Corvette Museum Sinkhole Workers Retrieves 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06By Alex Jusi Madlangbayan on Apr 11, 2014 in Automobile, United States, World •
A Corvette Museum sinkhole has eaten up eight cars in the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky last February 12, 2014. On Wednesday, April 9, the last Corvette car, a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06, was hauled out of the museum sinkhole.
Reports say that the Corvette museum sinkhole buried and crumpled the Z06 in dirt and rocks underneath the museum surface. The Z06 reportedly features a 700 horsepower engine.
After the Z06 discovery on Monday, it took three days before workers was able to take the Z06 out of the Corvette museum sinkhole.
Other Corvette cars earlier recovered from the Museum sinkhole include a 2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil”, Mallett Hammer, the white millionth Corvette, a 1962 black Corvette, a 1984 PPG pace car, a 1993 ruby red 40th anniversary Corvette, and a 2009 white 1.5 millionth Corvette and a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder.
The Corvette Museum sinkhole’s final car retrieval was reportedly witnessed by visitors which reopened despite having a 40-foot (12-meter) hole.
