Corvette Museum adds 1986 Sucker Vette to collection
Underneath, the car featured a cooling fan powered by, of all things, a snowmobile engine that would actually pull the car to the ground with about 1,000 pounds of downforce, which is how it got the name “Sucker Vette.”
With all the focus on the new motorsports park at the National Corvette Museum, there hasn’t been a lot of buzz around the sinkhole that once had the world captivated. Now it looks like things will be revving up again around the site as officials begin filling the sinkhole in three weeks.
You might want to get that ‘Vette of yours ready for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony at the National Corvette Museum MotorSports Park because it’s shaping up to be one of those events you won’t want to miss.
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.
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.
