to be buried in a Corvette, let it be this one.

Now it’s official. The National Corvette Museum will be preserving the sinkhole that continues to keep people flocking to the Kentucky facility in droves just to see the darn thing.

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.

Last Corvette Pulled from Sinkhole — Let’s Hope the Worst is Behind Us

Mallett-Hammer-Z06 featured

The last Corvette has been pulled from the sinkhole, but about the only positive thing I can make of it is that we’re finally over this dreadful part of the ordeal. Donated by Kevin and Linda Helmintoller of Land O’ Lakes, Florida, the Mallett Hammer was valued at about $120,000 at one point, but I can’t even begin to imagine how much money it would take to rebuild it.
