Video: Corvette Museum Sinkhole Update
The sound of machinery clacking in this video is proof that restoring the Skydome at the National Corvette Museum is really underway. And if you sense a bit of sarcasm in my “really” comment, you should because so many of the plans surrounding the museum have been up in the air until recently.
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 National Corvette Museum wrapped up November with a month of tributes honoring our military members, and that’s something we can all be thankful for.
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.
