If you've been following the news from Bowling Green, you know all about the sinkhole that opened up underneath the National Corvette Museum on February 12 and swallowed eight cars whole. You'll also know that officials have a plan in place to extract the cars from the ground and send them to Chevrolet in Michigan for full restoration. But in between, you might get a chance to see the damaged cars in their banged up, unrestored state.

This according to the Detroit Free Press, which cites a museum spokesman in reporting that the damaged cars will be put on display at the National Corvette Museum after they're pulled out of the ground but before they're sent to the GM Heritage Collection in Warren for restoration. That will give visitors a chance to see the damage inflicted by the geological calamity.

All told, eight Corvette display cars fell into the sinkhole, and they remain there while the plan to extract them gets underway. The cars include six vehicles that are part of the NCM permanent collection and a pair of ZR1 models on loan from General Motors.National Corvette Museum to display sinkhole-damaged cars before restoration originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 24 Feb 2014 13:59:00 EST.
