UPDATE 3/7/2014: An error was made in the original story. Insurance is covering a portion of the vehicle damage, but details are still being finalized. GM will then supply the rest and perform the restoration. We apologize for any confusion.

The sinkhole that swallowed eight classic Corvettes at the National Corvette Museum has been making a lot of news lately. Security camera footage quickly surfaced showing the cars falling to their death. Despite the damage, the museum vowed to stay open and that they would also recover and restore the automobiles. To assist, General Motors even volunteered to restore the priceless automobiles. Recovery has been ongoing for about a week, and Adam Boca of NCM Insurance took to Twitter to discuss how things are going.

The “Blue Devil” ZR1 was recovered with minimal damage, and even started and drove off under its own power. The 40th Anniversary Corvette apparently looks worse in photos than what the actual damage is, according to Adam.

The 1962 Corvette is in need of a front and rear clip, new chrome, and a windshield. The 1 Millionth Corvette needs body work and a new suspension. Of the five recovered, the PPG Corvette is in the worst shape.

Until the other cars are safely recovered, they are unable to say the extent of damage to the remaining three Corvettes in the hole. There was a good amount of concrete and debris that fell into hole along with the cars. However, they are optimistic on being able to restore all of the vehicles.

Because of the nature of the sinkhole, insurance may not cover all of the damage to the vehicles. That is why it is exciting to see General Motors pick up the ball and agree to help with additional funding and in the restoration of all the vehicles. They are still on track to have that particular section repaired later this year.

The Corvette museum is open for business. Obviously, the area with the sinkhole is inaccessible to the public, but the rest of the museum is safe and eager to entertain guests. For those planning on a visit this summer, or planning a museum delivery of a new Corvette, they should continue to do so. We will keep you up-to-date as the process continues.
