Workers Find the 1.5 Millionth Corvette in the Corvette Museum Sinkhole

Workers Find the 1.5 Millionth Corvette in the Corvette Museum Sinkhole

Last week at the National Corvette Museum, workers repairing the sinkhole began vacuuming the dirt inside the hole where they thought two of the three remaining Corvettes were resting. On Friday, the NCM posted a new photo of what they are saying is the edge of the hood from the 2009 1.5 Millionth milestone car.

The three Corvettes still remaining in the sinkhole are the ZR1 Spyder, the 1.5 Millionth Corvette and the Mallet Z06. The Mallet Z06 is the only Corvette yet to be spotted.

Here is the photo courtesy of the NCM showing the 2009 1.5 Millionth Corvette:

Over the last few weeks and since the first five of eight Corvettes were recovered, workers have reinforced the red spire by drilling micropiles – holes that are 100 feet deep or more – that are then filled with concrete and attached to the spire.

Workers then removed much of the broken concrete flooring that was hanging over the hole before the vacuuming process started last week.

Checking the webcam feeds this morning from the skydome, the construction crews have two cranes on site again which makes us believe they will be going after the remaining the Corvettes in the hole in short order.

We’ll keep you updated as always on any progress at the NCM.
