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.

The First Man on the Moon Owned this Corvette

Neil-Armstrong's-Corvette

When it comes to a car that speaks to the Corvette’s legacy in America in a unique way, this might be one of the coolest I’ve come across in a while. This one-of-a-kind classic, which was on display at the Kennedy Space Center yesterday, is a 1967 Sting Ray once owned by astronaut Neil Armstrong … you know, the first person to walk on the moon. Yeah, this car is kind of a big deal.
