In an article published on Feb. 13, WDRB News reports plans have been made to restore eight Corvettes that fell into a sinkhole that opened up under the National Corvette Museum early Wednesday morning.

It's been one day since the earth opened up below the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky and swallowed eight Corvettes that were on display, and Chevrolet has already announced plans to have those cars restored.

Officials at the museum say it will take construction crews two or three weeks to stabilize the area surrounding the sinkhole enough to retrieve the cars. Then, crews will start working on bring the Corvettes out of the sinkhole, which is expected to take another six days.

Corvette plant manager Jeff Lamarche told reporters that the cars are not only “represent significant milestones” for the Corvette brand, but also have a place in “automotive history.”

At least three of the eight cars destroyed marked significant milestones for Corvette. Those included the 40th Anniversary Corvette built in 1993, the 1 Millionth Corvette built in 1992, and 1.5 Millionth Corvette built in 2009.
