Chevrolet to Restore Sinkhole-Damaged Corvettes

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 2/13/2014 Christian Seabaugh

GM and Chevrolet are stepping up to the plate to help the National Corvette Museum recover from yesterday's sinkhole disaster. Chevy says it'll restore the eight rare Corvettes damaged in yesterday's incident, with GM's Warren Design Center overseeing the task.

The eight damaged Corvettes, including the millionth Corvette ever made and the 1993 Corvette ZR-1 Spyder -- one of only 12 ever made -- will be plucked from the sinkhole, and then shipped to GM Design's Mechanical Assembly facility. The facility is well-qualified to repair the damaged 'Vettes, as it's currently responsible for maintaining and restoring historic GM vehicles.

"We want to ensure as many of the damaged cars are restored as possible so fans from around the world can enjoy them when the Museum reopens.”

The Bowling Green, Ky.-based National Corvette Museum, which has no affiliation with GM, is currently accepting charitable donations on its website to help repair its sinkhole-ravaged facility.
